Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Laughter is not only fun, but also extremely good for your health. It reduces stress, improves your immune system and even strengthens connections with others. Do you want to increase your daily dose of humor? Here are five ways for you to laugh more every day!

1 - Start the day with a smile

Start every morning with a smile. This may sound simple, but it is a powerful way to start your day on a positive note. Smiling, even when you're not feeling happy, can still help your body release endorphins, which are natural painkillers and improve your mood. A smile at yourself in the mirror, or even a smile at a stranger on the street, can go a long way.

For example, start the morning with the Happlify playlist on shuffle!


2 - Watch funny content

A sure way to laugh more is to watch laugh films, comedy series or YouTube videos. Choose genres and shows that are known for their humor. Stand-up comedy, sitcoms or funny podcasts during your daily commute to work, lunch or evening can help add more laughs to your day.

Funny cat videos are always a hit.

3 - Surround yourself with positivity

Your environment can have a major influence on your state of mind. Surround yourself as much as possible with positive people who love to laugh. Social interactions, especially cheerful ones, can boost your own sense of happiness. Find friends or colleagues who are known for their sense of humor and spend more time with them.

On the other hand, don't watch too much news and try not to let social media dominate. Take a critical look at your daily screen time. Less is always better in this case. Do you need help with that? Then check out Happlify's Digital detox .

4 - Take a break for humor

Life itself can be overwhelming at times, and it's easy to get caught in a routine without much laughter. Therefore, consciously plan moments in your day where you can relax with something light and funny. This could be something as simple as reading a funny book, scrolling (time-limited!) through memes, or playing a game of UNO with your family, friends or colleagues.

5 - Be creative with your humor

Humor is a personal experience and what makes one person laugh may not work for another. Experiment and research to discover which type of humor suits you best. For example, try writing funny stories or jokes yourself, or participate in activities that stimulate laughter, such as laughter therapy. Did you know that there is even laughter yoga?! just watch the video below.


Whatever you do, laughter is a powerful way to improve your overall well-being. By integrating these five tips into your daily routine, you can create more cheerful moments that will not only brighten your day, but also contribute to a healthier life.
