5 Reasons Why You Must Laugh Each Day

Have you forgotten about your teeth set after keeping it somewhere and you decided not to laugh since then? Or do you fear that your nose would disappear from your face when you laugh too much and you would look like a sibling of Voldemort ? Well, there's no such fact which is refraining you from happiness in your life and you need to incorporate joy and humour in your life especially because of these reasons:

Boosts Immune System

It is thousand times better to ache your belly by laughing than to get it in the form of a troublesome illness which may force you to visit restroom very often. On a serious note, being not so serious would help you to avoid seriousness in life and literally that above mentioned seriousness as well (However, there is a way lot seriousness in that sentence). According to some studies, the reason behind this is that laughter actually increases immune cells and those infection-fighting antibodies in the body, thus improving your resistance to disease.


Reduces Stress

When you're feeling like a walking dead or a zombie because life is really taking a toll on you. Or maybe you feel like a maniac(crazy) at times of stress who is fluttering here and there like a headless chicken but hardly finding any place to rest. Well, you need to feed your chicken with some chill pills of laughter because it helps distressing negative or sad emotions. For this, you can watch some sitcom or call your friend who is the joker of your gang. But you don't need to fake a smile like this:

Burns Calories

Do you know that laughing burns calories? That's why the Joker is so skinny.This time it's not a joke so you can find something else to laugh at. Well, it does burn calories but certainly won't replace your workout.According to wellness coach Elizabeth Scott, the act of laughing also helps exercise the diaphragm, your abs and shoulders.And if you are too serious to laugh, then you can join laughter yoga classes to make you laugh but seriously it's embarrassing not to find anything embarrassing around you to make you laugh.

Helps Diffusing Conflicts

Laughter shifts perspective, allowing you to see situations in a more realistic, less threatening way. A humorous perspective creates psychological distance, which can help you avoid feeling overwhelmed and diffuse conflict.Laughter draws you closer to others and helps you forget resentments, judgments, criticisms, and doubts. But here is a quick tip for you that whenever you are in an argument with your parents, don't try to give a funny look because when they will give you something in return, then don't ask your siblings that why they are laughing.


Enhances Positivity

Laughter makes you feel good. And the good feeling that you get when you laugh remains with you even after the laughter subsides. Humor helps you keep a positive, optimistic outlook through difficult situations, disappointments, and loss.More than just a respite from sadness and pain, laughter gives you the courage and strength to find new sources of meaning and hope.
