Psychologists maintain that laughter is a highly sophisticated social signaling system. It can help people bond and even negotiate. Laughter at staff meetings, on the corridors of workplaces, in classrooms and offices can release tension and dismantle unhelpful stubbornness. A colleague with a sense of humour is a powerful resource. A friend who makes you laugh is like gold dust especially in these challenging times.
We don’t always feel like laughing but the great thing is that humour is contagious. According to studies even when you are feeling low or stressed a joke can bring you out of it. Laughter spreads like wildfire. It is certainly something that would be very beneficial to catch. So leave yourself open to picking it up!!
