So it doesn't cost you anything to laugh; laughter is cheap and a potent medicine for us all.

According to healthline, below are 5 reasons why you need to laugh often:

When this chemical is released into your body, you will experience a sense of well-being and it can even make you temporarily forget any pain you might be having at the moment.

2. Laughter can help your blood vessels function properly, thereby increasing blood flow.

Improved blood flow implies that your heart is protected from heart attack and other cardiovascular issues.

3. Whenever you laugh, some molecules are released in the brain, and these molecules are designed to fight stress and diseases in the body.
