Why Laughter is Good for Your Health

Standard

When I’m feeling blue, I will often self-medicate… by watching reruns of America’s Funniest Home Videos or two full hours of SpongeBob SquarePants. A good belly laugh will often take me right out of that rut. But did you know that laughter also has anti-aging benefits? According to this infographic, laughter helps tone facial muscles and increase blood supply to the face, giving it a healthy glow. Laughter also burns calories, lower blood sugar levels, strengthens the immune system, reduces food cravings and boosts energy.

To quote Nicolas Chamfort, “The most wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed.” Laughter truly is the best medicine. Here’s wishing you a day of love, laughter and light.
