From a health perspective laughter boosts your immune system, increases the oxygen to the body cells, improves blood circulation, and releases endorphins. This results in a decrease of colds and flu, cancer, heart attacks and strokes, and depression. At a business level laughter increases productivity and profit through improving resilience, teamwork, communication, and confidence. At the same time it reduces stress, sick leave, staff turnover, and sedentary behavior.
