Try laughing to keep from crying!
Humor is a powerful and overlooked tool for coping with today’s challenges.
We are all social beings. Our ability to connect with one another ensured our survival, from an evolutionary perspective.
Social isolation due to “stay-at-home orders” has resulted in many people feeling lonely and alone. This is especially hard for individuals with pre-existing mental health issues.
With technology we can try to “virtually” connect with one another. When we share, we feel accepted and connected to one another.
Numerous studies show the benefits of laughter in combating stress. Laughter reduces physical tension and stress by relaxing our muscles, as well as decreasing levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.
Humor seems to demonstrate how “happiness comes from within.”
Don't worry , Be happy and laugh a lot!!
