I would like to share something. I have been a member of a couple of different laughter clubs over the years.
(The technical term is laughter yoga)
We meet weekly, do some stretching and exercises and do a whole bunch of laughter exercises for about half an hour. Between laughter we clap hands and go "ho ho, ha ha ha". Jokes are not used.
The basic theory is that it increases oxytocin (the love hormone) and other feel good hormones. Even if the laughter is not real, it is still good for you. (Doesn't have to be real though)
Maybe not for everyone, but it works for me. Brightens my day.
Possibly something to explore and might be worth a mention in discussions of happiness etc.
