★ツ 10 things I’ve noticed about people who laugh a lot from my personal experience.
1) They don’t age quickly - they actually look younger than their age.
2) Attract a lot of positive energy. When we feel good, we emit a powerful frequency that attracts back more good things.
3) Don’t usually take things to heart. E.g If you offend them, they don’t keep Malice. They just let things go, no grudges. Easily forgive.
4) They will make you laugh even when you are sad. You just can’t help yourself. Sometimes, even when you have just had a good cry, when they come by, you’ll also have a very good laugh.
5) They are missed when they are not around. One day away from them would feel like one long week.
6) They are able to laugh at their mistakes and move on instead of being hard on themselves.As a teacher, if I write the wrong date on the white board in class and learners shout out to correct it. I smile and say “I was just checking you were all awake.”
7) Attract good opportunities first. They come to mind first. Example, for a nice new postion at work, or maybe someone has a holiday voucher / tickets they have no time to use. etc.
8) As they grow older, they have laughter lines – I don't call them wrinkles. (◕‿◕)
"Disease can not live in a body that’s in a healthy emotional state. Your body is casting off millions of cells every second and it’s also creating millions of new cells at the same time."
9) Tend to recover quickly from diseases. (Stress, bitterness, depression can actually make people develop tumours).
In the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. (The Chapter - The Secret to Health) Two people shared a story. They both had terminal diseases and one of the things they did was to watch very funny movies. Within months they were cured from their diseases. (They were Cathy Goodman and Norman Cousins). Our mind/thoughts are so powerful.
10. There is one negative thing. It's not easy to tell when people who laugh a lot are hurting inside, as they cover up the pain with their laughter. So, we need to be very observant. Some people laugh a lot on the outside, but cry on the inside.
Overall, you can see that Laughter is definitely good for you! ٩(•̮̮̃•̃)۶

I agree about people who laugh from a place of joy....In my office, we have a manager who is charming, warm, caring and laughs effortlessly. He is a pleasure to have around. Then there are two girls, here giggling all the time. They lend the impression that they can't take anything seriously, are unfocused, and so busy laughing, being clowns....they come across as immature and a huge detriment at work. Of course they have enlisted other women into a clique who giggle and cluck like a gaggle of hens, being incompetent at work, while those who are serious and focused, and not laughing randomly over stupidity are sidelined...Hey, they can get over illnesses easier while they give us ulcers....We do the work while they cost and get paid for showing up. We serve the clients while they get a free ride. Sometimes incessant laughing = stupidity, lack of gravitas, scattered energy, incompetence. Just saying.
Natalie on January 31, 2018:
I really needed to read about laughing because lately I have been depressed and been laughing a lot!! This brought more clarity to that.
Karen A Szklany from New England on October 10, 2017:
Loved re-reading this article. Reflecting on it again, I realize that my life has had this cycle where I laughed quite a lot as a kid, then became super-serious and didn't laugh very much, and now I am back to laughing again. Perhaps turning 50 several years ago helped loosen me up again. ~:0)
Reginald Thomas from Connecticut on October 06, 2017:
Thank you for that.It didn’t make me laugh, but did confirm my beliefs. Good job!
Elena (author) from London, UK on November 01, 2015:

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on October 28, 2015:
I love the idea of calling wrinkles laughter lines:). No need for botox. Also, No. 10 is very true. Wonderful article.

Linda Chechar from Arizona on June 28, 2015:
Great Hub, Lady_E! Nothing better for the soul than a good, hearty laugh. This is a great reminder to do it often and with gusto! Thanks!
Julie K Henderson on May 26, 2015:
You are welcome.
Elena (author) from London, UK on May 26, 2015:
@Julie Thank you. There is never a dull moment with such a friend around.
@Favored Thank you. It truly is good medicine. Brings out the best in the body.
Fay Favored from USA on May 15, 2015:
I agree with your list. Laughter gets me through the day. There isn't a day that my husband and I don't laugh. Like the Bible says, laughter does good like a medicine.
Julie K Henderson on May 09, 2015:
I agree with all your observations. I love it when people can make me laugh. I've one friend I virtually never fail to laugh with when we are together, and she is very special to me for this and other reasons. Well done.
Elena (author) from London, UK on September 12, 2014:
@mdscoggins Thanks so much for stopping by. Keep smiling. :-)
@fpherj48 Thanks for sharing your beautiful story.
Sweet memories. :-) Best wishes.

