Laughter is everywhere. So much so that we often do not even notice it. First, laughter has a strong connection with humour. Most of us seek out laughter and people who make us laugh, and it is what we do when we gather together as groups relaxing and having a good time. But laughter also plays an important role in making sure we interact with each other smoothly. It provides social bonding signals that allow our conversations to flow seamlessly between topics; to help us repair conversations that are breaking down; and to end our conversations on a positive note.
