In India they have a yogic exercise that picks up the immune system (More antibodies are created and your T cells become more active take care of your immunity), increases blood flow to all organs and brain, boots your heart rate, and 15 minutes of laughter burns off 50 calories thus helping you to lose weight.
Blood sugar levels go down and thus it helps prevent diabetes… and People who laugh have more energy, they feel more relaxed and have less stress.
Laughter is a good workout for the abs, the shoulders, and for the whole body.
Laughter is a physical release like crying that brings about immense changes in the body, a cleansing of sorts.
People who are in pain who started watching funny movies have their pain go away and they sleep better.
