Laughter is the Best Medicine

Searching for happiness is a big part of our life. We not only want it but we have an inner need and desire to spread joy to others. I notice that when I tell a funny story and make someone laugh, I wish I could tell another one. Laughter and smiles are contagious and spread from person to person.

“Humor helps keep life in perspective,” said Gary K. Palmer, a BYU professor. “When a person laughs, blood pressure decreases, heart rate and respiration increase, the body releases endorphins, and depression declines. After the laughter subsides and you relax again, that good feeling has a lasting effect, even until the next day. Not many medicines will do that.” (The Power of Laughter, Ensign, September 2007)”
