Laughter can be good for your health

If you’re feeling a bit fatigued, try laughing. Researchers also think that laughing can be the best medicine to make you feel better when you’re down. Steve Wilson, a psychologist and laugh therapist says “I believe that if people can get more laughter into their lives, they are a lot better off.”

Researchers don’t actually think that laughing is the best medicine, but a good sense of humor and staying positive are the true secrets to staying healthy. Laughing is also a great stress reliever. There’s no need for stress-relieving balls when you can just laugh.

Three ways to get people to laugh:

1. Tell them a joke

2. Have them watch a funny video. I recommend funny animal videos

3. Mimic them or make a funny face.
