I love to laugh! Why was I surprised that funny material increased recall? Just expecting something to be funny, the minute or two anticipating increases chemicals driving attention and memory. The endogenous opioids are our feelings of happiness and boost the immune system (looking into a phone diminishes). No need to become a comedian, you are already working hard, go get humor…find what is funny! Lace it into homelife and work because hilarious from a movie, from the funniest videos online, sections of a funny book, from a cartoon/illustration make life easier. The power of looking for funny, sharing stories that are funny, all increase the release those endogenous opioids that sustain mental health and physical health.
