The Power of Laughing Out Loud “A merry heart doeth good like medicine”

Hello Ladies,


Today I want to share with you the thought about laughter. I know you may say “I don’t have anything in my life to laugh about.” Believe me, I get it. At one time in my life, I felt the same way. Especially when we look at society and see everything that's going on, that alone is enough to make someone depressed and disheartened. Some of you may look at your current situation and listen to the negative chatter going on in your head and feel defeated in life. I have been there too. But please understand laughter is a universal language that has an amazing ability to brighten the darkest of days, bring people together, and even ease tensions. It is a natural response to humor and joy, with amazing benefits. In fact, laughing out loud profoundly impacts our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Here are some of the benefits of laughter and why the Bible says it is good like medicine.

Reduces Stress and Boosts Immunity

When we laugh, our bodies release endorphins, commonly known as "feel-good" hormones, which instantly elevate our mood and reduce stress levels. It relaxes our muscles, relieves tension, and promotes a sense of calmness. Additionally, studies have shown that laughter also strengthens the immune system, increasing the production of antibodies and activating immune cells. So, ladies the more we laugh, the better equipped our bodies become to fight off illnesses and infections.

Enhances Mental Health

Laughter remarkably impacts our mental health, acting as a powerful antidote to anxiety, depression, and negative emotions. It helps shift our focus from worry and sadness to joy and happiness. Laughing stimulates the production of serotonin and dopamine, the neurotransmitters responsible for regulating mood and promoting a sense of well-being. Incorporating laughter into our lives can lead to improved mental resilience and a greater ability to cope with life’s challenges.


Strengthens Relationships

Laughter has an extraordinary ability to build connections and strengthen bonds between people. Sharing a genuine laugh with others creates a positive and joyful atmosphere, fostering a sense of camaraderie and belonging. Laughter also helps to diffuse conflicts, reduce tension, and increase trust. We create a solid foundation built on shared joy and mutual understanding by encouraging laughter within our relationships. I believe laughter is vitally important especially for those who live in the same household in a family setting.

Enhances Creativity and Productivity

We enter a state of relaxation and heightened mental clarity when we laugh. This mental state enhances our creativity and improves our problem-solving skills. Laughing stimulates the brain, leading to improved cognitive function and the making of fresh ideas. Incorporating laughter into our work environment can foster a positive atmosphere, increase employee morale, and boost overall productivity.

Promotes Physical Health

The physical benefits of laughter are numerous. It increases blood flow, which improves cardiovascular health and lowers blood pressure. Laughter also exercises our facial muscles, giving us a natural facelift and promoting a youthful appearance. Moreover, it aids digestion by stimulating the production of digestive enzymes and reducing the risk of gastrointestinal disorders. By laughing regularly, we can improve our overall physical well-being and enjoy a healthier life.


Laughter is a gift from God that we all possess. So, let's embrace joy, find something in your life to laugh about every day, and let laughter be our guide to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Remember ladies, laughter is contagious, so spread the cheer and make the world a better place, one healthy and hearty laugh at a time!


Love and Blessings,

Dr. Doris
