...but the Bible says that Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (KJV)

22 Being cheerful keeps you healthy. (Good News)
22 A happy heart is a healing medicine … (Smith-Goodspeed)
22 A glad heart makes a healthy body … (Basic English)
22 A glad heart helps and heals … (Moffatt)
22 A glad heart is excellent medicine, a spirit depressed wastes the bones away. (Jerusalem)
22 A cheerful heart makes a quick recovery; it is crushed spirits that waste a man’s frame. (Knox)
22 The best medicine is a cheerful heart … (Fenton)
22 A joyful heart worketh an excellent cure … (Rotherham)
22 … a broken spirit makes one sick. (Living Bible)
:D

Laughing burns calories. So does breathing. And thinking. But because it's more physical, it makes sense that laughing is more calorie-intensive than just sitting around.

Plus it makes you feel good! Don't know how many calories it burns, but I plan to keep doing it for a very long time.
