Benefits of a Good Belly Laugh. Defense Shield Pro Review Laughter has both short term and long term benefits for body, mind and spirit. It enhances respiration and circulation, lowers blood pressure, and boosts the immune system. It increases productivity, reduces stress and enhances sleep. Laughter reduces pain by producing endorphins that are more potent than equivalent amounts of morphine. A hearty bout of laughter induces a state of Well-Being and is a powerful coping mechanism. We simply cannot have a good belly laugh and remain highly tense at the same time.

So if laughter is so good, why don’t we do more of it. Why don’t we add laughing rooms to health clubs. Well, somebody already thought of that. In 1995, the first of the Laughing Clubs International were started in Bombay, India. Some of these laughing clubs incorporate jogging with their laughing. Members of these laughing clubs report feeling better and losing weight too. Whether or not it’s the laughter, the physical exercise, or just being with other people, we all know that when we laugh we simply feel better.
