National Humor Month was started to heighten public awareness of the therapeutic value of humor. Laughter and joy - the benchmarks of humor - lead to improved well-being, boosted morale, increased communication skills, and an enriched quality of life.
It's no coincidence that the month begins with April Fool's Day!
Humor lifts ailing spirits and is an established notion supported by scientific research. The power of laughter and its ability to relieve debilitating stress and burnout may indeed be one of the great medical discoveries of our times.
So let's indulge in some laughter this month to help us get through this time of being isolated at home.
