019: Why Its Important To Laugh – Todd Stocker.com


a good laughToo many people take life too seriously. No matter what your situation, a good laugh can create a positive attitude which can change your life. Here’s how.


Show Notes:

We tend to grow out of our laughter. 

When was the last time you laughter – either a chuckle or a gut-wrenching laugh?

Benefits of laughter:

  • A hearty, gut-busting laugh can engage all 43 of your facial muscles (not to mention the gut you just busted)
  • Releases endorphins and other “happy chemicals”
  • Changes your attitude – general sense of well-being.
  • Positive effect on other people, when done at an appropriate time.
    • Not good when your in a meeting where the subject matter might be intense.  If you’re in contract negotiations, light humor might suffice. 
  • Laughter breaks down relational barriers
  • Sometimes you have to find ways to laugh.

Look for things that are funny.

On those dark days, where you’re just not feeling humorous,  even a fake laugh can afford you some of the benefits… it can actually even turn into a real laugh.

Try a little laughter.
