Team Building Tip of the Month: Laughter Is A Gift That Should Be Shared

Team Building LaughterI have some long time friends that always make me laugh out loud when I see them. Not just a chuckle, but the kind of laughter that brings tears to my eyes and makes my stomach hurt! I feel rejuvenated after their visit.

Laughter Is A Gift That Should Be Shared

Too often we take life too seriously and get bogged down in life’s details to enjoy the tonic that comes from laughter. Laughter relaxes the body and mind and helps keep things in perspective.

Clever jokes, funny stories should be shared. Recalling or telling a joke or story makes everyone feel better. People who share funny anecdotes or self- deprecating humor puts others at ease and builds for stronger relationships.

Remember that Laughter Is A Gift That Should Be Shared. Use social media to share funny comic strips or jokes you’ve heard. Share youtube videos and anything that will make people laugh. This is something that will work in the office and in a restaurant, as long as you make people happy they will appreciate you.

According to WebMD “Some researchers think laughter just might be the best medicine, helping you feel better and putting that spring back in your step… One pioneer in laughter research, William Fry, claimed it took ten minutes on a rowing machine for his heart rate to reach the level it would after just one minute of hearty laughter.”
