Laugh Your Way to Better Health

37 replies
Research indicates that laughter is good for relieving stress.



Having a series of heart felt chuckles a day, can lower the levels of stress hormones in the body and increase the endorphin levels in the brain. These are the same 'feel good' hormones produced in the brain after having an exhilarating and intense workout; whether at the gym or having a walk or run at the park.



Interestingly enough, laughing is also free!



You don't have to pay a monthly fee to laugh...you can feel good whenever you want to! Ironically, the more you feel good the more you attract more things that make you feel good into your life, and the more you are likely able to achieve your short term and long term life goals.

    "Laughing is the medicine used by the particular science called Psycho Neuro Endocrine Immunology (PNEI), which has already made way into many American hospitals, but which in Europe is still to be recognised by official medicine as a valid therapy."

    Actually "the more you laugh , the more you cry " was a saying once upon a time,but now a days it is totally false,laugh is treated as a medicine for many heart diseases,it increases ones facial freshness,remove tension.
    If you wanna make happy your girl friend ,there is no alternative of it.

    Now a days models are selling it at high cost,without it a model can't survive in the large glamor world.

    Richard Carlson insightfully discusses this
    Happiness is a state of mind, not a set of circumstances..you can never find happiness by ''searching'' because the moment you do, you imply it is found outside yourself. Happiness isn't outside yourself. It is a feeling, the natural feeling of your innatehealthy psycological functioning...when you understand that happiness is nothing more than a feeling, you can help it grow and maintain itself when you do feel it...Happiness requires no effort at all. In fact, it's more of a letting go of unhappinessthan it is a striving for happiness''
    So Happiness is a choise. Dalai Lama ofers a similar message
    ''...we add to the unhappiness by being overly sensitive, overreacting to minor things, and sometimes taking things too personally. We tend to take small trhings too seriusly and blow them out of proportion, while at the same time we remain indifferent to the really important things, those things wich have profound effects on our lives and longterm consequences and implications''
    so, let go of unhappiness,

    There is no greater medicine than laughter. In a high paced, high stress world that we live in, people often forget what is most important and that is to enjoy life and to have fun. Live, love, laugh

    Yeah! Laughter is the best dose for stress. Laughing is somehow makes you even more better because you feel happiness and joy.

    A sense of humor is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.

      If you think you are not that funny of a person, that is ok, stop believing this and start realizing that we all have an inquisitive sense of humor that is waiting to come out. Not thinking that you are funny is only a mental block, (maybe like writers block) so stop blocking yourself and start realizing that we all can be funny people. Laughing genuinely is a really good feeling, genuinely making people laugh feels even better. We can all be funny and charismatic people if we are able to realize that about ourselves so start practicing. And remember that it is ok to laugh at ourselves too.

    An increasing number of doctors have come to appreciate the value of laughter and how it assists in the healing process. Some have even started prescribing watching situation comedies or movies. They have found that patients suffering chronic disease and cancers tend to use fewer painkillers. This is because these patients are distracted from the pain and kept entertained at the same time.

    Laughterhas to be the best medicine for a bad day, seriously I use it when stress gets to the highest levels (usually on a Monday when you wake up late for a meeting, stub your toe on the bed, drop the shower gel on that toe, and find I have left the house in slippers), get on the smartphone and a youtube fail always does the trick, lol

    Awesome indeed! That is why it is a must to always do something everyday that you enjoy, that makes you smile and laugh. It is so beneficial in so many ways that it is a must to plan out and get it done.

    I am still confused as to why people choose not to smile and to simply live on a miserably routine day in and day out. They tend to blame everything around them without taking a step back and recognize their blessings. =-D

    Thanks again!
