Because it's cold outside; because people are living overseas with out their families; because it's cuffing season and some of y'all are still single - there's so many reasons why many people are battling seasonal depression, but there's good news. You don't have to fight it alone AND we have a tool to help you overcome it. What is this tool, you ask? Well, it's laughter of course! Going to comedy shows can be a great way to battle seasonal depression, as laughter has been shown to have numerous mental and physical health benefits.
One of the main benefits of laughter is that it can release endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals. This can help to improve mood and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Laughing also increases the release of serotonin, a chemical that helps to regulate mood and can be beneficial for those with seasonal depression.
In addition, comedy shows provide a social outlet for people who may be feeling isolated or lonely. Being around others who are also laughing and having a good time can help to increase feelings of connection and belonging.
Furthermore, comedy shows are a great way to break up the monotony of daily life, giving people a chance to step away from their routine and enjoy something new and different. They can also be a form of escapism, allowing people to forget about their troubles and immerse themselves in a world of laughter and entertainment.
Overall, comedy shows offer a variety of benefits that can help to combat seasonal depression. They can improve mood, reduce stress, provide a social outlet, and offer a break from the everyday routine. So, if you're feeling down during these darker months, come to Lit Lounge this Saturday and experience Lit Comedy Jam hosted by DarkDeGary Comedy Group – it will certainly help to lift your spirits and stay lit - 'cause it's cold outside.
