And it’s also…National Humor Month!

With the end of the semester soon approaching, you may be feeling the increased pressure that comes with finishing research projects and studying for finals. Before you get too stressed out, I have some good news for you. April is National Humor Month, which makes this the perfect time for you to take a few minutes out of your day for a chuckle.

As you may already know, it’s been reported time and time again that laughter helps to reduce stress levels.  But, that’s not the only way laughter will benefit you during the final weeks of classes.  According to Discovery Communications and the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, laughter may also help to boost your immune system, increase blood flow, reduce pain, enhance your coping skills, improve memory and creativity, and it may even help you to experience a more restful sleep.

 

So take some time this month to experience the benefits that come from laughter. The Regina Library has a large collection of movies and books that will tickle your funny bone.  Stop by and check some out.
