What difference does it make when we have a good belly laugh anyway?
We have been told that laughter is the best medicine, but why is that?
Science shows us that within 90 seconds of laughing, our bodies begin to release a flood of chemicals and positive neurotransmitters that stimulate our brains, immune systems and nervous systems.
Here's the link between laughter and mental health:
- Laughter stops distressing emotions. You can't feel anxious, angry, or sad when you're laughing.
- Laughter helps you relax and recharge. It reduces stress and increases energy, enabling you to stay focused and accomplish more.
- Laughter shifts perspective, allowing you to see situations in a more realistic, less threatening light. A humorous perspective creates psychological distance, which can help you avoid feeling overwhelmed and can also diffuse conflict.
- Laughter draws you closer to others, which can have a profound effect on all aspects of your mental and emotional health.

If we want to stay healthy, we need to laugh more...not just a giggle, but good, deep, long belly laughs.
"When you laugh, you change and when you change the whole world changes around you." Dr. Kataria
Joyful employees are your 'go to people' for a reason. They are easier to work with and infect their environment with happiness. People who laugh cope with life much better, and tend to live in happier homes.
