Laughter and joy have an essential role in human life. Laughing together with your colleagues relaxes and reduces stress. It also seems to help to learn and improve our ability to collaborate. Laughter activates our sense of wonder and improves retention. Activating our brain's dopamine system adds joy to our day while improving our learning.
Laughing also helps to bring the team together. When there is a need for collaboration, shared joy can improve the ability to work together.
