To rejoice means to exhibit joy, to show forth your happiness. It is not a hidden thing. If it is in the heart, it will show forth on the face.
Nehemiah 2:2
Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid

Sorrow of the heart will manifest as sadness on the face. In like manner joy of the heart will show as happiness, laughter etc on the face.
In March 1992, a research shows that an average 4-years old laughs 400 times a day, while a typical adult laugh only 15-16 times.No wonder Jesus exhorted us to be as little children if we cherish God’s kingdom.

Joy is a weapon in the battle of life. Without joy in your heart, there is a limit to where you can get to.
Isaiah 12:3
Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

 All the entitlements in the kingdom are available only to the joyful; therefore don’t let anything steal your Joy.According to Nehemiah 8:10, your joy is your strength
Actually, medically speaking laughter releases a chemical substance called endorphin(s) that energises and act as a natural painkiller.

Again when you laugh you get more oxygen into your brain and this make you think more clearly.

Anytime you are sad, you don’t sit at home. Whenever you need joy come to the church. “For out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:3)
The Word will locate you in the church and it will generate joy (Ps.119:111)
