Laugh It Off: How Laughing is Beneficial To Your Health

They might say that laughter is the best medicine, but how true is that old expression? According to this infographic, laughing is actually great for your health. In fact, laughing ups your blood flow by 22%, which can take a lot of the edge of of your stress given that stress can reduce your blood flow by 35%.

Additionally, laughing can boost your immune system, improve your respiration, reduce stress, raise your heart rate, elevate your pain tolerance, induce a positive emotional state, exercise your muscles, enhance your mental capabilities and more. It seems that no matter what kind of medicine you’re in need of, laughter may indeed be able to help (though we still suggest seeing a doctor and following your prescribed medical routine as well).
