Benefit of Fun

My top 3 health reasons for having fun

Better sleep – having fun and laughing lowers the hormone cortisol and raises the hormone serotonin. Having a proper level of these two hormones can lead to great sleep.

Better memory – having fun helps clear headspace and live in the now. It is easier to stay focused when you are not worrying about the past or the future.

Emotional healing – having fun helps make new and positive memories and can help remind us of the important things in life.

Taking time to play, smile, laugh and share a fun moment with a friend ultimately help us have a healthier and more fulfilled life. Think of ways you can add some fun to your day and spread joy.
