For some people who want to stay healthy without getting tired of doing hard exercises or spending a lot of money on medicine, laughing may be the alternative activity they have to choose.

Laughing is almost the same as aerobics exercise, which benefit especially the upper part of the body. It is a work out for diaphragm, abdominal, respiratory, facial, shoulders, back muscles and even legs. Moreover, it makes digestion and absorption system functioning better. According to some studies, laughter can burn calories equal to walking or biking.

A study conducted at Vanderbilt University demonstrated that 10 to 40 percent calories are burnt through 10 to 15 minutes laughing. In fact, new research published in the International Journal of Obesity said that laughing is the best medicine for a weight problem.


One thing for sure, laughing needs no cost all. It is a natural antibody or in other words priceless medicine. The same as smiling which can increase endorphin hormone, so as laughing can strengthen the immune system and increase natural killer cell levels that prevent the growth of cancer cells. Laughing also makes a person’s body more relaxed and thereafter reduces problems related to high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke, depression, anxiety, stress, arthritis, and ulcer.

Most of the time, laughing is also an exercise for the heart and lungs. It can increase the amount of oxygen getting through our body. Thus, laughter is believed to stimulate both sides of brain and enhance the brain function related to retaining information and solving problem.

Believe it or not, children laugh more than adult. This is pathetic because adult is the one who has more problems. That is why they need more laughter to overcome them. Or is it because they laugh less thus they have more problems?
