How amazing the world would be if there was just that little bit more laughter around, and there are some simple reasons why it's important to laugh more in your life that will have you reaching for your favourite comedy box-set in search of some of that much needed laughter therapy.

We've all been there, laughed so much that we've cried, or it's hurt...

or worse!

And don't you just love those moments?

I love it when my students laugh.

It's often unintentional and they're often laughing at me rather than with me but that's ok.

I don't mind.

I just like that they're laughing.

As my grandmother used to say, we're a long time dead and life's too short not to laugh a little more.

But there are also many health benefits and I would like to share why it's important to laugh more, in the hope of spreading a little bit more of it in the world.

1. Relaxation for the Nation

How many of you have been stressed and found that laughing has relieved the stress?

This is because laughter reduces the levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and dopamine, and much like your physical workout, it increases the levels of those feel good hormones, endorphins.

It also decreases pain and protects the heart by improving the function of the blood vessels and increasing the blood flow.

This can help protect against heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems.2

This is probably one of the most important reasons why it's important to laugh more in your life!
