Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about the sense of humor that is essential. One of the finest things you can do for your health is to laugh. A sense of humor is almost like your mind’s defense mechanism.
When exposed to certain types of unpleasant stimuli, people who are at risk for depression frequently have depressive episodes, and later, it gets increasingly simple for them to relapse. Yet putting a funny spin on a bad experience serves as a type of emotional filter that keeps the negativity from setting off a melancholy episode.
Humor protects against more than just depression. Also, it raises people’s standard of living generally. According to studies, those who excel at specific forms of humor have higher levels of self-worth, positive affect, self-competence, control over anxiety, and social interaction skills. But, not all comedy is treated equally.
In the same study, the researchers classified humor into four categories: affiliative humor, or humor meant to cultivate social connections; self-enhancing humor, or having a humorous outlook on life in general; aggressive humor, or making fun of other people; and self-defeating humor, in which a person supports jokes that make fun of themselves or are self-deprecating.
Laughter has been found to increase physical immunity, cardiovascular health, and productivity, according to research. Although making fun of people is a bad thing, it is important to seek the ideal type of humor. Thank you.
