Laughter really is the best medicine; it reduces stress hormones and triggers the release of endorphins, the chemicals that make you feel good. It also lowers blood pressure and even increases circulation of antibodies that strengthen your body against infection. Laughter, humour and joy make life fun, so try to do a lot of it. Watch a funny movie, have a night out with friends, learn to laugh at your own flaws, listen to your favourite comedian, or read a collection of comics. Having a sense of humour is a great way to cope with adversity, and being able to re-frame negative events in a humorous way can help you focus on the brighter side. People with a good sense of humour tend to be healthier and less stressed out by life. When was the last time you really laughed? Do you have a memory that always makes you laugh when you think about it?
