Health Benefits of Laughter
Here is the list of health benefits of laughter.
It might sound silly but the best way to fight stress is to laugh. However, it is best to take help from funny videos or something humourous that can help elevate your mood.
According to a 2015 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicines, watching a funny program or being around people with a good sense of humor can help fight stress and depression. Psychologists believe 60-minute laughter therapy can boost a person’s mood, self-esteem, and overall health.
Doctors believe laughing can produce natural painkillers that can help relieve your pain. Scientifically, it is believed that it lowers cortisol hormone, a stress hormone and elevates serotonin hormone. According to a 2011 study, researchers from Oxford University observed that patients who laughed felt less pain. The study concluded that laughter without positive emotions aids pain relief.
