Laughter is the best medicine

Small Boys Laughing

Laughter is infectious. Stand next to someone laughing hard and it doesn't take long to catch on. Laughing is not only something we like to do, but something we should do. Here are just a few reasons to laugh more…

Laughter relaxes the body: Ever wondered why you feel so calm after a good laugh? Laughter helps relieve physical tension and stress, and can leave all the muscles in your body relaxed for up to 45 minutes.

Laughter strengthens your immunity: Laughter builds up your immune system and infection-fighting antibodies, allowing your body to be better prepared to fight disease.

Laughter makes you feel good: When you laugh, it triggers the release of endorphins which are the body's natural feel-good chemicals. Along with making you feel better, endorphins are even known to help reduce pain.

Laughter protects your heart: A long laugh can improve the function of your blood vessels and increase blood flow to and from the heart. Just another great reason to have a good, hearty laugh!

So next time you feel yourself starting to frown, remember all these health benefits and turn that frown upside-down! If your teeth are making you feel self-conscious about your smile, or you just want to check that your smile is still in top shape, Contact Fabdental today.
