Research has shown that laughing and smiling can do wonders for your mood, your health, your relationships and even your abs!
Any mirth-related activity, from a cheeky grin to a full-fat belly laugh, will release mood-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and decrease stress-inducing hormones like cortisol.
There is also a lot of research going into the notion that laughing helps your body release more antibody producing cells and improves the performance of T cells. Both of these are essential components of our immune systems.
It’s well known that a smile uses a lot fewer muscles than a frown, but did you know that a big ol’ laugh will work out your diaphragm, your heart, your abdominal muscles and your shoulders?
So there we have it: start and end your day with a smile and you’re well on your way to health and happiness.
