Positive Effects of Laughter

What hinders you to laugh right now? Is it because of work? Can it be because of the stress your kids are giving you? What about the worries your elderly parents bring you with all their new and concerning ailments? With so much going on with our lives, we are tempted to sulk and live in discouragements.

Our clients are often occupied with finding the best medicines, programs and treatments our elderly patient needs that they forget one important and priceless thing: laughing. So with that being said, Greenacres Adult Day Care, an adult day care center in Greenacres Florida, would like to share with you the positive effects of laughter and these are:

1. Increases HGH
Good news for all the ladies and gents out there who are freaked out by the effects of aging to their body. You need not purchase anti-aging creams or other supplements to stay young for laughing can do the trick. HGH is an anti-aging hormone and it can be produced even if one is just anticipating a good laugh.

2. Improves sleep
What do you do when insomnia strikes? Have you tried laughing yourself to sleep? Japanese researchers found out that even by laughing, our body is confident to make more melatonin, the very hormone that is released by our brain to encourage sleep.

3. Becomes a form of physical exercise
It is beneficial for seniors to get exercise and one and easier form of it is laughing for it can exercise the diaphragm, the shoulders and even the abdomen. This is the very reason why we promote Laughter Yoga here in our adult day care center in Greenacres Florida.

4 .Eases and relaxes tensioned muscles
Laughing allows one’s tensioned muscles to relax. This benefit particularly targets the muscles in ones:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Shoulder
  • Abdomen

5. Aids free breathing
Who needs swimming when you can just laugh your way to increase your lung capacity? Laughing can clear out your lungs as it helps exhale all the stale air inside of you out and inhale fresh air in return.

6. Keeps a person young
We cannot stress enough the importance of how laughing makes one younger as we end our list with this fact. It is obvious that laughing can decrease the stress you present to your face. With this stress, your muscle tightens around your face thus forming wrinkles. When we laugh, the tension we give our face, neck and head is released. This makes us look younger by many years.
