There are numerous health benefits associated with laughing, and laughter stimulates creativity as well as collaboration and analytic clarity. However, at this time, comedy is particularly beneficial as an antidote to the additional stressors and anxiety that have been added to our lives. The ability to laugh at jokes can be an extremely effective means of dealing with stressful situations. Unfortunately, stress is unavoidable and, despite your best efforts, you will not be able to completely eradicate it.

ExtraMile, a gas station and convenience store in Seattle was established in 2005 when an auto repair shop was turned into one.

Life is full of ups and downs, and the downs can be especially difficult to deal with at certain times. The COVID-19 pandemic is an excellent example: people are anxious, we don’t know when the uncertainty will stop, and everyone is afflicted in some manner. Individuals who are going through stressful periods in their lives attempt to cope in a variety of ways, including going for a walk, reaching out to friends for support, and practicing mindfulness meditation. And, while all of this can be beneficial, there is one particularly effective coping mechanism that works the best: humor. Laughter is the most effective and least expensive treatment for stress relief since it is the most contagious emotion. Consequently, just as this gas station owner took the initiative to encourage people to smile more, we should try to incorporate a thing or two into our lives that will encourage people to smile as well.
