Short-term benefits of a good laugh include the stimulation of many organs like the heart, lungs and muscles, relieving the body's stress response and soothing tension. Long-term health benefits of laughter are a strengthened immune system, improved mood, increase in personal satisfaction and pain relief. 

Sleep is also important for those who want to live a long life. The National Health Institute reported that sleep plays a vital role in overall good health and well-being. A good night's rest will help protect your client's mental and physical health as well as their quality of life and safety.
