Laughter helps reduce stress

Laughter boosts hormones. Laughter reduces the level of stress hormones like cortisol, and epinephrine. Laughter also increases the level of health-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and neurotransmitters.

Laughter creates friendships by strengthening human connections. We use laughter to deflect anger and aggression and to communicate goodwill.

Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter increases the number of antibody-producing cells and enhances the effectiveness of T cells. This means a stronger immune system, as well as fewer physical effects of stress.

Laughter strengthens abdominal muscles. Laughter exercises the diaphragm, contracts the abs and even works out the shoulders, leaving muscles more relaxed afterward.

We'll teach you how to #LiveTo100!
