Amidst all those holiday shopping lists, end-of-year reports and 2013 plans, how can you keep from feeling overwhelmed? Research says laughter is a simple, effective stress reliever. In the short-term, it soothes tension and inspires the release of feel-good endorphins. Over time, laughter can also boost your immune system, bring down blood pressure and help you build stronger personal connections. When co-workers share a laugh, it does wonders for the workplace environment – so why not make your team members smile with a holiday party on a Hornblower boat? For extra fun, bring aboard a comedian, set up a photo booth, offer karaoke or choose from one of several other entertainment options.
