Laughter's Serious Benefits

"How do angels answer the phone?"
Answer. "Halo?" 
(Make it a point to watch comedies and funny light-hearted shows.  Be sure you don't laugh "at" people but "with them.)
(from Papemelroti's Box of Laughs)
It's the Easter Season!  It's the perfect time to rejoice, celebrate and laugh!

"In heaven, the sound of Easter laughter resounds" - Catholic Register

According to Gelotology or the study of humor and laughter, laughing has a manifold of benefits.  Why laugh? Read on.
Studies like Fritz Strack's in 1988 and Robert Soussignan in 2002 conclude that the bigger the smile, the happier one gets, even if the person is just "faking it".  It showed that soon enough, respondents that kept on smiling, became genuinely happier.  If you can become happier just by smiling, how much more if you're laughing out loud.

Various researchers like Sondra Kornblatt's and Johns Hopkins University Medical School prove that if you laugh more often you'll have:
  • Higher level of happiness
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better circulation and oxygenation
  • Healthier abs, lungs, facial, leg, and back muscles
  • Less stress 
  • Stronger immune system
  • Better memory and learning skills
  • Improved alertness, creativity, and memory
  • Stronger bond with people you're laughing with
  • Energy boosts
  • Decrease in pain
  • Better problem solving skills
  • Better sense of humor
  • Greater level of emotional intelligence
  • Some relaxation
Can you think of some more benefits?
