“Humor leads to social bonding due to shared positive emotions and the discharge of negative ones.” Nicole Fuentes quoted from Blue Zones newsletter
Yesterday I had the rare treat of spending the day with my daughter Katie and her family. Much of the day it was just the two of us hanging out while the kids were in school. We are both talkers and have a never-ending conversation punctuated with lots of loud laughter. While talking, we were making Christmas ornaments for her Etsy business Tuscanycreative. What a fun day!
I’ve read that people who laugh alot tend to be more extroverted, have higher levels of self-esteem, and lower levels of depression. Laughter is also good for your health…lowering your stress levels and releasing beneficial hormones. I took a Laughter Vitamin yesterday and it felt really good.
Affirmation: Laughter makes me feel good, I feel good because I laugh.
