The human being is curious by nature and is one of the most powerful and effective ways to assimilate and understand our environment and the world.
That's why I decided to start writing about this exciting topic in some of my blogs.
I hope you like it, and as I always tell you, feel free to comment on the comments.
Today I will start with a curiosity that has to do with our joy, Laughter.
Did you know?
When laughing our brain enters an altered state of consciousness similar to meditation.
This could be another reason to laugh and it can also improve your memory and reduce the effects of stress, according to the researchers.
Laughter can help minimize the damage that stress hormones cause.
Stress produces cortisol, a hormone that increases blood sugar, suppresses the immune system and can negatively affect the memory and learning ability of older people.
At the same time it can contribute to a number of health problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.
But to combat cortisol is humor. Laughing or just enjoying a little humor increases the release of endorphins and dopamine in the brain, which provides a sense of pleasure and reward.
These positive and beneficial neurochemical changes, in turn, make the immune system work better. They also amplify memory and memory.
Joyful laughter "immediately produces the same frequencies of brain waves that people experience in a true state of meditation."
