Ha! Laughing is Good for You!


According to an article on Canadian Online Explorer, children laugh up to 25 times more per day than adults.  I think it’s about time we take that back!  To get started, check out some office humor and have yourself a chuckle.

Other interesting facts from the article:

  • Adults laugh, on average, 15 times per day compared to kids who laugh up to 400 times.
  • People who study laughter are called gelotologists.
  • The muscle relaxation that comes with laughter can last up to 45 minutes after the laughing has subsided.
  • Laughter may also lead to better memory as it speeds up the heartbeat and sends more blood to the brain.
