Sigmund Freud also had the relief theory, in which he said that laughter helps release tension and may be a mechanism to bring sadness and anger. A recent study by researchers at the Medical Center of the University of Maryland has been suggested that there is a connection between laughter and good functioning of blood vessels – dilating and increasing blood flow.

Laughter also say, is something that makes exercising a little, some even call it inner jogging.
