Everyone’s heard the old adage that laughter is the best medicine, but how? Can laughter really make you better?
In this article, together we’re going to explore the healing power of laughter and positivity.
1) Laughter keeps you positive
Have you ever tried being negative while laughing? It’s nearly impossible! Laughing and keeping a good sense of humor can help you stay positive and positive thinking is the power to success, health, and happiness.
By continuously laughing and keeping yourself in a good humor, you’ll have a better time of remaining positive. This is more than a cosmetic positivity, too. You’re not just smiling and laughing on the outside, you’re smiling and laughing on the inside. This helps you truly internalize your positivity and positive thinking and help it stick around.
2) Laughter improves your mood
Laughter keeps you happy. A good sense of humor helps to elevate your mood to new heights, keeping you positive and happy. When you find a way to laugh at most things and keep a good sense of humor about you, you keep yourself in a happy mood more frequently.
When you laugh a lot, it’s harder for you to focus on the negative. Plus, there’s not much room in your happiness for sadness, anger, or stress to wiggle their way in. Laughter also diffuses tension, so if any of those negative emotions do work their way in, you can diffuse them before they set in.
3) Laughter is contagious
The more you laugh, the more it passes around. Those around you won’t be able to contain themselves with you laughing around. This spreads happiness, making everyone better. The more laughter spread around, the more elevated the mood of the group and the room and the better everyone is.
We’ve all heard that misery loves company, but so does joy. The contagious nature of laughter will help keep negativity and misery far away from you. The more jovial in nature you are, the happier you’ll be and the happier you’ll make those around you.
4) Laughter keeps friends around
Everyone loves a person with a good sense of humor. If you keep laughing and keeping the mood light, people are going to want to be around you. This keeps friends around and attracts new friends to join your group. When you make them laugh and realize that your senses of humor align, you’ll develop a friendship.
Friendship is the key to happiness, health, and success. Humans are social creatures that need to have camaraderie and friendship; we need to feel like we belong somewhere with someone. Laughter can help bring those likeminded people to you and boost your camaraderie.
5) Laughter brings joy
Laughter brings joy into your life and heart and the lives and hearts of those around you. A good sense of humor and regular laughter can help bring true, rich joy into your life. Your laughter will make you happy and those around you happy, which in turn brings you even more happiness.
The more you laugh, the happier you’ll be and the lighter your heart will feel. Laughter makes everything better. It has the power to make battling both physical and mental illnesses easier. Keep laughter around and see what joy it can bring you.
Laughter is the best medicine; it brings joy and happiness, connects people and grows friendships, and heals the soul. Find a way to bring laughter in your life, share it with others, and keep it around. You’ll be far happier and healthier once you do. Keep laughter in your life and watch as it improves everything in your life.
