7 Reasons to Laugh Every Day

October 14, 2014

Laughter is definitely the best medicine.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and it’s definitely true! There are a lot of health benefits that come from laughing, and if you do it each day, you will be able to see an increase not only in your health and well-being, but also in your mood and self-confidence. Here are a few things laughing can do for you.

1. Lowers Blood Pressure. Laughing regularly exercises the heart, making for a healthier cardiovascular system and lowering blood pressure.

2. Reduces Hormone Stress Levels. Laughing reduces these hormones, which cuts anxiety and stress impacting the body. There’s really no better way to de-stress!

3. Works Diaphragm, Ab Muscles, and Respiratory System. Laughing can sometimes feel like a workout in and of itself, and that’s because it is! Your whole body benefits from the act of laughing.

4. Improves Cardiac Health. Laughter increases blood flow and gets your heart pumping. Not to mention, it burns calories in the process. It’s like a mini-workout for your heart!

5. Boosts Immune System. Laughter is great for your T-Cells and other infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.

6. Triggers the Release of Endorphins. These are the body’s natural pain-killers and feel-good chemicals. Laughter makes you feel great, and can even temporarily relieve pain.

7. Increases Overall Well-being. Laughing makes you feel good! It’s fun to do, and it automatically boosts your mood.

These benefits are too good to pass up, so make sure you get in at least one good laugh in each day, and share it with others.

"I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Petty and the BDC staff. Everyone is just so friendly, caring and understanding of the situation. I stopped in a couple of times after some tests, and everyone had smiles on their faces. It is a beautiful, well-organized environment."
