Ok. Ok. I can’t promise that a laugh a day will keep the doctor away.
However, according to the Mayo Clinic, laughter does have some benefits:
- Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs, and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.
- It activates and relieves your stress response.
- Laughter can also stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation, both of which can help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress
- Laughter can improve your immune system. Negative thoughts manifest into chemical reactions that can affect your body by bringing more stress into your system and decreasing your immunity. By contrast, positive thoughts can actually release neuropeptides that help fight stress and potentially more-serious illnesses.
- Laughter may also ease pain by causing the body to produce its own natural painkillers.
- Laughter can also improve your mood.
Snicker, giggle, or snort out loud!

You’ve probably heard about the mushroom that walked in a bar and the bar tender said, we don’t serve mushrooms here. To which the mushroom replied, ‘why not, I’m a fungi ‘😂
I’m happy to send the smiles, Miriam!! 🙂 Ha!Ha! I hadn’t heard that one. I’ve already told it to someone else. Thanks for sharing!!

The ones that makes you groan the loudest are always the best!! lol. Laughter definitely can make all the difference! xx
Hi Amy, As soon as I read your title, I thought about my husband. He has made me laugh every single day we have been together and he still does. I love this on many levels. It diffuses stress and mini disagreements. And it is nice to be around someone like this. I am embarrassed to say, I am often the “snorter” in the family. A fun post. Thank you for making me smile and laugh. I hope all is well. Take care.
That’s so awesome, Erica! My husband is definitely the comedian in our home! 😉 Once you make it to “snorting”, you know that you’re truly getting all the benefits of laughter. You can’t fake that level of amusement! 🙂 I’m glad the post made you smile. We are doing well and I hope that you are as well! xx
Lovely levity, Amy 😀
Sometimes a good laugh is needed. I hope you are well, Joey!! 🙂
These are all chuckle-worthy… But I have to say my favorite quote among them all was, “Laughter is carbonated holiness.” Amen to that! 😀
LOL! Carbonated holiness is a great term!!
These were wonderful! Thanks for the laugh!
I’m glad that you enjoyed them! 😊
Just what the doctor and myself ordered for breakfast this morning. A good laugh. Thanks for posting this.
I’m so glad that you enjoyed it! Laughter is great medicine! 😊
