Laughing is Good for You
August 28, 2017
In the quiet hours when we are alone with ourselves and there is nobody to tell us what fine fellows we are, we come sometimes upon a weak moment in which we wonder, not how much money we are earning, nor how famous we are becoming, but what good we are doing.
-A. A. Milne, Not That It Matters

"How can caregivers foster a sense of humor in children, and why is it important to do so?" asks Nicole J. Dillon in her article, "What's So Funny? Fostering Humor in Children" in the July/August, 2017 edition of Exchange magazine.

"Humor has many benefits, not only for children but also for adults. From a health perspective, children who laugh more are less depressed, have lower heart rates, pulse and blood pressure, and have better digestion, improved immune function, and higher pain tolerance. These health benefits have been shown to continue into adulthood. In addition, children who laugh more are happier, more optimistic, have higher self-esteem, and are more liked by their peers."
