Spotlight on health. Laughter:
What benefits do laughter and smiling have on your daily life? Many studies have proven the impact that a single smile can have to resolve a situation or conflict. In a medical context, laugh therapy has also been a hot topic for several years now. According to researchers, laughing helps reduce pain and stress, improves digestion, facilitates sleep and boosts energy. Studies show that, 100 years ago, people laughed 19 minutes a day. Today, we laugh less than a minute, notably due to social pressure and a stressful pace of life. On the contrary, a child laughs 300 times a day on average. A good mood and laughter are sources of unlimited energy and promote joie de vivre and wellness. So get your giggle on.
