Get Tickled

How often do you laugh? Dr. Michael Titze, a German psychologist, tells us that in the 1950’s people used to laugh 18 minutes a day. Today we laugh less than 6 minutes a day. Children can laugh up to 400 times a day. Adults laugh less than 20 times a day, if at all.

Laughter is critical for your health. It dissolves distressing emotions, helps you relax and recharge, boosts the immune system and triggers the release of endorphins. Laughter promotes an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Strategies for bringing out the silly:
• Identify your tickle spot – do you fancy jokes, situational humor or comics? There are a whole variety of things that may strike your proverbial funny bone. Figure out what makes you laugh and add more of it to your life.
• Find a coconspirator – look for others who share your sense of humor. Laughter is contagious; the laugher of others is irresistible. Spend time around others who are skilled in humor that you enjoy and who love to laugh.
• Practice makes perfect – laugh more.
Today’s tip is intended to encourage you to increase laughter in your life. Incorporating more humor and laughter into your daily interactions will improve the quality of your love relationships, as well as your connections with co-workers, family members, and friends. Laughter improves your health and sense of well-being. Get tickled today!
