Have you seen these funny quotes and pictures before? Just laugh out loud as read them.

It's time to laugh and release some stress. I was just wondering about on social media and I came across a few of these funny quotes and I laughed uncontrollably. So I went ahead to search for a good deal of them and to my surprise I really got a lot of them.

I bet you will be marveled after seeing them. Sometimes I wonder how people think and say such things. But all the same, we want to laugh out loud and that's it. Let's tighten our belts and get ready to laugh our gut out.

And make sure to get the end of this article, I have some good stuff there about the importance of laughter.

Let me tell you a few good things about laughter.

1. Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.

2. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.

3. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

4. Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

5. Laughter burns calories. Okay, so it’s no replacement for going to the gym, but one study found that laughing for 10 to 15 minutes a day can burn approximately 40 calories—which could be enough to lose three or four pounds over the course of a year.

6. Laughter lightens anger’s heavy load. Nothing diffuses anger and conflict faster than a shared laugh. Looking at the funny side can put problems into perspective and enable you to move on from confrontations without holding onto bitterness or resentment.

7. Laughter may even help you to live longer. A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don’t laugh as much. The difference was particularly notable for those battling cancer.

Thanks a lot for reading, see you in next article.
