A Brain on Laughter

      Comments Off on A Brain on Laughter

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? Did you know that to laugh at yourself is to laugh away stress?

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.

Did you know children laugh 300 to 400 times a day, compared to 17 times adults laugh?

What’s your take on humor and its brain benefits this weekend?
