Laughing a lot helps relieve stress and makes us happier. Crying relieves stress, too. Our pulse and breathing even out.
Laughing helps produce immune cells and antibodies. This helps our immune system fend off the causes of disease.
Crying releases endorphins and oxytocin. Both hormones boost our mood and promote well-being. This lifts our spirits. Repressing feelings causes depression and high blood pressure.
Laughing reduces the sensation of pain. The body produces endorphins, which make us feel good. Laughter therapy is used to tackle chronic pain and depression.
A deep kiss triggers feelings of euphoria. And our immune system loves it, too: when we kiss, we swap our bodies’ own neurotransmitters and bacteria. That boosts the defences.
Crying brings us closer and cements social bonds. It’s a way to communicate: tears tell others we’re struggling and evoke empathy and care.
Laughing boosts circulation and helps prevent cardiovascular diseases. Blood pressure falls after we laugh. Great cardio – and no sweat.
Crying relaxes us: we breathe easier and our heart beat regulates itself. We can think clearly again and make better decisions.
When our bodies absorb sunlight, they produce more happiness hormones. Vitamin D is key. It regulates serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline. These neurotransmitters affect our mood.
During sleep, our body is highly active: cells renew themselves, muscles grow, and protein and new blood are created. Tension and emotional strain are also eased – and problems often go away, too.
Find out how you can live an active, healthy life in just a few easy steps – for more energy and well-being and less stress.
