According to Paul Agumbire Akapanga, a Senior Nutritionist with the Catholic Health Services, poor mental health may result from people refusing to laugh. In a recent interview on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East, Mr. Akapanga emphasized that laughter is an effective way to lighten burdens and feel alive. He suggested that people seek out moments of excitement and humor, such as watching children play and make mistakes or taking in the beauty of nature, to find joy and laughter in life.
Mr. Akapanga pointed out that laughter has numerous physical and emotional health benefits, including reducing stress, increasing happiness, and boosting the immune system. Laughter can promote the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals, which can improve mood and reduce pain.
In today’s world, where many people are struggling with mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, Akapang’s advice is particularly relevant. Taking the time to find joy and laughter in life can be an effective way to improve mental wellbeing and reduce the negative effects of stress.
