Giggling is another way of describing laughing • We looked up the word laughing in the dictionary and it explained that it meant:- • “to show emotion (as mirth, joy, or scorn) with a chuckle or explosive vocal sound - to become amused” • We usually giggle when something amuses us – this could be a joke, when being tickled, when someone says something funny or watching something funny on TV or in a film. What is giggling?
Laughing reduces stress and makes us feel good • It is good exercise for our stomach muscles and internal organs • When laughter is shared it can join people together • It can make you forget pain • Laughter relaxes the whole body • It has lots of health benefits so is good for our general well-being Why is it so important to laugh?
