Laugh - daily prescription from Sue

Last Update: June 06, 2016

Laughter has so many positive outcomes for us. It can help our immune system and build resistance to pain. Of course it can reduce stress, we know that, but it can iimprove the flexibility of our facial muscles.

4 and 5 year olds laugh around 400 times a day so why is it that adults only laugh on average 17 times?

Because laughing generates relaxation and draws our thoughts away from the negative emotions such as anger and guilt. It's so contagious, helps others, so have a think how you can begin a ripple effect of spreading a positive mood for friends and family around you.

There are no side effects and it's free so the daily dose of laughter is the script from me.

Hi Carol Yes I have that feeling too. I really did put too much emphasis on things that were not that important. Maybe our grandchildren benefit from our new way of thinking. Good wishes. Sue

My 4 year old told me I never laugh so ever since then I have been trying a lot harder for his sake as well as mine!
