Multitasking on so many fronts can be enormously stressful. Stress, in turn, can contribute to a host of health problems.
“I don’t have time to just sit around and do nothing.” “I have to drop the kids off at school, get to work, come home and make dinner, get my son to football practice and then catch up on emails.” “I have way too much work on my plate right now.” “I don’t know when I’d fit this in. I’m taking care of my aging mother and working full time.”
Whether you’re laughing at the Saturday morning cartoons, listening to your favorite comedian or on the verge of tears from the office clown, a good laugh seems to do wonders for your mind and body.
Aside from improving your mood, bringing people closer together and making any activity more fun, research has shown that laughter has amazing health benefits. Ready. Set. Laugh!
