World Laughter Day is an annual event that takes place on the first Sunday of May every year. It is celebrated worldwide to raise awareness about laughter and its many health benefits. Groups of people gather on this day to laugh together. It is scientifically proven that laughter can release stress. Laughing also improves cardiac health, relaxes your muscles, lowers blood pressure, and boosts the immune system. On this day you can try laughter yoga, which encourages prolonged voluntary laughter.
