Benefits of Laughter During the Holiday Season

Fan Experience

As we enter another busy holiday season, we’d like to remind you of the benefits of laughter. We know that this can be a stressful time whether you are spending time with family, friends, or alone.


So consider this a gentle reminder that Plauzzable is here for you. If you’re a comedian, we welcome you to host a show, collaborate with fellow comedians to produce one together or attend open mics. If you’re a fan, we welcome you to log in and join any of the shows or open mics that fit into your schedule. Plauzzable is here for connection and shared laughter. 


Laughter can aid in the following: 


Emotional Well-Being: Laughter can improve mood and emotional well-being. It triggers the release of endorphins, which are natural feel-good hormones. This can help reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, which are common during the holidays.


Stress Reduction: Laughter can reduce stress. Stress reduction can help enhance the overall quality of life.


Social Interaction: Laughter often occurs in social situations and can facilitate social interaction. Engaging in activities that promote laughter, such as watching a funny movie or participating in group laughter therapy, can foster connections with others, improving the social and emotional aspects of life.


Improved Cognitive Function: Some studies suggest that laughter can stimulate cognitive function. 


Pain Relief: Laughter may have a pain-relieving effect by releasing endorphins and promoting muscle relaxation. 


It's important to note that the benefits of laughter are largely psychological and emotional.
