Laughing Through Life

IMG_4610

I think we are all a bit too serious in life.  Wouldn’t life be so much more enjoyable if we laughed more often?  According to Psychology Today, the average four year old laughs 300 times a day, while the average adult only laughs a total of fifteen times.  Isn’t that depressing?  How is it that we could decrease our amount of laughter by the hundreds?  More importantly, how can we fix this?

Well laughter isn’t exactly hard to find.  Laughter is everywhere, we just have to be able to see it or even create it.  To begin with, you should learn to love your laugh.  After all, it is what makes you unique.  Secondly, chime into positive laughter, even in you don’t think someone else’s humor is all that funny. (As long as it does not offend anyone, of course)  People often use their humor to make other people happy, so when you chime in and give a little chuckle, it is sure to make them feel more confident and it will lead to your happiness as well.  Most of the time a fake laugh will eventually turn into a full out ROFL moment.  Wherever you are in life, try to surround yourself with positive people that share the same joy and laughter with you.  Lastly, try to crack some jokes or use your dry sense of humor every day to lighten the mood.  It doesn’t have to be all that funny, but it is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.  Trust me, I tell cheesy puns all the time!

So, now that you know how to create more laughter in your life, you should know why it belongs there.  Laughter is the best medicine.  Laughter is so amazing for the body both mentally and physically.  Laughter decreases stress.  It increases happiness and intimacy.  Laughter also boosts energy.  It’s the new caffeine!  Laughter also decreases pain and strengthens the immune system.  Lastly, laughter comes easy and FREE! 🙂

I can’t think of a healthier and better way to live than laughing through life.  Laughter is simply timeless.  Always seek to find and create laughter, for it is the sunbeam of the soul.

How often do you laugh?  Do you wish you could laugh more?  I look forward to your response!  Thank you for reading!

Namaste.

  1. I love to laugh. Especially at my sons dog. A constant source of amusement. I also smile at everyone I see at work. I work in a hospital so a big smile can go along way. And finally, I like to end my day laughing in bed. It leads to a good nights sleep and pleasant dreams 😄

  2. Great message that deserves to be shared to everybody.

    Laughter is also contagious, and this is probably why we laugh louder, harder and more happily when we watch comedy with friends and family compared to on one’s own.

    Laughing also practices and rejuvenates our face muscles, that means, pretty faces are and must be the smiley one.

    Ending note is that you have a beautiful smile 🙂
