Laughter – an emotional healer
The English say ‘A smile in the morning cheers up the whole day’. Try following this rule and you’ll be surprised to see how the world changes around you!
Laughter promotes the release of endorphins – hormones of happiness – which help people to get rid of sadness and irritation. Even short recollection of you laughing at something makes you feel happier. British scientists have proved that level of irritation decreases five times after people watch a comedy.
Moreover, people tested improved their mood just thinking that they would laugh soon – two days before watching a comedy (they knew they would watch it!) people got irritated twice as rarely than usual.