Simo from London on August 03, 2014:
Hello, I can recognize me in lot of points. I smile and laught a lot also if I cry inside...I think is both a good and bad thing! This article is so true and lovely, I agree to everything and it make me smile :)!
Suzie from Carson City on July 29, 2014:
Lady E....Very timely that this hub of yours has shown up in my thread today......Just this past Sat & Sun, I had 2 family reunions.....my maternal side and then my paternal side. They were both one laugh fest after another. I'm telling you, people from outside our family, we're pretty sure, think we are a gang of air heads......and please understand we couldn't care less about that.
We feel no need to explain that in fact, we are all sane, well-educated, proper when necessary......but we KNOW how and when to have fun.
The thing is.....for the first half of our lives we loved to laugh and be happy and now.....we reminisce about all those past good times and laugh even harder.
We've had more than our share of sorrows, hurdles and trauma.....those times cannot be avoided. The way we see it I guess, that's all the more reason to embrace our share of FUN...
At the close of the reunion from my mother's side of the family.....we all went down to the beach and formed a circle......we read off the list of all of our departed & much loved family members......and sent off a Japanese Lantern into the sky........hugged and kissed one another Good-Bye while smiling and wiping away tears.
That's what I call wonderful memories..........
Michelle Scoggins from Fresno, CA on July 29, 2014:
Hi Lady E. Laughter is great, I try to indulge whenever possible. I find that it does help to not hold grudges and see the light side of things. Thanks. Voted up
Elena (author) from London, UK on May 10, 2014:
@georgescf - Thanks. I am glad you enjoyed it.
@fpjher48 - Thanks for your lovely comment. Wow.... a home of laughter. I like that you can identify with the Hub too. Cheers.
Suzie from Carson City on May 08, 2014:
Lady....Powerful! I couldn't agree more! I grew up in a home of laughter......our Dad being a born comedian. My sister and I could make each other laugh like no one else......and we both have adult children who have inherited the laughter gene.
Your points are so accurate.....I know, because I live my life this way as well.
There is plenty of time and enough circumstances that can cause us sadness and tears. They come in life....without invitation. So we feel the pain and get through the trials and sorrow.....holding on to those we love.
When the darkness fades and life must go on......we cannot allow grief to consume us and steal precious moments that remain.
Happiness, smiles, love and laughter......better than any medicine or a dozen kinds of therapy!!!!....UP+++ tweeted & pinned.
georgescifo from India on May 08, 2014:
really a great hub point some valuable information. I also agree with the fact and laughing can really keep you going healthy and happy.
Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on March 23, 2014:
Great hub and so true about the person being missed from the group and laughing makes me feel great.
Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on February 11, 2014:
What an awesome Hub. This sure gives meaning to "laughter is the best medicine. " Thanks!
Nell from Netherlands on February 11, 2014:
Ooops now that's just me ! :)
I am 19 but my friends they don't even recognize me after a holiday break. lol ! :D
Audrey Howitt from California on February 10, 2014:
I find your observations to be true--and yes, people who laugh often don't show their pain--
Alen Ostovic on February 01, 2014:
I laugh a lot, I have no idea if it feels good or bad, cause I laugh all the time... even when it's not funny hahaha (you see what I'm talking about).
Ben Blackwell on January 09, 2014:
This is a pretty cool article. It's good that you put rule #10 in there as well as a sort of reminder.

Thanks a lot for your kind comment.
sagar nandwani on October 27, 2013:
I love your sense of humour .. i wish i could inject jokes into my posts too but my niche just doesn't cut it ..
Elena (author) from London, UK on June 29, 2013:
Thanks Marie. It really does need to be nurtured and brings people together, breaking any ice. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Keep smiling. :-)
Marie Ryan from Andalusia, Spain on June 25, 2013:
I loved this article about laughter and really subscribe to it......even as I was reading it, it was putting a smile on my face. I hope to be a person that laughs a lot.
I often watch old style comedy programmes on T.V. and really enjoy watching all the family join in with a great guffaw!
I think laughter can really bring us together. A sense of humour is a great thing and needs to be nurtured and developed. Perhaps if you stop laughing you get out of practice!
Thanks for making me think about this!
Elena (author) from London, UK on June 12, 2013:

