The More We Laugh
It’s no joke, the more we laugh – the better we feel. And the good feeling we get from laughing remains with us even after the laughter subsides. Laughter is uniquely human and part of a universal vocabulary that’s recognized by all cultures. It’s a hidden language that we all speak. When we laugh with one another, it creates a positive bond that brings people closer together. That’s why it’s important to spend time with friends and acquaintances who make us laugh.
The ability to laugh not only makes life more enjoyable, it triggers healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens our immune system, boosts our energy, diminishes pain, and protects us from the damaging effects of stress. Humor and laughter helps to shift our perspective and allows us to perceive things in a more realistic way. With laughter, it’s far easier to maintain a positive outlook of the world around us, even during difficult times and disappointments. The more we laugh and incorporate humor into our daily routine, the more we improve all aspects of our lives.
