It’s no joke: Laughter relieves stress. Laughing doesn’t just change our mental state in the moment, it literally (yes, literally, scientifically proven) helps all of our organs function because we’re taking in more oxygen.  So laughing is like breathing only more fun. 😉 The increase of inhaled air benefits our hearts, lungs and muscles while endorphins are released by our brains. Heart rate slows and blood pressure drops as tension eases due to stimulated circulation and muscle relaxation.  Over time our immune systems get stronger from laughter as the chemical reactions triggered by stress are countered by those released from laughter. Pain is reduced as moods heighten. In light of all that good stuff, I have some more cheesy jokes for you.
