Benefits To Attending Comedy Shows
If you have ever attended a comedy show, there’s a probably certainty that you will enjoy yourself and you will laugh. However, did you know that there are additional benefits to attending a comedy show?
- Reduces stress – Laughing, especially that holding your gut laugh, reduces stress hormone levels like cortisol and epinephrine.
- Muscle relaxer – Laughter increases oxygen flow and helps relieve built up muscle tension.
- Burns calories – Believe it or not, laughing burns calories. Laughing for 10-15 minutes can potentially burn 50 calories.
- Stimulates the brain – Laughing takes work for your brain. It stimulates multiple areas of your brain and the processes required for laughing actually makes laughing a complex activity.
So, regular attendance of a comedy show can be to your benefit. If you haven’t checked one out recently, I encourage you to. Meanwhile, you can check out some of my show clips.
