What is it about humour that can lift spirits so easily?
Feeling meh? Put on a hilarious comedy and that’ll change
One of the reasons is that your mind can’t help but alter mood when you laugh. Coca Cola did a study which demonstrated that when you laugh, you feel happy. It may sound like an obvious statement but it’s actually if you make yourself laugh physically, it alters mood. Not that happy people laugh (which everyone obviously does when they are happy)
The link between physical actions and emotion is direct and incredibly strong
