Sense Of Humor

 

Humor encompasses any human communication which makes people laugh or feel happy.

It is the ability or quality of people, objects or situations to summon feelings of amusement in other people.

Who doesn't enjoy a great laugh whenever possible?

Laughter is a great healer and one of the most positive and rejuvenating human emotions.

 Not only does it strengthen our immune system, it releases beneficial hormones that refresh and revitalize us, calm our nerves, reduce tension and stimulate creativity.

Many researchers including Drs. Lee Berk and Stanley Tan have studied the therapeutic benefits of laughter and humor.

They have published studies that show that laughing:

  • lowers blood pressure
  • reduces stress hormones, such as epinephrine and cortisol which constrict blood vessels
  • improves cardiovascular health by increasing the body's ability to use oxygen
  • reduces anxiety, relaxes muscles
  • strengthens the immune system
  • releases endorphins, the body's natural painkillers

Apart from the significant medical benefits of laughter, all of us enjoy having a good laugh and we enjoy being around people who make us laugh.

People who can laugh at themselves or at their situation are usually more resilient when problems arise. Because they are able to see the lighter side of a difficulty, they are better able to put it in perspective.

Laughter can release negative tensions both physically and psychologically. It is a wonderful natural sedative.
