Laughter promotes well-being

Laughter is contagious. The reason for this are Spiegelneurons. But laughing can do more than that: it can increase productivity. Humorous people are actually considered to be particularly productive, flexible, sociable, successful and healthy.

In stressful situations, they prove to be more resilient. Enjoyment of work promotes physical and mental well-being. We all know this: when we're in a good mood and having fun at work, things are going well. On the other hand, when we sit grouchily and broodingly, things are progressing much more slowly. In addition, a good laugh can help relieve stress and improve health and performance.

Comedies promote blood circulation

This has also been proven scientifically: In a study, Michael Miller from the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore 20 showed test subjects at intervals of two days each a section of a comedy and a war drama. Before and after, they ultrasonically checked the perfusion of the main artery of the upper arm.

Most had in the opinion of the comedy increased circulation, while the majority had a poorer circulation after the war drama. From this the researchers concluded that laughter helps to keep the innermost tissue of the blood vessels, the so-called endothelium, healthy. The endothelium regulates the blood flow and the internal pressure of the blood vessels.

Think farsighted

Harvard psychologist Daniel Goleman also writes in his book “Emotional Intelligence” about the productivity-enhancing effects of laughter. In his opinion, laughter and enthusiasm help to think far-sighted and complex, to associate more freely and to discover mental networks that would otherwise remain hidden. Laughter opens up new dimensions of thought. Thus, laughing is not only an important help in the creative field, but also in the impact assessment of important decisions.

Linus Torvalds, founder of Linux software, sees fun and laughter as essential prerequisites for good programming. "People have to be allowed to do nonsense," said Torvalds.: Maybe that's why he chose a penguin as a symbol for his software?

Tips for a humorous life

To get back to the beginning of the article: By the imitation effect, because laughing causes, it also improves cooperation and team spirit. Shared laughter creates a we-feeling. And, of course, communication within colleagues is also good if you treat each other in a friendly and humorous way instead of looking on grumpily.

So what do you do? Experts recommend laughing loudly for 15 minutes every day. Even an artificial laugh has positive effects. Those who can not do it alone can attend humors or laughter yoga classes.

Better laugh than ponder

If you can't find anything to laugh about, you may be brooding too much. Thinking about why things didn't work out can also make sense. Of psychologyprofessor Neal Roese deals in his book “Oh, I should have!” with regrets about missed opportunities and doubts about decisions made. He vividly explains why crying over spilled milk, i.e. over things that can no longer be changed anyway, is not unnecessary; on the contrary, it is a very important psychological process.

When you think about past situations in depth and think about what you could have done better, you will behave better in similar situations in the future - and in any case go into a situation more prepared. Though it may seem unproductive at first, pondering it can have some positive effects if it motivates us to improve things and leads to the solution of a problem.

Thinking is therefore meaningful, not aimless brooding

But there are limits. The more one thinks about what exactly one could do in a situation, the more the brain has to work hard. The longer you look at it, the more complicated the problem becomes, and it becomes more difficult to come to a conclusion. This reinforces the impression that the situation is not under control. The self-confidence disappears, one becomes more insecure.

It therefore helps, according to “Stop!” Every time you start brooding. accept. Or attach a rubber band to your wrist and pull it. It is often enough to be aware of this mechanism. Anyone who tends to roll thoughts back and forth endlessly and thus block themselves can try this very simple but effective method, which only takes about 15 seconds.
