  • Laughing causes you to tighten the muscles in your abdomen. So, if you laugh a lot, you could get a six-pack.
  • It improves your overall sense of well-being. It gives you a positive outlook and keeps you from dwelling on the negative. Smiling and laughing can help you live a long life.
  • Laughter reduces your stress hormone levels and lowers your anxiety. Stress and anxiety are hard on your body and can lead to injuries or illness. Reducing your stress hormones is a great benefit of laughter.

Benefits of Laughing

Believe it or not, laughing a lot is a great cardio workout. It gets your heart pumping and can burn as many calories as walking. Who knew that the simple act of laughing could help you get in better shape?

Your body uses T-cells to fight illness, and laughing increases your T-Cell count. Chuckling and Giggling can be an important part of overcoming an illness. So, laugh it up; it will make you feel better.

It lowers your blood pressure. Laughing at a comic, movie, comedian, or television show can significantly lower your blood pressure. This also reduces your risk of a heart attack or stroke.

A new practice called ‘Laughter Yoga’ was started specifically to promote the health benefits of laughing. In the class, participants laugh and cause other members to laugh. The camaraderie and socializing help calm the class and can even help people with dementia.

Does laughing cause wrinkles?

The short answer is smiling and laughing do cause wrinkles. But so do talking, yelling, and frowning. Anything that causes the facial muscles to move creates a line or groove in the face, Hence the term ‘laugh lines.’ I don’t know about you, but I would rather have laugh lines than frown lines.
