In brief: Laughter and positivity

"laughter is the best medicine!" laughing is a positive emotion and therefore induces "good" chemicals.
Positivity helps the body heal faster, it helps rev up the immune system and it burns off negative chemicals. It is certainly something the doctor would advise you to do!
