This has been one of the most debatable issues in the world of technology. Die-hard fans even succumb to the point of getting into a fight against each other. Two of the revolutionary companies that shaped the technological evolution.
Now. Which between the two do you think is better? I’m talking about the general view in terms of functionality and design. Which do you think?
“Laughter is the best medicine.”
How do you respond to this old chestnut? Is it just a cliché or does it really make sense?
In Science, there are a lot of benefits laughter brings. One of which is the reduction of stress hormones (coritsol, epinephrine or adrenaline, dopamine and growth hormone). It also increases the level of health-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and neurotransmitters. In simple terms, it means that whenever we laugh, we expel stress which develops a stronger immune system.
Laughter also paves the easiest way to workout. Well, internally. The abs contract and the diaphragm expands every time we laugh out loud. After which, the heart relaxes.
So much for the Science, laughter is relational in its entire sense. It’s kinda weird though when we laugh alone, right? Generally, we laugh whenever we socially interact with others. When a friend drops a joke–whether corny or really funny–in the middle of your conversation. When one of your officemates unintentionally leaves his Facebook in the open and an officemate updates the status with: “I am missing someone”, “I am handsome” or “I am in love”. Or when you watch Scare Tactics or a Japanese prank in your spare time (you can do this alone).
If smiling makes a difference, how much more can laughing create? It is contagious, infectious and–even–epidemic.
Bond with friends. Watch a movie with your family. Eat Out. Take a stroll. Explore life. Love much. Laugh. Laugh hard.
