LAUGH FOR TODAY

Laughter is a cure for many ills – depression, anxiety and can even make someone with a chronic disease, get well.  

Laughter is found among various animals, as well as in humans, although it is more rare in most mammals and animals overall. Among the human species, it is a part of human behavior regulated by the brain, helping humans clarify their intentions in social interaction and providing an emotional context to conversations. Laughter is used as a signal for being part of a group—it signals acceptance and positive interactions with others. Laughter is sometimes seen as contagious, and the laughter of one person can itself provoke laughter from others as a positive feedback. 

Children are known to laugh a great deal more than adults: an average baby laughs 300 times a day compared to an average adult, who laughs 20 times a day. According to some studies, the onset of adulthood causes a gradual change characterized by increased seriousness and a diminished engagement in laughter. 

So, here is your laugh for today!   Bookmark it and whenever you need a laugh, come back to this page. 

Enjoy!!
