See the funny side

Take life too seriously and you might not get out of it alive! Humour is a terrific perspective to help manage stress. Its a powerful emotional filter and regulator, one of the best coping mechanisms if you develop the muscle.

Seeing the funny side can give you a free jolt of positive energy which transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, and can help you to be more imaginative and creative.

The Wellbeing research tells us that smiling and laughter reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol, so it’s good for your health too.
