The benefits abound:
Physical Health Benefits
We've all been there: there is nothing more beneficial in a stressful situation than to have someone make a funny comment to break the tension with laughter. It just feels like such a relief. Inexpensive laughter therapy provides a harmless way for negative emotions to be released. No only that, but as it turns out, studies show that laughter also factually physically reduces levels of certain stress hormones.
So when you feel a lot of tension in lour life, it might be a good idea to rent a funny movie.
Or hang out with a friend to crack some jokes.
Depression is certainly not a laughing matter. However, having a sense of humor certainly helps you buffer against the negatives that life offers all of us. As shown in studies: people who use humor as a big part of everyday life actually have more friends. And we all know that loneliness is never a good thing for a depressed individual.
Whether the positive attitude makes us focus less on our ailments. But is has shown to be a genuine health perk as well. Make sure to get a good daily laugh: it really does burn actual calories. To laugh out loud 100 times turns out to be equal to 10 minutes of exercise on the rowing machine or 15 minutes on a stationary bike. Haha! Have you ever felt really exhausted after a great laughing session? Well, your muscles have also been active, in the abdomen, respiratory, heart, facial, and leg areas.
Forget the gym! Just get plenty of laughter time a day and you will be good.
