Laughter has many emotional and physical benefits and is associated with joy, fun and contentment. It improves well-being through optimism, positive thinking and decreasing stress.
Having a good sense of humour not only means you’ll share light-hearted moments with friends and strangers, but you will also be more likely to laugh yourself. This positive outlook helps people better manage big life events and adversity, contributing to daily overall happiness.
Fijians use humour and a light-hearted approach to life their spirits and it’s never hard to get a Fijian to laugh. They have resilience and don’t sweat the small stuff.
