    Physiological Benefits


    Laughter is a great thing -- that is why we have all heard the saying, "Laughter is the best medicine." There is strong evidence that laughter can actually improve health and advancements in technologies and medical researches are now saying laughter might even be able to basically bring balance to all the components of the immune system, fighting of diseases besides just giving us a sense of enjoyment. Laughter might just be the finest and most economical to fight stress without any negative side effects.


    Being the physiological response to humour, laughter makes us feel euphoric and a sense of relaxation for a reason. It being different from humour, an instance on an ordinary and innocent laughter would be able to relieve us of stress, reducing the pressures of our busy life. Being one of the easiest forms of meditation, laughter brings you a moment of peace and relaxation without conscious thought process.
