They say it's the best medicine

'A day without laughter is a day wasted'

Charlie Chaplin

Next time that you feel stressed or anxious, or even if you are ill, find something to laugh at. It’s simple and it lowers symptoms related to stress. Laughing can release natural pain relievers and help to bolster the immune system. Whenever I am ill, I make it a mission, to watch the films that make me laugh out loud.

It is known to lower cortisol and help to release the good ‘ole happy chemical endorphins. Just think even if you are feeling a little bit down, a small dose of laughter will cheer you up without fail. Make time to laugh whenever you can. It is sure to lift you up, when you’re down in the dumps.

Most of us take ourselves way too seriously; laughing at ourselves is a great way to boost our immunity. Yep, give yourself a chance to be silly. Just think you could find that you see laughter in situations that usually send you stir crazy.

Often when we get to our adult lives we laugh less often than we did when we were children. Children are fabulous at finding anything and everything to laugh at. They laugh at the most silly and inane things. This in turn keeps them happy…
