Laughter provides physical, emotional, and social benefits. Physically, it reduces stress, relaxes our muscles, decreases pain, boosts our immune system, and strengthens our heart. Laughing causes “happy hormones”—endorphins—to be released through our bodies, while suppressing stress hormones, such as cortisol, epinephrine, and dopamine. When we laugh, we also exercise our core, diaphragm, and abdominal muscles, and improve circulation and the function of blood vessels. Make an effort to smile more. Smile at others when you pass by them. Smile when you see something pleasing. Smile when you are with loved ones or friends. Make smiling a more regular part of your facial expressions throughout the day.
