Consider making humor a regular part of your daily living 🙂
Laughter always makes us feel lighter. And, as an extra bonus, laughter has important benefits that support our overall wellness. A few facts about laughter that research and science have shown us:
- Children laugh more than 400 times a day, whereas adults laugh only about a dozen times a day. Ok, adults. What would it look like if we upped our number?
- Laughter is like “inner jogging.” A good belly laugh gives every system of the body a workout.
- Physiologically, laughter is good for the brain, releasing feel-good neurohormones, such as endorphins and dopamine. How does it feel when you watch a movie that gives you a good belly laugh?
- Laughter is just the opposite of the stress response. It relieves tension, lowers stress hormones, improves neurochemistry, settles the heart, and boosts the immune system.
What story, joke or memory ALWAYS makes you laugh?
