Who Knew a Funny YouTube Video Could Be Good for Your Health?
If you need a good laugh, what better place to visit than YouTube? With a bottomless pit of funny videos, you can be entertained for hours. It’s definitely my go-to when stuck at an airport, or in a room with someone I’m purposely ignoring. Who can be mad while laughing? It’s impossible. Laughter has many benefits. It’s even good for your health!
Benefits of Laughter
On The Couple Test, I call laughter “the love potion.” A great sense of humor is attractive. Laughter is contagious. It can bring so much joy and happiness into your life. Laughter can improve a relationship and help to maintain a healthy relationship. Humor eases tension and defensiveness in heated moments, allowing you to “weather the storm.” Laughter prevents awkwardness, and can make your significant other your best friend. Laughter is fun, especially at a party or celebration. Turns out, laughter may be better than the Super Bowl! It is also a direct path to intimacy. Playful intimacy is the best aphrodisiac! Who knew “LOL” could be so important?
Warning! The Absence of Laughter Can Be Hazardous to Your Health
These are just some of the health benefits of laughter:

Get on YouTube and get your laugh on, or for the sake of your mood, romantic relationship, and your health, let your guard down and just be silly sometime. LOL!
