You probably already knew that laughing feels good, but did you know it has actual therapeutic benefits? According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter can help with relaxation by stimulating and then calming down stress hormones (2019). Laughter also stimulates circulation and helps improve immune function (Mayo Clinic, 2019). Laughter can also help to release the body’s natural pain relievers, help coping in times of increased stress, help you connect to others, and it just makes you feel happier (Mayo Clinic, 2019)!
You may be asking yourself, ‘How can I get more laughter in my life?’. Well, the answers are pretty simple. The internet has a lot of funny jokes and memes. I love to look at funny memes throughout the day to boost my mood and it is as easy as reaching for my phone! There are also several local comedy clubs in the area. It is also fun to spend time with people who make you laugh, the funnier the better! It is also good to share funny jokes with your friends and family, just make sure that the jokes are not hurtful to others.
We love to laugh here at Karas Health Care, so if you have a funny joke or meme feel free to share with us!
