You’ve heard the saying “laughter is the best medicine” and for many reasons, that could be true. There are a lot of benefits of laughing together as a couple whether it’s a good movie, funny jokes, or memories. Humor in marriage helps keep those exciting feelings of being in love alive. Laughter also helps you feel happy (of course) and couples who laugh have a better perception of life. Some of the benefits of laughter Include:
QUALITY OF LIFE
- It strengthens your immune system
- Boosts your mood
- Reduces pain
- Reduces stress
Nothing brings your mind, spirit and body back into balance quicker than laughing.
When you laugh with your spouse and feel happy and good, your overall quality of live will significantly improve. People that have a sense of humor and laugh a lot have a different outlook on life and notice the happy and positive things. They look for the good in life.
ADDS EXCITEMENT TO THE RELATIONSHIP
One of my favorites shows is “Impractical Jokers”. You never know what they are going to say or do and you are always left wanting more. Millions of people watch them and although they never meet them, they feel a connection to them. It is no different with your spouse. When you joke around, play pranks on each other and do things to make each other laugh, embarrass them (in a good way) and have that playful humor, it adds excitement (and romance) to the relationship.
IMPORTANT IN DIFFICULT OR STRESSFUL TIMES
When life just kicks your butt laughter is a great escape. Sharing humor with your spouse can make the difficult and stressful times much easier. Laughing increases the flow of oxygen in the body, helps with your body’s stress response, and relieves tension in the body and helps us get through difficult times.
HELPS YOU RECONNECT AND HAVE FUN
Think of your most happy and memorable times together as a couple. Chances are it including having alot of fun and probably alot of laughter. Laughter has a way of connecting you and obviously makes things alot of fun! This is why so many couples do game nights and other fun things with friends. People are also attracted to people that make them laugh.
