When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. It strengthens our immune system also. It boosts energy and protects us from the damaging effects of stress. This priceless medicine is fun free and easy to use. Taking the ideas from the unit ‘Health and Medicine’ together with your own ideas.

LAUGH! THE WORLD LAUGHS WITH YOU
Good Morning Everybody!
Revered Principal, worthy pedagogues and my dear friends. Today I have got a golden opportunity to deliberate upon the topic ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’.
Laughter is certainly the best medicine. It ensures a healthy and longer life. Researchers have found that people, healthy or harried, who often laugh out and see the funny side of sad situations, are far likely to have a heart attack than humourless individuals.
In fact, laughter is a panacea. It lowers blood pressure by increasing blood circulation. Laughing regulates our breathing resulting in a cleaning of lungs and strengthening body tissues. It boosts our immunity and strengthens relationships.
Life, these days is full of stress and anxiety. Anxiety causes high blood pressure which leads to heart attack. But laughing is a priceless medicine and is easy to use. It relieves stress and eases anxiety and fear by lowering the stress hormones.
It has been well said that life is not a bed of roses. It is a path of thorns. Life is full of trials and tribulations. Laughing whole-heartedly adds joy and zest to life. It enhances resilience. Laughter is strengthened relationships agent that makes us live longer and delays ageing. Moreover, a cheerful disposition strengthens relationships and defuses conflict. It promotes group bonding. So this free gift of nature should be used in abandon.
Thank you very much!
