Celebrating International Moment of Laughter Day

13 Apr Celebrating International Moment of Laughter Day

International Moment of Laughter Day is celebrated on April 14, 2020. The goal of this day is to get people to laugh, because “laughter is the best medicine”.

The unofficial holiday, created by humorologist Izzy Gesell, encourages people to forget the stresses of daily life and give into the healing and relaxing power of laughter.  Medical studies have shown that laughing reduces stress, increases blood flow, and lowers blood sugar levels. Some studies have found that people who laugh just before going to bed are much more likely to sleep better than those who did not.  Laughter is a way to spread joy and happiness and bring cheer in the lives of other people.
