Review: Humour, Seriously by Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas

Book release date: 8 October 2020

Book blurb: When was the last time you really laughed?

When we laugh, our brains release a cocktail of hormones that make us feel happier (dopamine), more trusting (oxytocin), less stressed (lowered cortisol), and even slightly euphoric (endorphins).

Laughter produces protective hormones, regulates blood pressure, reduces the effects of stress and helps boost the immune system. It even makes us live longer! A Norwegian study found that people with a sense of humour lived an average of 8 years longer than those less willing to crack a smile.

The ability to laugh and make others laugh is a precious quality that we need to hold onto and cultivate throughout our lives.

Humour, Seriously can help all of us to bring laughter and levity into every aspect of our lives.
