They say that laughter is “the best medicine,” and as it turns out, there is some scientific truth to this assertion. Humor-associated laughter has numerous health benefits, for your mind and your body.
There are more than a few studies that show a reduction of blood pressure after laughter, such as a 2017 study in the Journal of Medical Research, where 40 patients undergoing hemodialysis listened to CDs of comic shows for 16 30-minute sessions over eight weeks, and saw a decrease in blood pressure.
Great day, hope, laughs, health and prosperity for all! You can make it happen if you just try once more, and then a little more, once step at a time if you are tired (but do not give up). If you are full of energy: GO FOR IT GIRL/MAN!
Have you ever noticed that feeling of well-being after a good laugh? I have. I try to feel that way everyday. Sometimes when I’m riding my bike alone I make myself laugh remembering funny situations I might have experienced in the past. I laugh out loud, another cyclist might pass me by and notices I am having a good time. He laughs too and smiles. This happens pretty often, and I like it when people around me are happy too. It’s just right!
“Laughter is the best medicine” quote has a lot of truth in it! Laughter certainly brings joy to our lives, improves cardiac health, lowers stress hormones, triggers the release of endorphins, and lots more, making us happier and thus healthier!

These days, it’s become known as one of scariest haunted hospitals in America—as well as one of the most haunted places in the country. Ghost hunters regularly report seeing shadow people, hearing disembodied voices, seeing objects move by themselves, and also seeing the ghost of a little girl who runs on the second floor.
Beechworth Lunatic Asylum—Beechworth, Australia
Many people who go to Beechworth claim to feel a sense of dread in the shock therapy hall—or even feel poked by those ghostly residents of the haunted asylum.
However, there’s also a very sad side to this haunted asylum. Adults were not the only residents here, which is why many people claim to hear the sounds of children playing around the area. In fact, it’s not so uncommon for child visitors to be seen talking to invisible people—then claiming they were talking to boys who “lived there.”
Rolling Hills Asylum—Bethany, New York
Considering that the insane were treated brutally during the 19th century, it’s unsurprising that many potentially sane people who were admitted ended up going crazy. Patients here were known to undergo torturous treatments and also be left barely clothed in the middle of winter.
