Studies show that the amygdala and the hippocampus, two brain areas in the limbic system, are known to play a major role in laughter. The limbic system is a primitive part of the brain that regulates emotions . . . and helps us with basic functions necessary for survival.
Laughter is a signal that lets everyone know that you’re part of the group. Your laughter indicates positive interaction and acceptance.
When you joyfully laugh, it acknowledges the listener by setting an emotional tone for the conversation and further interactions and intentions. (This undoubtedly helped primitive humans survive back in the day.)
Further research proves laughter boosts your immune system. It’s also known to reduce stress and improve memory function.
When was the last time you had a good laugh? Laughter has a huge effect on creating a positive mental attitude and physical well-being. And a positive mental attitude and healthy body are crucial to achieving success! Additionally, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, Tapping) has the same positive effects and sends serotonin, a feel-good hormone to the amygdala.
