Laughter is the best

Laughter is the best medicine – and there’s hard science behind the expression.

When we laugh, endorphins – our happy hormones – lift our mood in a similar way to what we experience after exercise. 

In 1995, a Mumbai-based medic created his own Laughter Club. He gathered a small group to exchange jokes and funny stories. Eventually, they ran out of stories, but laughing alone was enough for patients to reap the benefits.

This developed into a technique called laughter yoga.
