Happy Women’s Day!

#EachforEqual

Calling all ladies and girls, it’s time to celebrate! Along with its honorific as Women’s History Month, 8 March is also when International Women’s Day falls every year. As the saying goes, “a woman is like a teabag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” This special day recognizes all the mothers, grandmothers, friends and other strong women who make a difference in our lives every day.

Women's power

Going through the journey of life, you don’t always see tears and laughter comes together. An empowered woman endures these emotions stronger than you know. Laughter is a key component of their happy life and it has powerful physical and mental benefits. No matter what you’re facing, you can learn to laugh and benefit from its healing ways.

Funny movies, sitcoms, cute toddlers, and a good friend’s jokes can all offer one of the most powerful, natural stress relievers out there: laughter.

Health Boosts from a Good Laugh

According to a recent research in 2019, the number of mental health for women in Malaysia is increasing worriedly and that’s not a good sign for society. The benefits of a good laugh are wide-ranging and can help to prevent emotional issues like depression and improving the health of your heart. Here’s what experts know about the health benefits of laughter:

A good ol’ mind

Although you probably can’t laugh off depression, one of the many benefits of laughter and a sense of humour is that they buffer you against the negatives of life that could lead to depression. People who use humor to fight stress also feel less lonely and more positive about themselves.

A greater fit

Although we can’t yet say that a certain number of laughs every day will keep the doctor away, studies show that people who say they laugh a lot also tend to be in good health and generally feel well. Laughter is also one of the most commonly used for complementary therapies among cancer patients, who find that one of the benefits of laughter is an improved quality of life.

Laughter could be healthy for your heart, too. When you laugh, there is an increase in oxygen-rich blood flow in your body, possibly due to the release of endorphins, which create a chemical rush that counters negative feelings and stress. Activities that increase endorphins include a good workout and listening to the music that you love.

Laughter indeed deserves its place on the list with these other stress busters. Sometimes you have to make a conscious effort to laugh. If you’re facing tough times such as a tight budget, work stress, or an illness like cancer, it may help to learn techniques to bring the benefits of laughter into your life. You could grab some funny books or movies, chit-chatting with your girl gang or even just remembering the good times that bring you cheer and laugh in the past.

With this year’s theme for International Women’s Day: EachforEqual, it’s all about appreciating and empowering women around the world, not creating a war between gender roles.
