Laughing makes you young…

‘What is it about laughing that make us feel so much better?’

I was asked to do a radio interview last week about the power of laughter. I was asked the question, ‘What is it about laughing that make us feel so much better?’

Here are 7 reasons why it’s good to laugh:

1.    Laughter helps relieve depression

Research shows that  to laugh and be depressed at the same time is physically impossible. They are opposite poles and it’s only possible for the body to do one or the other.  Laughter helps people who are suffering from SAD or who are experiencing depression – it’s the fastest way to lift our moods from low to high. For those feeling down, a great prescription is watching a good comedy or seeing friends who lift you up and make you laugh out loud.

2.   Increases feelings of connection with friends and builds rapport with others 

When we laugh with someone, a high vibration is set up and we feel rapport with the other person – we ‘twinkle’ with one another and this feels really good.  Laughing brings people together. The body gets a shot of endorphins and it’s uplifting as well as healing for our cells. Laughter has been shown to be a powerful healer of the body.

3. Good for love – you are very attractive when you laugh

When we laugh, we are considered happy and attractive by others.  People love being around those who give out good energy and those who laugh a lot.  Laughter can help you find a mate:  studies report that we are more attracted to others who laugh in our presence. Women are shown to laugh 125% more than men in research studies.

4. Laughter is a high vibration activity

On the scale of emotions, laughing is a very high frequency emotion. This means while we are laughing, our cells and energy levels are beaming out at a fast and high vibration. In my book ‘Instructions for happiness..’, I explain what science says about this and the different levels of emotional highs. It’s powerful stuff. As we vibrate at higher frequencies, we feel better, get healthier and start attracting much better experiences into life.

5. Protects your heart

Laugher positively affects the way that blood flows around the body, reducing the likelihood of heart disease.  The research says that 15 minutes of laughter a day is as important for your heart as 30 minutes of exercise three times a week.

6. Improves breathing

Laughter empties your lungs of more air than we take in which has a cleansing effect.

7. Booster for your immune system 

Laughter boost the immune system, increases the number of antibody producing T cells. It also lowers the levels of at least four hormones associated with stress, so after a good giggle you feel fare less tense and anxious.

Live well
