Laughter is a physical reaction in humans and some other species of primate, consisting typically of rhythmical, often audible contractions of the diaphragm and other parts of the respiratory system. It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli.
Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Laughter the best medicine
4. Music is one of the few activities in life that involve using the whole brain.
Finnish researchers have developed a groundbreaking new method that allows to study how the brain processes different aspects of music, such as rhythm, tonality and timbre (sound color) in a realistic listening situation. The study is pioneering in that it for the first time reveals how wide networks in the brain, including areas responsible for motor actions, emotions, and creativity, are activated during music listening. The new method helps us understand better the complex dynamics of brain networks and the way music affects us.

Laughter is strong medicine for mind and body
“Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.” ~ Paul E. McGhee, Ph.D.
Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh.
Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.
With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health.
Some things can be restored. Those that can’t, we learn to love… just the way they are.
Did you know that they say a child will laugh on an average 400 times a day? An adult averages 15 times a day. Why we don’t laugh more, is a mystery because it does make you feel so good.
There are great benefits to laughter, for the mind and the spirit. Laughing also helps us physically.
Norman Cousins said that laughter is so good for the body that it is like “Inner Jogging”
The Mayo clinic reports that laughter aids breathing by disrupting your normal respiration pattern and increasing your breathing rate. It can even help clear mucus from your lungs. (Mayo Clinic Health Letter, March 1993)
Laughter has been so effective in the recovery of illnesses that hospitals have created rooms dedicated to humor and have installed cable TV with comedy channels in patient rooms.
Laughter is good for the heart. It increases circulation and improves delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues throughout the body.
A good laugh helps your immune system fight off colds, flue and sinus problems by increasing the concentration of immunoglobulin A in your saliva. It may help control pain by raising the levels of certain brain chemicals.(endorphins). It is said to lower blood pressure.
Laughing is also a natural stress reliever. Doesn’t it feel good laugh so hard it brings tears to your eyes, doubled up with laughter, fall off a chair, spit out your food or wet your pants!
Apparently you cannot maintain muscle tension when you are laughing! It has been said that if you can laugh for at least 15minutes a day it can prolong your life. I guess they dont mean 15 minutes all at once but through out the day.
So the moral of the story is if you don’t laugh then you are denying your body and soul great health benefits. Laughter makes you happy, less stressful to be around, a pleasure and good for your relationship, good for your face muscles, helps you cope with problems. It can be a safety valve.
Remember: Laughter is good medicine.
