MBL Minute: An Attitude Of Gratitude And The Neuroscience Of Laughter


Episode Notes


It is impossible to feel gratitude and anxiety at the same time.  Gratitude requires an appreciation of the positive aspects of a situation.  An increase in gratitude could have such wide-ranging effects as increased exercise, improved sleep, lower blood pressure, decreased stress and fewer aches and pains.


Laughter is a key to building trusted advisor relationships.  Stressful situations cause the release of the hormone cortisol to be released in our brain, negatively impacting your memory.  Laugher leases endorphins which is often seen as societal glue.
