Find Out How Laughing Keeps your Stress Under Control

Learn how to keep your stress in check with laughter!

Stress is inevitable; it’s a normal part of life, especially in the workplace. With projects, deadlines, meetings and maintaining office dynamics, it’s easy for work to become a cesspool for stress. However, too much stress is detrimental to your health. It can cause serious health complications such as heart disease, obesity, sleep deprivation, anxiety, and depression. While there are many ways to help manage your stress, from exercise to meditation, perhaps one of the best medicines for stress is laughter. Check out how laughter can contribute to alleviating your stress and improve your overall health.

Increased Oxygen

When you laugh, you pull in more oxygen. The more oxygen your body has, the better able your muscles, heart, and lungs can function. As the body absorbs oxygen, your brain releases mood-boosting chemicals called endorphins, creating the feeling of happiness.

Reduces Tension

It’s no secret that stress is bad for your health. However, laughter can help you to relax and unwind. Just as laughing increases activity in your heart, muscles, and lungs, it helps to increase stimulation. The more circulation, the better able your muscles can relax, which reduces your stress.

Boosts Immune System

The more stressed you are, the weaker your immune system becomes. In fact, a pessimistic outlook on life has various ill effects on your health. Change your negative perspective for a more positive one. The more that you laugh, the more positive you become; so much so that your positive thinking can help to release neuropeptides that work to fight stress and illness.

When it comes to your workplace, it’s imperative to manage your stress. Get the relief that you need with a little laughter and the right health insurance. For assistance with employee health benefits, contact the professionals at Remland Insurance!