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 04, 2013:
@Superfly - I totally agree with you. Laughter does make you take life lightly (easy going) as you noted.
Thanks for stopping. Keep happy.
David McKenzie from Canada on March 24, 2013:
Youth laugh a lot more than adults do. If adults laughs a lot it can make them look younger as adults subconsciously associate lots of laughter with being young.
Laughter is good for stress relief and people who laugh a lot tend to be easy going so they accumulate less stress than the average person.
These are two possible explanations for why people who laugh a lot tend to look younger.
Elena (author) from London, UK on March 20, 2013:

HLPhoenix on February 27, 2013:
One of my favorite topics... how a good laugh can keep you going, no matter what is going on around you. It is so true that those who laugh a lot are those one wants to be around most... and every one of your points rang true to me. I loved this Hub, voted up and sharing.
Elena (author) from London, UK on February 27, 2013:

@LoveDoctor..... See, that's why your name is Love Doctor. :-)
I'm so glad you understand and I always wonder why many people with hearts of gold go through so much pain. Anyway, so lovely of you to stop by. Wishing you lots of smiles. Thanks
@CrisSp - Aaawh ... thanks for taking time to open it on Facebook and big thanks to Rasta1 too for sharing. May life give you lots to smile about.
CrisSp from Sky Is The Limit Adventure on February 21, 2013:
I love this hub! Thanks to rasta1 for sharing it on FB. Laughter indeed is the best medicine and nothing beats it.
I like the energy here. Great hub!
lovedoctor926 on February 21, 2013:
You make very good points. It's true, laughter does attract positive energy and people seem to want to be around you more. It's also true that those who tend to laugh a lot may be trying to disguise their pain and I also agree with the quote about the kindest hearts are usually those that have suffered pain
Elena (author) from London, UK on February 21, 2013:
@rasta1 - Good medicine for your health. Thanks. :-)
@Nell Rose - It's nice when you have days like that in the office. You actually look forward to going to work everyday. Thanks. :-)
Nell Rose from England on February 19, 2013:
Love this! I remember laughing so hard with my two friends that we used to have to walk away and hide! haha! that office picture was similar to what it was like in our office, constant hysterics! still miss it now!
Marvin Parke from Jamaica on February 19, 2013:
I laugh a lot, so I like this.

@MissJamie - Thanks again. That's so lovely. If only everyone could be like that. :-)
@Dan Barfield - That's beautiful. I love it when Adults have fun like kids and laugh so much like them. It keeps you happy, young and attracts good karma too. You're gonna marry a beautiful Angel. Best Wishes.
Dan Barfield from Gloucestershire, England, UK on February 19, 2013:
What a fantastically positive article!! Love it!! I have the honour of being engaged to one of the funniest people I've ever come across. We spend half our time giggling like kids :)
I have also noticed the effect she has on other people and it makes me so proud it hurts. Whenever she walks into a room, you can see the smiles breaking out everywhere. She is a ray of positive energy that lightens hearts and minds.
MissJamieD from Minnes-O-ta on February 18, 2013:
You're right Lady E. People often ask me how I can get over things so quickly. I've always been like that. Sometimes to a fault. But I don't want to waste a minute of my short life on this earth, using my energies that should be used for happiness. I forgive quickly and easily because that's what I expect from others if I make a trivial mistake.
Elena (author) from London, UK on February 18, 2013:
@Michael - Thanks so much. May life give you more to laugh about.
@FastFreta - Hello, I am glad you enjoyed it. Good to see you again.
@Miss Jamie - Thanks. It's nice that you radiate sunshine and of course we all have our days, but I'm sure you snap out of a "cloudy day" quickly.... and don't stay there all day. :-)
MissJamieD from Minnes-O-ta on February 18, 2013:
I'm not saying this in a boastful manner whatsoever because I dislike bragging, but I live my life this way. Good job on this hub, you are so right!! I fall into nearly every one of the categories above. Although I can't speak for every category because I am not sure that I'm the first person someone thinks of for a job position, but the rest I relate to. I love to laugh, If I'm in a bad mood I watch stand-up comedians just so that I laugh. I'm almost always happy in life and I portray that in public. People like to be around me for the most part because I'm positive and happy. Don't get me wrong I have my days, but I try to be happy and positive. After all, you only live once:)
Alfreta Sailor from Southern California on February 18, 2013:
Loved it. You are so right on all points. I can identify with most of them, especially #6. Very good and upbuilding hub. Vote up, awesome and interesting.
Michael John Mele from Seffner, Florida on February 17, 2013:
Great hub...and you are so right...laughing is great for the soul. I try to laugh as often as possible...it just makes you feel good.
Elena (author) from London, UK on February 16, 2013:
@mayaana Thanks so much. Sorry for the late response. It didn't indicate a comment was waiting. Keep smiling....
@Bingskee Oh... keep laughing. As you noted, it's therapy. I don't take myself seriously and laugh at myself too. Thanks for stopping.
bingskee from Quezon City, Philippines on February 08, 2013:
Hi, Lady_E! laughter is a therapy to me though it's a challenge to laugh at your own mistakes.
A friend jested: It's okay to laugh a lot but avoid laughing alone because people might mistake you as crazy. :D
Maya Anna from U S on December 31, 2012:
Laughing is one of the best deed of this world because in this stress world no one can laugh ar more time ... that's why i like your post,,,

