1. Laughter is good for your health.
Thanks to a natural decrease in stress hormones and an increase in blood flow, you will simultaneously be protecting your body from heart problems when you laugh.
You will also generally strengthen your body’s immune system.
This will decrease your chances of infections and disease, and will keep your vitality strong.
The simple act of laughing releases endorphins into the brain, making you naturally feel good, and who doesn’t want to feel good?
People go to great lengths to release these natural feel-good chemicals.
But if you’re not the type of person to run for an hour, start laughing more, and you’ll begin to notice yourself having a happier, more content disposition in your daily life.
2. Laughter strengthens your relationships.
Don’t be the person radiating the negative energy that comes with stress. Instead, start focusing on radiating laughter and positivity, which are the two things that draw people in.
Incorporating more laughter into your life can increase and strengthen the quality of all your relationships, from romantic to professional.
This, in turn, will increase the quality of your time in all aspects of your life.
3. Laughter shifts your perspective.
Being able to laugh about almost anything will ultimately begin to shift your perspective. Noticing things with a lighter view will help to keep you from feeling overwhelmed by the tasks you need to do. It will also stop you from taking minor setbacks so seriously.
Laughter broadens the mind and decreases the narrow-minded views that focus on the negativity of a situation, rather than the silver lining.
Aren’t we all a little bit jealous of the people who can just go with the flow? Don’t we always wonder how those people can just take a pitfall and turn it into a positive?
Well, it has a lot to do with relaxation.
A good, belly-aching laugh instantly relaxes the whole body and relieves built-up stress and tension.
Having a relaxed body, mind and outlook will help you take on life with a brighter, more positive and relaxed perspective.
4. Laughter makes you more attractive.
People who smile and laugh often are more attractive than people who are unhappy or angry. Cut down your mirror time, skip the heavy face of makeup and start showing off your pearly whites.
Humor also has a tendency to ease the tension or awkwardness in a situation. So, if you’re on a first date, don’t be afraid to crack a joke.
It’s all about people being drawn in to those who inspire, motivate and make them laugh.
