Why Laughing at Yourself Can Boost Your Health

If you feel better in all different ways after a good laugh, even when it’s at yourself, it’s not all your head, NBC News reports. Studies show that an ability to laugh at yourself not only means you have a healthy perspective as to where you fit in the universe, but also is good for your overall health including your heart.

I’ve long been a proponent of smiles, laughter and positive thoughts for boosting both your mental, emotional and physical health. A universal language across all cultures, laughter can reduce stress hormones and boost your immune function, while also inducing optimistic feelings, offering pain relief and more. Indeed, research has shown laughter may reduce stress hormones and boost your immune function, while also inducing optimistic feelings.

Laughter has also demonstrated a wealth of other physiological, psychological, social, spiritual and quality-of-life benefits, such that increasing numbers of health care centers are adopting laughter therapy as a form of complementary care.

Your mind wields incredible power over the health of your immune system, for good or for bad. Stress, for instance, has a major negative influence on the function of your immune system, which is why you've probably noticed you're more likely to catch a cold when you're under a lot of stress. In fact, when researchers infected study participants with a common cold virus, those who had reported being under stress were twice as likely to get sick.

Healing thoughts are also a good way to boost your health and psychological energy. Positive thoughts are able to prompt changes in your body that strengthen your immune system, decrease pain and chronic disease, and provide stress relief.
