Nearly everyone has experienced the rush of a great laugh and that relaxed feeling that follows.

The healthy joy of laughter

It turns out that laughter is fantastic for stress relief!

Laughter causes an increase in the feel-good hormone called endorphins.

And not only that, but laughter causes a decrease in the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine.

It’s a known fact that stress and an overload of stress hormones are damaging, so laughing is a great release.
