Whenever you have a moment to be silly — do it. Yes, if you have children they’ll be mortified but you’ll be better for it. Being silly is serious business. It is good for you. Being silly has been proven to be healing in a variety of illnesses, particularly those involving autoimmunity.
Getting your silly on is more than goofing around. It’s actually a part of how our brains are wired. The play impulse comes from our brain stem and limbic systems and is inherent in both humans and animals. This physicality makes us more flexible under stress and is essential to our adaptability in life. As such— it’s to our benefit to stay in touch with this natural part of our nature.
Getting silly and playing around bolsters our immune system and reduces blood pressure: These two things make us more resilient. People who laugh regularly are likely to be more mentally and physically healthy. When we’re being silly, our minds tend to check out of the crowded thought-hotel we all stay in too often, and our minds are gently allowed to relax, wander and explore. Since our minds most effectively recall two extremes of memories: the very good and the very bad…building more great memories based on silliness is a good way to shore up against those days when we all feel a little sad.
