If you like rubber necking to get a look at a bad accident, you will love this show. All the guilty pleasure of watching a train wreck and so much more! The old saying “laughter is the best medicine” has a lot of truth to it. Laughter has many healing properties that are not limited to just mental health or reducing stress. Laughter has many positive effects, from easing anxiety to boosting the feel good endorphins. If you are suffering from grief or depression, laughing at a funny joke can bring momentarily relief. Depression is accompanied by suppression of the pleasure-enhancing neurochemicals in the brain. Persons suffering from chronic depression often admit, “Nothing is funny to me.” Laughter reverses this process by triggering the release of feel-good neurohormones, such as endorphins and dopamine. Researchers believe that laughter activates the pleasure pathways in the brain.
Join us as we discuss the importance of laughter in life. Dog and Squid will discuss serious issues regarding mental health and addiction with a humorous twist. If you are troubled by addiction, depression, anxiety or PTSD you will not want to miss this fun show geared to helping us heal through laughter. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
