Laughter improves self-image, memory and heart health

Psychologically speaking, there are many things that can impact how you feel emotionally and physically. Ever think about how laughter makes you feel?

Having a good laugh feels good, doesn’t it? Over the years, you may have heard that laughing a few minutes a day helps improve work relationships and the overall interactions in the workplace.

New research is indicating laughter may be directly linked to relieving stress, improving your memory and heart health, and, of course, making you feel better emotionally, or changing your mood into a more positive one.

In turn, what happens when you are in a positive mood? You may be more inclined to make good decisions, feel better about yourself, and perhaps even see your relationships in a better light.

Matthew Clark of the Clark Institute shares:

“When we laugh, it triggers certain areas of our brain and then the neurons fired throughout our brain trigger other areas,”

“Even though it may stimulate your emotional part of your brain, it also will stimulate your frontal lobe area,”

He adds, “making it so you think more logically think more positively throughout the day, make better decisions.”

“People that we feel similar to we think are more funny,”

“When somebody makes us laugh, we also find them more attractive. In men, especially, if somebody laughs at their jokes they find them especially appealing or especially attractive.”

It’s interesting to see that laughter may be strong enough to influence a man’s self-image. You get a burst of energy and a sense of pride when someone finds humor in what you say, if that was your intention. You will also feel more confident, as Clark explains, in turn making sound decisions in the home and hopefully in your workplace.
