Hey there folks, it’s your friendly neighborhood Jester here to talk about the importance of #laughter! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Oh great, another lecture on how we need to be more #positive.” But hear me out, because as the longest running #improv #comedyshow in Arizona, we know a thing or two about the #poweroflaughter.
First of all, have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to be going wrong, but then someone cracks a joke and suddenly everything feels a little bit better? That’s the magic of #laughter. It can turn a crappy day into a tolerable one, and a tolerable day into a great one.
Plus, laughter is scientifically proven to be good for you! It releases all kinds of happy chemicals in your brain, like dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. It’s like a natural high, except you don’t have to deal with the sketchy guy in the alleyway to get it.
But here’s the thing, folks. Laughter is contagious. When one person starts laughing, it’s like a domino effect. Pretty soon everyone in the room is giggling like a bunch of school kids. And let’s be real, there’s nothing better than being part of a group laugh. It’s like being in a secret club where the only requirement is that you have a sense of humor.
So next time you’re feeling down in the dumps, try watching a comedy special, or hanging out with that one friend who always makes you laugh. Better yet, come see a show at JesterZ. More better yet, TAKE AN IMPROV CLASS and learn to be the one who not only helps others to laugh and feel good – but give yourself the gift of laughter as well.
