i do think that hapiness will surpass any feelings of pains and hurt. thus, it is said that laughter is the best medicine.... they say cancer cells multiply more rapidly when the person afflicted is feeling so much sorrow... and yes, when people are lonely, they feel all sorts of illnesses.

Hello,jonirei! Yes.Laughter is the best medicine.A good laugh is not omly enjoyable but also ensures better health.Laughter is a revitalising tonic that heightens and brightens our mood,gently relieving us of tension.benefits of laughter are many.(1)a belly laugh results in muscles relaxation.(2)humour allows a person to forget about pains such as aches and arthritis.humor draws attention away from the source of discomfort - at least momentarily.laughter causes production of endorphins,one of the body's natural pain killer.(3)laughter reduces tensions.laughter reduces hormones associated with stress response.laughter secretes two hormons in to the brain which are anti-stress chemicals associated with the feeling of happiness.(4)laughter enhances body's immune system.all negative emotions like anxiety,depression or anger weakens the immune systemof rthe body,thereby reducing its fighting capacity against infection.laughter helps to increase the count of natural killer Lymphocytes and also the antibody levels.as it is so much beneficial and available free of cost why should we not laugh daily at regular intervals to keep the body and mind fit.thank you.
