Laugh More And Live More

Much before the medical science discovered it, Readers Digest came out with the prescription-Laughter is the Best Medicine. Newspapers and magazines which regularly run humor columns are, therefore, doing their bit to keep the readers in good health. Reading light articles, whether they be satirical, comical or just humorous, relieves the tedium of work-a-day world.

It is said that if you laugh for ten minutes you will be in better position to put with pain for two hours. According to US researchers, laughter tones up the system and is a good antidote to stress. Facial laugh muscles instruct the brain to feel ‘feel good’ regardless of how you feel.

According to a French doctor, laughter deepens breathing, improves blood circulation, speeds up the process of tissue healing and stabilizes many body functions. In short it acts as a powerful drug with no side effects. Researchers state that laughter stimulates production of beta-endorphins, natural pain killers in the body and improve digestion. Those who laugh are less prone to digestive disorders and ulcers.

Some people in France have made it a career. You can hire a person who cracks jokes and laughs and promises to make you dissolve your worries in helpless laughter. Even in India you can see in many parks during the morning and evening, classes go on laughter therapy.

Laughing with food in the mouth is dangerous as the foodstuff can get into the wind pipe and may choke the digestive system. Eating, anyway, is a serious business not to be trifled by any jocular diversion. Laughter comes best when it is free of encumbrances, whether it is constricting food or the need to humor the boss.
