Why Laughter Is Good For You

Laughter is contagious. Ever found that you start laughing just because others laugh?

Laughter researcher, Robert R.Provine, said: "Laughter is a mechanism everyone has; laughter is part of the universal human vocabulary. There are thousands of languages, hundreds of thousands of dialects, but everyone speaks laughter in pretty much the same way.” Everyone can laugh. Babies have the ability to laugh before they ever speak. Children who are born blind and deaf still retain the ability to laugh.

Laughter gives you a natural high. It lights up the reward center of your brain and releases feel-good chemicals, including dopamine and endorphins.

And do you know that laughter can raise your heart rate 10% to 20%? If you can manage to laugh for 15 minutes every day, you could laugh off 4 pounds in a year.

The Wife

  • A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't follow my instructions carefully, your husband will surely die.

"Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don't burden him with chores. Don't discuss your problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. And do not nag him. Most importantly, make love to him regularly.

If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely." On the way home, the husband asked his wife, "What did the doctor say?"

"He said you're going to die," she replied.

Why Laughter Is Healthy

Laughter Really is the Best Medicine. Here are a few facts on why laughter is good for the mind, body and even the soul.

  • Laughter really does burn calories - 10 to 15 minutes of hearty laughter can burn 50 calories.
  • Humor may raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies.
  • Laughter, along with an active sense of humor, may help protect you against a heart attack.
  • Laughter immediately reduces stress and worry.
  • The only reason to take up jogging is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
  • "When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." - Henny Youngman

And here is one of my favorites:

  • 3 Doctors are at a Convention talking Shop. The first Doctor says: "I love doing surgery on Artists, they are so colorful: red Hearts, pink Stomachs, green Spleens."

The next Doctor says: "Me, I love doing surgery on Accountants, open them up and all their Parts are numbered, makes it very easy.”

The third Doctor says: "I love doing surgery on Lawyers, they have no Heart, they have no Guts and the Head and the Ass are interchangeable!"

  • Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong preaching on the devil. One said to the other, 'What do you think about all this Satan stuff?'

The other boy replied, "Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. It's probably just your Dad."

  • Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers. The first boy says,"My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50.."

The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100."

The third boy says, "I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!"

Learning to find humor in the little things that go on around you is going to add years to your life. If you look hard enough and long enough, you can always find something to laugh about. And if you can't manage a good old giggle, then even a smile will help you to have a better day. I laugh at myself almost every day. It's either laugh or cry and I prefer to laugh.

Learning to live on the "light side" is a choice. If you are looking at the glass as "half empty", only you have the power to see that same glass as "half full".
