Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink, or use drugs when stressed; I write.

Studies show that laughter is the best medicine, it is irresistibly contagious and a powerful healer. Taking the time to find things that make you laugh brings spiritual healing. Healing aims to restore balance to the whole body. The cure and the healing destination each target the underlying cause of the illness. Spiritual healing can help people release stress and transform their lives in miraculous ways.

We expect laughter during comedy humor to lighten your burdens, it’s fun to share a good laugh, but most of all, laughter can improve your health.

A study shows that laughter can relieve tension and stress and boost the immune system. encourages people to laugh at happiness linked to a longer life, and depression can shorten life.

While Clark University’s study asks one group to smile and the other to frown, the result shows both groups as cartoons and the group with a mere act of a smile show to start happiness centers in the brain. The frown did not show happiness to the brain. The research study is supportive of my topic. “Laughter does good like a medicine.”

There are plenty of depressed and sick people in the world today, and this is my thought why. The answer is simple. They are ill because they don’t take the time to consume their medicine. One of the most contagious cures we can take, laughter, does good like medicine.

When we live our life depressed, working a toxic job, and living on the edge, it causes sickness. If you want to make sure you don’t become ill, take a dose of medicine, “Laughter.” And it would also help to read Proverbs 17: 22.

Laughter is a way of really letting out all this pressure that you could face in your daily life in the suffering of your people, and comedy is almost like a medicine to your soul in a way. Hiam Abbass Life Daily Face


Proverb 17:22 states, “A happy heart is like good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing,” indicating that we should not live our lives working long hours on the edge, laughter will make you feel better, and not only will it make you feel better but it truly releases healing for the soul. When you laugh, it repairs and restores what the pressures of life have taken away from you.

In reality, most of us live our lives connected with toxic substances, stuff that makes us sick in various ways. Life comprises many struggles and challenges. According to the Bible, we will all experience heartaches, trouble, and tribulations during our lives. He still tells us that a happy heart does us good. “Laughter does good like a medicine.”

Occasionally, we experience periods of extreme happiness and sleep deprivation. We find that much of this will change if we connect our lives to laughter.

Laughter will help you overcome anything going wrong, as long as you can continue to laugh during your troubles. The pain and sadness that we feel can find relief in God as he has given us a stress reliever called laughter. Laughter enhances the function of blood vessels and improves blood flow. It can reduce the pain that brings discomfort and relaxes the body.

Perhaps your medicine probability comes with a prescription. I have a prescription for you today: whenever you feel down and helpless; you need to find something that will make you laugh; you could talk to someone who wants to be a comedian or watch a funny movie. Laugh at least three times a day by finding something funny that makes you laugh loudly instead of just chuckling.

If you feel sorry for yourself, did you know that every time you allow yourself to laugh, it boosts your energy and spirit inside? Laughter releases tension and lowers blood pressure. A person having trouble sleeping sleeps better after taking this supplement.

I do believe that laughter is the best medicine - it cures everything. Radhika Apte

BeBe Winans echoed, Laughter Does Good like a Medicine in a song. He sings the lyrics to remind everyone what they should do during their worst times. In the lyric, he shows that the best way to deal with a bad day is to laugh.

In my opinion, BeBe did an outstanding job debuting the song. His incredible voice blends well with Koreans that it will leave you smiling, filled with laughter. I saw him perform with Korean Soul on Strahan and Sara’s TV show.

BeBe said to Keke Palmer, and Michael Strahan on TV that he was previously planning to sing Laughter Does Good Like Medicine with Boys 2 Men but made the decision to contact the group, Korean artist and he did not disappoint. They sound great together.
