Being funny and humorous is possibly one of the most amazing things you can do for your mental health and your physical health. You can almost think of a sense of humour as the immune system for your brain. People who are addressed for depression, anxiety and panic attacks tend to fall into some very depressive episodes when they are exposed to a lot of negative stimuli. It becomes very easy for them to relapse into depression even if you’re trying to get out of it. For such people, humour is one of the most amazing medicines that you can give. If you know someone who is facing depression or anxiety, they need some fun. Fun and humour or two things that can immediately improve a person’s mood and a person’s mental health. Such people often reframe some negative events in their mind, and this is something that would harm them. They should start reframing it in a humorous light, and then they should be implemented with the help of an emotional filter which then prevents the negativity from triggering any sort of anxiety or depressive episodes.
Humour and comedy is not only a guard against depression, it improves the quality of life, overall. A lot of researchers have actually found that people who score highly when it comes to types of humour, tend to have a better self-esteem, have a more positive outlook, have better self-competence, have more control over anxiety issues and are better performance when it comes to social interaction. You need to keep in mind that not all kinds of humour are actually made equal. A lot of studies have found that there are different types of humour, and they include affiliate humour, self-enhancing humour, self-defensive humour, aggressive humour, self-defeating humour, and self-deprecating humour. Some of the above will actually end up targeting the person itself. You need to find the kind of humour that will uplift yourself and the people around you. Humour and comedy should be used to make people happy and to make people laugh. Laughter is the best medicine that you can give to a person who is facing mental health issues. Self-deprecating and self-defeating humour can actually end up targeting a lot of people. It is definitely a committing to make fun of others at the expense of humour.
Aside from improving your mental health, laughter can actually be a very productive tool as well. Laughter is contagious, and it simply lights up the entire room. The benefits of a sense of humour are so very profound, and the power of humour is actually taken for granted, in today’s world.
