Think of the last time you had a really, really good laugh. Proverbs 17:22 says a merry heart is good medicine.
Is this merely a “spoon full of sugar”, or is there actual scientific evidence to support this metaphor?
Why, yes! Otherwise this would be a very short article.
Recent research demonstrates that when we laugh, our immune system is strengthened, our mood is boosted, pain levels diminish, and stress levels decrease. 1
Sounds like good medicine to me!