Hello Shiningirisheyes - That's nice to know. Those lines give a natural, lovely look. I'm glad you stopped by. Thanks.
Shining Irish Eyes from Upstate, New York on November 08, 2012:
Ahhhh - a good laugh - it's my favorite pass time.
Just recently a few friends and I were discussing our thoughts on plastic surgery. Although there are far too many places on me that even a plastic surgeon can't help, the one characteristic I wouldn't change are the laugh lines around the corners of my eyes.
Elena (author) from London, UK on November 05, 2012:
Aaawh... thanks HoneyBB. I appreciate that.

Fierce Manson from Atlanta on October 26, 2012:
Lady_E awesome hub! I love to laugh, and I really enjoy making everyone else around me laugh. Thanks so much for sharing the benefits of something that really come natural for me. My family say I am just to much because I keep 'em laughing. Now I really have the information I did not have before on why laughing will keep younger, love that benefit.
Keep writing Lady E, thanks for sharing with the HP community!

Alma Cabase from Philippines on October 25, 2012:
Want to read something to laugh about? Early this morning, my mother rushed to wake me up saying she won a million dollars! Of course I was totally shocked. She then got my hand, led me to the computer and pointed on an ad. I can't stop laughing. I love my mom but moments like that never fail to give me a laugh. Well, she laughed with me after knowing all about it.
This hub is really great and inspiring!
Good day and God bless!
Kalpana Iyer from India on October 25, 2012:
Loved going through this! I personally like being around people who are positive and who laugh a lot. It's irritating when people whine about anything and everything and I try to stay away from such people as far as possible. Personally, I have a very scary laugh so I am not sure whether I freak out people or give them a positive vibe!
anglnwu on October 25, 2012:
Laughing on the outside, crying on the inside--that will be me--haha. Great observations and I agree, laughter makes everything better. Shared 'cos it's so darn good.

@PagesVoice - Hello Dennis, I enjoyed reading your comment and will share the words of that TV Hostess with kids I teach. So Beautiful. It's even better for kids to have the habit and take it into adulthood. (so many Teens live in depression these days)
Lovely of you to stop by. Thanks and Best Wishes.
Dennis L. Page from New York/Pennsylvania border on September 28, 2012:
Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting. I am happy to report that I am a proud smiler and someone who laughs many times throughout the day. My wife tells everyone that having me around has her waking up to laughter and going to bed still laughing. I think it is better to laugh than cry and I really do practice what I preach. "The Secret" is on the end table by my chair and I refer to it often. I'm reminded of a local kids TV show when I was a child. The hostess would always start with, "Remember, a smile is the magic key to the wonderful Magic Toy Shop." If more of us could just look at life as a magic toy shop and smile more this would certainly be a better world.
Elena (author) from London, UK on September 24, 2012:

@PaulGC - It truly is Paul and I know you have a lot of laughter Genes because I always have something to smile/laugh about when reading your Hubs or Comments. :-)
@MamaKim - We could but sometimes when life is tough, we need someone to remind us to still find time to laugh. Good to see you... thanks.
@flashmakeit - Aaaawh... that's so nice to know that it makes you forget your worries. Keep happy, lovely lady.

@jainismus Me too. Why keep a straight face all the time. :-)
@Jennzie - It really is the best medicine. After reading the science of how it works in the body, hopefully people will appreciate it more and laugh more. I only read those stories of Miraculous Cures in "The Secret" this month. Cheers. :-)
flashmakeit from usa on September 17, 2012:
