Brain Teasers: A Good Laugh

Laugh­ing feels good. Laugh­ing is indeed good in most cases. A good belly laugh amounts to an aer­o­bic exer­cise as your blood pres­sure and heart rate increase, your breath­ing changes and your diaphragm con­tracts. Laugh­ing has also been shown to boost the immune sys­tem and reduce stress.

Laugh­ing is thus good for your brain! Here are two fun ways to take a fur­ther look at laugh­ter and the brain :

  • Lis­ten to these laughs and decide whether it is a human or a com­puter laughing.
  • Try this to find out how much you are stressed. You may be surprised…

Enjoy!
