They say laughter is contagious. The more you laugh, better are the chances of you contributing a bit to make world a better place. We all have problems and tension but a bit of laughter and sharing some light moments can greatly reduce our pain. Medical science proved that laughing helps you to fight off illnesses by boosting your immune system. Laughter can relieve stress, strengthen your immune system and diminish pain.
