Life is serious business but if we come with a sense of humour it turns out to be pretty fun! Humor is infectious; the sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy.
Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in your body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh.
Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope and connects you to others. It also keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. More than just a respite from sadness and pain, laughter gives you the courage and strength to see with new eyes. Even in the most difficult of times, a laugh or even a smile can go a long way toward making you feel better.
Humor takes you to a higher place where you can view the world from a more relaxed, positive, creative, joyful, and balanced perspective. Best of all, it is fun, free, and easy to use. Here are a few giggles to get you started!
