On weekends or days off I like to get back my mojo with people who love to laugh as much as I do. Yes, I tend to avoid cranky complainers and prefer to hang more with comedians in my down time.
Years ago I discovered that to learn and practice humor benefits brainpower and rallies momentum? How so?
We can stoke aha moments when needed most.
Laughter lowers harmful stress – even through a fake smile
Even a smile, adds new zest for life!
Humor heals anxieties and erases fears.
Bust out a grin to boost moods!
Who’d have guessed that comedy amps up alertness!
Long term laughter improves our health and resilience!
It even helps us conquer grief or tackle trauma as a way to overcome loss. Perhaps even more importantly – a few hearty laughs on my days off prepares me for stressors that will likely pop up in the week ahead.
