Imagine if you were healthier just from a few extra chuckles a day. Here are some reasons to laugh more and how you can create the space in your life to incorporate some good ol’ belly laughs, giggles, and rip-roaring moments.
Physical health benefits of laughter
- Boosts immunity
- Lowers stress hormones
- Decreases pain
- Relaxes your muscles
- Prevents heart disease
Mental health benefits of laughter
- Adds joy and zest to life
- Eases anxiety and tension
- Relieves stress
- Improves mood
- Strengthens resilience
Social benefits of laughter
- Strengthens relationships
- Attracts others to you
- Enhances teamwork
- Helps defuse conflict
- Promotes group bonding
Beyond the health benefits of laughter, adding to our Social Wellness, laughter is a universal language.
What a wonderful way to communicate!
Now, when was the last time you laughed? Increasing your well-being by laughing more clearly has its perks physically, psychologically, and socially.
How can you increase your opportunities to laugh more?
- Decrease negativity in your life. Exposing yourself to negative talk, visuals or even the evening news can cause you to worry and stress more even after you have turned it off.
- Increase play. Playtime for adults, whether it be sports, hobbies, or doing something fun and exciting gives you the okay to forget about your problems.
- Increase positive people, information, and experiences in your life. This includes disengaging from phone calls and text messages from people who like to stir the pot. Hang out with your positive-minded friends and loved ones more.
- Socialize more. Get out there, make new friends, and get involved in conversations about things you enjoy.
- Attend Laughter Yoga or other workshops created to bring out the LOLs.
- Get silly! When was the last time you sang into your hairbrush? Had a bubblegum bubble-blowing contest? Let loose and get silly like when you were a kid.
