Research has proven that people who laugh on a regular basis have a lower blood pressure than the average person. At first levels rise but quickly drop below normal. So watch a great comedy and lower your blood pressure.


The physical response of laughter is very fast. After our senses are exposed to something “funny”, an electric current runs through our nervous system to our cerebral cortex. The higher brain functions in the left hemisphere decode the words and the syntactical structure in a very analytic approach to the information, while the more creative right hemisphere understands the humor, or “gets it”.

The visual center of our brain then forms an image of the humorous idea, while our emotional (limbic) system releases chemicals that improve mood or promote happiness. Finally, our motor functioning makes us laugh, smile, or double over for a real knee-slapper.

By seeking out humorous situations or participating in activities that will stimulate laughter, you are giving your body a chance to exercise the diaphragm, as well as facial, leg, back, and abdominal muscles. Cortisol and adrenaline levels in the body, which are considered stress hormones, can be reduced through laughter, thereby adding to overall health. Also, the increase in respiration aids in the oxygenation of blood flowing to the brain and the rest of the body.

  1. Interesting video, but laughter did not help a person who died from drug overdose (Philip Seymour Hoffman) or one that died from depression (Robin Williams). You might not have a point with these two 🙂

    1. I understand what you are saying. Although it may not help a person with an organic mental imbalance, it has been proven to improve health.
