Laughing can help you relieve pain
Have you ever being in a situation where you laughed so much you forgot your pains? It’s likely it’d happened to you on several occasions but you did not pay attention to the fact that you are no longer in pain.
The fact is, laughing stimulates the body to release endorphins. These chemicals are the body’s natural pain killers or relievers.
So in certain instances, the release of endorphins as you laugh would help in the relief of body pains.
