Laughter is the best medicine
Laughter is the best medicine “they say”. They include the dour Sigmund Freud, who said a good joke is a defense against the absurdities in life. Even the yogis in India use laughter yoga to achieve a happier and higher state of mind. Nero-surgeons know that the brain’s plasticity is expanded by a chuckle, chortle, and cackle. So let’s laugh a little more.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
What makes a joke funny? Nobody really knows, but one thing is sure, if we knew the answer it wouldn’t be funny. Surprise is a good thing. It takes us off guard, releases tension, makes the smartest brainiac think he or she is not so smart after all.
And what do we learn? To laugh.
We all need to laugh. Right.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Laughter can increase your oxygen intake, which can in turn stimulate your heart, lungs, and muscles. Laughing further releases endorphins, the feel-good chemicals our bodies produce to make us feel happy and even relieve pain or stress. The act of increasing and then decreasing our heart rate and blood pressure through laughter is also ultimately calming and tension-relieving. Laughter can even boost our immune system response through the release of stress-and illness-reducing neuropeptides.”

“Wait a minute.”
