Life is Better When You're Laughing
In my Physical Activity and Aging class, I researched the effects of laughter and various laughing therapies on older adults. This assignment was one of the most fun papers I have ever had the pleasure of researching and writing. Exploring new forms of rehabilitation and therapy is something very close to my heart with wanting to become an Occupation Therapist myself I believe that exploring new treatments and therapies is essential in the bettering of our society, I think that this class and assignment were most relevant to my career goals because I will be widely working with the aging populations. I am a very outgoing person and I am often told I am always smiling and laughing at almost everything, so when I was researching the effects of laughing as a form of therapy for many different diseases or conditions I was extremely intrigued. I believe that I was so drawn in by this topic because of the way I am and I would love nothing more than to share happiness and laughter to people that may need it.
