Did you Know About all these Health Benefits of Laughing?

This infographic, courtesy of GreatCleanJokes.com , covers the wide ranging health benefits of laughing. Laughter is unique in that it’s one of the only ‘feel good’ activities that’s actually good for your health. It works to reduce pain, relieve stress, improve heart health, and even help you sleep better.
The graphic covers several interesting statistics, including one particularly interesting study that required college students to test their pain threshold by putting their hand in a bucket of ice cold water. Those who watched a comedy prior to the experiment were able to keep their hands in the water 40% longer than those who did not watch the comedy. In another study, people who laugh more frequently required significantly less pain medication after surgery. See more interesting laughter insights in the infographic below!
