Laughter

This seems like an obvious way to find happiness… but do you know why it changes your mood so quickly? Because laughter is the best medicine ;-) Do you realize that we are the only species on the planet that uses laughter? It usually involves 15 different facial muscles when we laugh. When you think about it… it’s not as easy as we sometimes think.

What’s the science behind laughter?

The deep breathing (from your stomach) triggers the Epiglottis which releases the calming juices in your body which cause you to relax and to be happy. There are other ways to trigger this through deep breathing techniques, but that’s difficult to describe in this short article. But laughter creates the same effect and we love that here!

There are entire industries based around laughter. Brian Regan, Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Engvall are some of our favorites around the office. We even use them as our hold music. Some people are even disappointed when we pick up the phone after they’ve heard a few classic comedians. So if you’re feeling down, give us a call and we’ll put you on hold :-)
