Healthy Aging: How Laughter Keeps the Brain Young

Ever wonder why we laugh? Why it’s important? And how laughter keeps the brain healthy? We all know the saying, “laughter is the best medicine.” 

It’s actually true! There’s a lot of science to support this, because having a giggle with some friends floods our brains with happy hormones that make us thrive. We’ll explain more in a second.

Turnagain Social Club is an adult day care center that provides activities, personal care, supervision, and so much more to help keep your brain young.

Let’s jump straight into the benefits of laughter.

There are many reasons why laughing is important. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Laughter releases a lot of endorphins  
  • Laughing is contagious 
  • Laughing is also good for your mental health

The good news is that laughing isn’t a job. You don’t have to work to laugh, it’s something that is triggered naturally. Turnagain Social Club can help you keep the brain young by laughing, releasing endorphins by the many activities they provide. 

If you try to incorporate laughter into your daily lifestyle, it will make a huge difference to your state of mind, happiness, and overall well-being.

Remember, you’re never too old to laugh.

The older we get, the more we stress about whether we are living our lives to the fullest.

Laughter is one of the greatest gifts we were given and what better time to put it to use than your senior years? There’s no time like the present!
