Managing Stress With Humor Handout

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Managing stress using humor involves laughter as a strategy to cope with challenging life situations. Studies have shown that laughter has beneficial effects on anxiety, depression, general health, and a person’s experience with pain.

The Managing Stress With Humor Handout shares relevant studies about humor and stress. It also provides 7 tips to embrace humor, such as watching comedy movies and reading funny comics.

Kids and teens who read this handout may feel encouraged to use humor as a constructive way to deal with setbacks instead of resorting to unhealthy coping strategies. To make their learning process interactive, encourage them to pick a strategy and put it into action each day.

You can also engage in a discussion in which your child identifies situations where humor could be used to manage stress.

Feel free to check out our 39-page Stress Management Handouts Bundle, which provides a wide variety of research-based strategies to manage stress.
