Aging Well With Laughter

By Donna Stark

You are told to eat more vegetables, go to bed on time, take a daily walk, and wear your sunscreen so that you may be able to age more gracefully. But has anyone ever told you to tell a joke? Or to watch a comedy show on TV? Or to hang around your goofy kids more often? If not, you may want to think about doing so because laughter could be the secret ingredient to a flawless aging process. Here's why you should get your giggles going.

Aging Well With Laughter in Your Life

By now, you have probably heard that laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, there really isn't any type of medicine that will reverse the signs of aging, but laughter may help you feel young again. Take a look at some of the benefits you will receive by bringing some extra chuckles into your life.

  • Eases muscle tension
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Relieves pain
  • Increases oxygen intake
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Burns calories
  • Improves moods
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increases connections with others

How to Add More Laughter to Your Days

Laughter doesn't always come naturally. In fact, you may need to intentionally pursue it! Here are some great ideas on how to bring more into your days. 

  • Pull out the scrapbooks - There is nothing better than sitting down with your loved ones, peeking at the past, and laughing at all the memories you have made. Do you remember those crazy outfits you used to wear? How about the time your sibling fell into the river? Or when the bird flew into your home? Pictures of times long gone are a great way to connect, laugh, and reminisce with others.
  • Start a group text - Start a group text with loved ones and randomly share funny stories, daily jokes, or silly memes and pictures. It's a great way to break up the monotony of the day and get an extra chuckle or two.
  • Offer to babysit - Do you know of anyone that could use a day off from parental duties? If you do, offer to babysit their toddler and make sure you have a box of tissues near you throughout the entire time! Why? Well, it is almost guaranteed that you will be laughing so hard at the little one's shenanigans, your eyes will tear up. 

Staying Young With Laughter

Forget everything you have been told about those expensive creams and lotions. Age gracefully simply by adding some extra laughter into your days! You may be surprised by how well it works!
