Make People Laugh as Your Daily Give – It’s a Double D.O.S.E. of Happy

Make People Laugh as Your Daily Give - 365give
Share Happiness!

It’s almost International Joke Day so why not make people laugh as your daily give. We love this day for one reason. It’s an easy way to bring laughter to another’s person’s life that just may need a big D.O.S.E of Happy.

Think back to one of those moments in your life when you laughed so hard it hurt or a tough day that turned around in just moments after hearing a really good joke, watching a funny YouTube video or favourite comedy show that had you splitting at the seams.

The positive effects of laughter have been studied for decades and now laughter clubs, laughter yoga – laughter therapy is popping up all over the world. Laughter and giving have one thing in common you may not know: it makes us happy, elevates our spirits, brings well being and better health to our lives and reduces stress. It a chemical reaction in our brains and bodies that’s worth having every day of the year.

We like to think of it as a Daily D.O.S.E of Happy. Here’s how giving and laughter go hand in hand to make every day a happy day.

A Daily D.O.S.E of Happy a Day – Keeps the Doctor (and Therapist) Away!

One action creates a reaction to bring a life filled with laughter and meaning. Here’s how it works:

  • Dopamine: Creates feelings of euphoria, bliss, while increasing motivation, and concentration
  • Oxytocin: Makes you feel love like a big hug.
  • Serotonin: Creates a feeling of happiness regulates mood swings
  • Endorphins: Nature’s way of making us feel “high” while blocking feelings of pain.

So what better way to do give but give the gift of laughter. Your daily double D.O.S.E. of Happy.
