Daily laughter is important for everyone to have, especially in these stressful and uncertain times where its often hard to stay positive. Laughing regularly is known to have many benefits on both our physical and mental health. According to the Mayo Clinic, some short-term effects of laughter include stimulating organs, activating and relieving your stress response, and soothing tension. Long term effects include improving your immune system, reducing pain, increasing personal satisfaction and improving your mood overall.
