Moment of Laughter Day is coming up, Izzy G announced on Friday. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but they do say that laughter is the best medicine, so we’re glad there’s a holiday for it. This odd holiday was created by professional speaker, trainer, author, and humor consultant, Izzy Gesell. Moment of Laughter Day is meant to share the importance of happiness and laughter.
Punch Bowl also reports that Moment of Laughter Day is an international holiday as well, so the whole world will be laughing! When exactly is National Moment of Laughter Day? This coming Monday, April 14. On this day, we are encouraged to watch a comedy, read a funny book, and share jokes with friends. Izzy comments that laughter can help relieve stress by installing optimism and raising our self-confidence. Laughter also enhances our relationships with others.
“Laughter comes right after breathing as just about the healthiest thing you can do,” Izzy tells the source. Other health benefits are the endorphins that are sent off as a natural feel-good chemical throughout our bodies. You know what they say, laughter is contagious, so let’s spread the smiles and laughs all day!
As mentioned above, Izzy is a humor consultant, but don’t confuse that with a comedian. A humor consultant is a person who studies the science and structure of humor. “I’m like the magician who takes you backstage and shows you how the tricks work,” Izzy writes. Of course, this doesn’t mean that people who attend Izzy’s presentations don’t have a lot of fun.
At Izzy G, you can find programs that will do more than lift your spirits, they help boost your self-esteem. Don’t stop the laughs after Moment of Laughter Day is over though, keep up the spirit long after it is over.
