National Humor Month is might as a means to heighten public awareness of the therapeutic value of humor. Laughter and joy – the benchmarks of humor – lead to improved well-being, boosted morale, increased communication skills, and an enriched quality of life.
It’s no surprise that the month begins with April Fool’s Day, a day which has sanctioned frivolity and amusement for hundreds of years.
Humor as a tool to lift spirits is an established notion supported by scientific research. The curative power of laughter and its ability to relieve debilitating stress and burnout may indeed be one of the great medical discoveries of our times.
