Why laughter is the best medicine to life there is .

So like with most of my posts i love to start by defining for us the term at hand. Now when it came to laughter , I was tempted to say ,” Just open your mouth and laugh , now that’s laughter .” Funny , right? Yes but that’s laughter and i honestly feel it’s good enough an explanation . (Am already laughing at my self , for no particular reason, i don’t know if it’s because am acting childish, being unserious about a serious but rather humorous topic, or it’s because am letting you in on my crazy character and behind the scenes of this beautiful article.)

I honestly don’t know why am still laughing at this point but it’s okay. I guess am gonna be all cheery throughout my writing , as this is one of the topics am extra passionate about . It’s hard to write about laughter will keeping a straight face. Anyways let’s get to it.

Laughter is the act of making a sound with your mouth that shows you are happy or you find something funny.

Laugh through it all

I love to describe a good laugh as renewal for the soul. Life is a lot better when you laugh – i guarantee you. As a famous saying goes , if you can laugh at it, you can live with it.

As i was researching different questions people usually have about laughter, i came across these , ” WHY DO PEOPLE LAUGH ? ” and ” why should i laugh more often?” and i have to confess that the former struck me hard. Do people ask why others laugh like they do ? Anyway i had to come up with answers and here they are.

First i would like to emphasize that people laugh depending on the occasion . But all laughing sure begins in the mind. Whatever the reason, the outcome is someone bursting out laughing.

Sometimes you just need to loosen up at laugh at yourself.
  • During a comic performance or show , people will laugh because they find the jokes funny. Thou some may not laugh because they don’t find them funny and may sometimes even get angry as they find some jokes offensive. We are different and so are the things that make us happy.
  • During a public or social event, people will laugh with each other to show that they are on the same side, or they agree with whatever is being said. Sometimes they may not laugh, but they sure will give you or themselves a smile.
  • Occasionally i laugh at myself especially in the mirror , sometimes because am happy with myself, how am handling everything am going through , sometimes am dancing and i notice i suck at it and just burst out laughing.

Why do i laugh at everything?

Our reasons for laughing will always vary but to sum it up we laugh mostly because we find something funny , or because we are happy , and you don’t really need a reason to be happy . YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO BE HAPPY.

The reason you laugh at everything maybe one of two.

First, you are just a happy and free soul who finds beauty in life and connects with almost everything.

Second, you are sad deep down. You are struggling with something and the laughter is a sort of cover up.

Whatever your reason for laughing at everything, laughter is a powerful emotion, use it to your advantage.

And if you are sad deep down, if you are battling with something, find counselling and deal with that issue, don’t let it eat away your life and happiness.

Happiness is usually associated with feelings of love and affection and therefore we shall find that we laugh most when we are around people and things we love . It may be your children , loved ones, best friend, soulmate, family, friends, your dog, cat, pet , your house , and so much more .

We tend to laugh more when we are around the people we love.

Happiness on the other hand doesn’t start with a relationship, a degree , children, job or even money. It starts with your thoughts and what you tell yourself everyday. It all begins in the mind , but doesn’t end there . Your thoughts then go a long way in manifesting whatever is in your mind.

However much things like money, relationships don’t create happiness , they sure to add a lot to it .

The secret to being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of it everyday.


I guess that’s enough on the background factors leading to laughter. While experts are doing a lot of research on laughter , it sure doesn’t take an expert to realize how a good laugh lifts one’s mood.

Here’s why you should laugh more often .

Laughter is the best medicine .

  • Laughter attracts joy, releases negativity and tenseness from the body and leads to miraculous cures.

Laughter is the only medicine proven to cure even the most difficult , stubborn and incurable of diseases .( Check out the story of Catherine Godman on page 128 of The Secret book to learn more on how to heal yourself with laughter .)

  • I always tell myself that the most wasted day in my life the day i haven’t laughed. For as you laugh, you add value to your life, value in form of positivity , joy , gratitude and good energy.

If you gat nothing to laugh at, try laughing at yourself , everyone does every once in a while , it’s good for the soul.

You don’t need a reason to laugh .


  • Need to renew your mind, soul try laughing . Need to cheer up , a good laugh will be of much help.

Bothered by life’s uncertainties and challenges , try laughing . There’s nothing a good laugh can’t cure .

No matter the mood, a good laugh will do you a lot of good .

We don’t laugh because we’re happy , we’re happy because we laugh . ~William James

I never would have made it if i couldn’t have laughed . It lifted me momentarily out of a horrible situation, just enough to make it livable .

~ Victor frank

Research shows that we laugh more when we are around the people we love. People who make us feel at peace . Personally i have found that i laugh a lot especially around my best friend . We can literally laugh over anything , from a cartoon, funny sticker , we might even laugh at a bird passing by, that’s how bad it is. Even when there’s nothing to laugh at , old stories of the crazy things we did in high school, or previously keep us laughing.

The whole room may be quiet and all of a sudden she tells me something and all of a sudden we burst out laughing. Everyone needs such a friend in their lives. Someone who can bring humor to any situation no matter how bad.

An Irish proverb goes , ” A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cure in the doctor’s book .”

The only disadvantage i have found to laughter is it may make your tummy hurt a little if you over do it . And yes sometimes people won’t take you seriously , because they think your always kidding but well , i would rather be happy than gloomy.

Life all gives us options and life is all about choosing your hard. But i guess for once life gave us an unbalanced equation, like honestly , choosing between being sad and happy , i guess that’s one of the easiest choices to make .

At this point these words just came to my mind , DAMNED IF YOU DO AND DAMNED IF YOU DON’T .

The choice is yours alone to make .

Well i have put everything i could find useful about laughter in this article and i hope you found it useful . At least, i hope it made you laugh at one point , and if it did , then it totally worth all the time i put in. ( I wish i could put a smiling emoji here )
