A Couple Who Laughs Together, Last together
You might be thinking it’s not proven so maybe it’s not true. But science confirms that couples who laugh together, last together.
Some studies found out that those couples who spent time laughing together were more likely to enjoy strong, positive relationships and indicated that reminiscing about shared laughter also had a positive influence on a relationship. It concluded that when couples recalled moments when they had laughed together, the benefits were greater than for other, more general, forms of reminiscing.
So talking about “ Do you remember that time when we…?” and sharing a chuckle while you do it helps to reinforce the bond that keeps two people together.
But how can we laugh more as a couple?
Most important thing, is to not take yourself too seriously. If you treat everything too serious, you’ll function at home much like you do at work or in other surroundings. Of course be focused is good and natural when something needs doing, but during periods of relaxation, just let yourself be free, childlike, funny and humorous.
Dance in the kitchen, go on adventures, play games, just let loose and do what feels right. Relive those fun times you had together, look at photos if you have them, and even revisit the places where the laughter happened. Create inside jokes that only you know about or make pranks on each other but only if you both enjoy a good pranking.
Another important thing is, to live in the present moment as a couple. Don’t sit there together staring at your phones when you could be enjoying each other’s company. After work take some time in the evening and resist the temptation to fill silence with noise; you don’t need music playing or the TV blaring all the time.
The more you able to live in the now together, the greater the opportunity for moments of amusement to arise.
You see, laughter has so many natural benefits, it’s like a relationship improver. Sharing a smile, a giggle, or even a guffaw with your partner can break tension, create a sense of closeness, and improve communication. Keep in mind all the good you’re doing the next time you break out into spontaneous laughter.
