Laughter is the best medicine
This is a common heard statement from many elderly people, which was the inspiration of this blog. According to HelpGuide.org, Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts your energy, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress.
Laughter is great for your health (according to HelpGuide.org):
1. Relaxes the whole body.
2. Boosts the immune system.
3. Triggers the release of endorphins (which promotes overall wellbeing).
4. Protects your heart.
I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine on earth, due to its physical, mental and social health benefits, laughter should be the most prescribed form of medication by all doctors, rather than those drugs made available by doctors in this day and age.
What is your opinion based on “Laughter being the best medicine”?
