Everyone loves a good laugh, but studies show that laughter not only makes us feel good, it offers actual health benefits as well. Laughing can decrease the number of damaging stress hormones in the body, as well as help lower blood pressure and increase the immune system. And let’s face it, laughing, especially when shared with others, just feels good.

But finding that laughter isn’t always as easy as it seems. The stress of everyday life can make laughter difficult to come by, so the challenge is to try and find some laughter, even at times when you don’t really feel like laughing. Keep in mind that feeling angry and stressed out can be damaging to the body, so it is important to try and lighten up.
