Why It Works
Laughter is the Best Medicine. Humans were designed to laugh. Laughter is nature's stress buster. It lifts our spirits with a happy high that makes us feel good and improves our behavior towards others.
Just a few generations ago happy healthy humans spent 20 minutes a day or more in laughter. Now adult daily laugh time is down to 5 minutes or less in many countries. This is one of the worst aspects of 'modern life'.
Laugh yourself healthy. We all know that laughter makes us feel good. A regular 20 minute laughter session can have a profound impact on our health and wellbeing. Laughter is gentle exercise. It fills your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-cleans your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise.
When we laugh our bodies release a cocktail of hormones & chemicals that have startling positive effects on our system. Stress is reduced, blood pressure drops, depression is lifted, your immune system is boosted & more. Western science is just starting to discover the great effects of laughter.
