Yesterday’s post was heavy, so today I’m going to give my brain, and your brain a spa day with some humor.
Humor also helps the brain regulate…dopamine levels, reports a Stanford research team in the December 4, 2003, issue of the journal Neuron. Dopamine, also known as “the reward hormone,” is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, motivation, attention and learning.
(Oh all right – you caught me. This supports growth and development too!)
Fun thing #1: My sister and brother in their matching “Age of Aquarius” outfits are awesome!!
Fun thing #2: Jokes for the kids (you can get more at the site below, but here’s a few up front:
Q: What do you call a bear with no teeth?
A gummy bear!
Q: What do you call a cow with no legs?
Q: What do you call an alligator in a vest?
Fun thing #3: This is my totally un-PC guilty pleasure. Amy Schumer doing her stand up…definitely not for the kids.
