Laughter allows you to release stress
In the brain, laughter promotes the creation of endorphins, which reduces the production of adrenaline generated by stress. These hormones have an antidepressant and anxiolytic effect and therefore influence our mood and make us happy.
When we laugh, our body also releases dopamine, the “happiness molecule”, which contributes to feelings of well-being and pleasure.
Among other things, laughing allows you to relax your muscles, oxygenate your brain, regulate your breathing and therefore easily release tension to better relax.
So don’t deprive yourself of it!
The benefits of laughter on the immune system
Do you want to be in great shape? Do you already adopt a balanced diet and practice sports? Laugh and smile as much as you can and you’ll put the odds on your side!
Positive emotions influence morale, mood and energize you. Combining positive emotions and laughter will strengthen your immune system.
When we laugh, the level of antibodies present in our body increases. We would therefore be less susceptible to diseases and infections. This general strengthening allows us to better resist diseases.
So what are you waiting for to fill your daily quota of fun?
The physical health benefits of laughter
A good sense of humor would improve blood circulation, oxygenate the heart and therefore prevent the risk of disease.
When we laugh, the respiratory exchanges are more and more important and this is how the oxygen reserves are built up. Blood oxygenation has a positive impact on excess cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma, lung infections and headaches.
Laughter contributes to the regulation of intestinal transit, the contraction of the stomach and intestines and promotes the improvement of the digestion process.
So many reasons to give you a daily giggle!
Laughter lessens the pain
Laughter also reduces pain by acting a bit like morphine on the body. Indeed, laughter increases the secretion of anti-inflammatories with antidepressant properties and catecholamines which act like a natural morphine. The interventions of clowns in hospitals in order to distract the sick is proof of this.
Laughter facilitates human relationships by bringing people together, whether in the family, at work or in society. It creates social ties and strengthens friendly, family and professional relationships.
Laughter reduces aggressiveness and de-dramatizes conflict situations in a stressful environment.
It greatly contributes to increasing the stability of the couple and promotes good romantic encounters.
Laughter improves well-being through the sense of togetherness and humor it creates.
