I’ve talked about the power of laughter the last two days and today I am talking about how laughter can actually be good for your career. How? Well first the obvious. The person with a warm and funny sense of humor is going to be well liked and the person who is well liked is going to get ahead at work.
Not only that but research has shown that people who laugh and are funnier are more productive than people who are not happy. Laughter reduces stress and anxiety and can produce hyper focus on a task immediately afterward.
So, find ways to laugh everyday. It’s good for your health, your relationships and your career.
