Don't be afraid to laugh at yourself: You'll live longer. This is great news for those of us that are constantly doing something crazy to laugh about. We didn't know we were improving our health as we were doing this.
How can we laugh at someone else if we can't laugh at ourselves? Let us look at the benefits of laughter and even the benefit of laughing at ourselves. Ask yourself is "laughter a good medicine"?
Being able to laugh seems to give a person more control over themselves as well as over the situation. A good laugh can release anger, fear, and stress. All of these can cause harm to the body over a period of time. We need to use the power of smiles and laughter to help heal as well as prevent bodily sickness.
Laughter is in fact, a good medicine. what say?
Research shows that just the expectation of watching a funny program or video lowered the level of stress, inducing chemicals in the blood and helped the release of stress relievers. It seems that laughter (and humor) may help to prevent heart attacks.
It is amazing how much research has been done, and is being done on laughter. We know that a happy, healthy person laughs more than others. Laughing is by choice. You can choose to laugh or you can choose not to.
Laughter is the best medicine available and the fact that it is free makes it even better.
Laughter connects us with others. Also, laughter is contagious, so if you bring more laughter into your life, you can most likely help others around you to laugh more, and realize these benefits as well.
By elevating the mood of those around you, you can reduce their stress levels, and perhaps improve the quality of social interaction you experience with them, reducing your stress level even more.
We need to adopt the "laughter Habit", as the best way to relieve our stressful life.
