When you hear or tell a joke you typically laugh, right? Okay, maybe not in those instances when the joke is cheesier than a four-cheese pizza. But most of the time we at least chuckle a tiny bit when we hear a joke. So, the reason why you should be telling jokes is because laughing just happens to be really good for you.
Laughing is good for you because...
- Laughter lowers blood pressure.
- Laughter relaxes the entire body.
- Laughter reduces stress hormone levels.
- Laughter triggers the release of endorphins.
- Laughter eases anxiety.
- Laughter improves your mood.
- Laughter just makes you feel good.
Let loose with your cheesiest jokes and watch the laughs and smiles fill the room. The world is a much better place when you share laughs and good times with others around you.
