Stress-Free Work Life: Dream or Reality?

As you may know, every Tuesday at 2 p.m. EST, there’s an association chat (#assnchat) that takes place on Blab. It’s hosted by Kiki L’Italien, Social Media Strategist, and often, one or two other guests.

Can you believe that?! Children laugh SO much. So what happens to us as adults that makes us laugh infinitely less?

If you guessed work (and the general stress of life), you’re right.

But laughing is SO healthy. It triggers the release of endorphins, giving you an overall sense of well-being.

So as adults, how can we laugh more? Well, many association professionals recommend watching a funny video clip during the work day. Here are a few that might put a smile on your face:

Hope these made you laugh as much as they did me!
