When was the last time you laughed? Really laughed so hard that you had tears in your eyes?
For me, it was hearing this joke:
How do you know if there is a dinosaur in the fridge?
Because you can't close the door!
I told this joke to my daughter and she asked why it was funny - but I couldn't explain why! Well, this just made me laugh even more, which in turn made her laugh. And then we couldn't stop laughing at each other.
That's the marvellous thing about laughter, isn't it? It's so infectious. And it has so many health benefits. Laughter can lower our stress levels and make us feel more relaxed; it lowers blood pressure; it makes us feel more connected to people. Some studies even show that children that laugh a lot sleep better.
