laugh can be enough to reduce stress

laugh can be enough to reduce stress 300x187 laugh can be enough to reduce stressJust anticipating a laugh can be enough to reduce stress, say researchers from Loma Linda University. Volunteers were told that they’d be watching a comedy later in the day before having their hormone levels measured. They found that two hormones (beta-endorphins which beat depression, and human growth hormone which boosts immunity) increased by 27 per cent and 87 per cent respectively, while the stress hormones cortisol, epinephrine and dopac were reduced by 39 per cent, 70 per cent and 38 per cent respectively. So slash work stress by setting up the reminder function on your email to give you a chuckle when you hit the 3 pm slump.
