In tears, doubled up and unable to breath, a good bout can be painful. But we love it. It’s addictive and research shows it’s good for us. So why don’t we laugh more often?
As stress, anxiety and tension increase, mirth wanes and it becomes more difficult to find things funny.
But help is out there.
Through laughter-yoga clubs, clown workshops and comedy courses, funny seminars, self-help humour books and laughing tapes, we can discover what kind of humour we respond to best.
