Laughter Can Help Reduce Age-Related Memory Loss
The older we get, the more our memories start to fail us. This is just an unfortunate side effect of having a squishy, non-robotic body. However, there's one great way you can help improve your brain's memory: laugh.
According to research from Loma Linda University,
The act of laughter - or simply enjoying some humor - increases the release of endorphins and dopamine in the brain, which provides a sense of pleasure and reward.
These positive and beneficial neurochemical changes, in turn, make the immune system function better.
There are even changes in brain wave activity towards what's called the "gamma wave band frequency," which also amp up memory and recall.
While it may not always seem like it, it's possible to
rewire your brain to be happier and more positive
