Sep 28, 2015 Marie Davis

You already know that laughing does wonders for you. You’ve felt it brighten your day, calm your mind and lift your mood to whole new heights, all thanks to an inside joke in the office, a hilarious comment from a kid, or a totally spontaneous mishap that makes you (and everyone around you) burst into peals of laughter. The kick it gives your mental health and emotions is awesome, but there’s something else we bet you haven’t considered yet: laughter’s physical benefits.

In the spirit of celebrating moments that make you laugh like you mean it, we’ve teamed up with Always® Discreet to look at all the ways your giggles, snorts and roars of laughter affect your body. Spoiler alert: It’s good for you, from your head to your toes. So laugh it up!
