Building your resilience to stress is critical to help-
ing you cope with the day-to-day, and it s a multi-
pronged process---after all, as we all know, there is
no magic bullet.
There are so many powerful ways to improve your
ability: living mindfully, slowing down, observing and
understanding your own habits. Aligning your actions
with your core values---particularly around New Year s,
when you re about to put the pedal to the metal in
terms of resolutions.
But it s also really, really critical that you laugh.
Hard. No kidding.
If you make it a point to laugh---regularly---you ll
reap physical, emotional, and social benefits, too. Not
that you needed a recommendation to do it! But you
could use a reminder of why putting humour first
When you laugh, you...
Stimulate your circulation.
Laughter enhances breathing, stimulates heart, lungs
and other major muscle groups, and increases endorphin

Activates and relieves your stress response.

This one s obvious, but worth mentioning, especially
since the tail-end of the holidays and the return to
the regular grind can feel like a downer. It doesn t
have to be that way. Even just watching a short video
can give you that lift that makes a difference. In addition
to doing your regular rounds of the news, build in a
few funny pitstops along the way, whether it s Funny
or Die, The Onion, or searching cat videos on YouTube.
Connect with others.
It goes without saying that sharing a joke or a funny
experience ramps up a bond between people like almost
nothing else. So try making it a goal not just to show
up and be social but to share moments with people
that make you laugh, and it can change the tenor of
your night, yes, but also those relationships.
