Posts Tagged ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’

Did you know it’s National Humor Month?

How come no one tells me these things? I’m not good at discovering this info on my own in a timely manner. I usually figure these things out a week or so after the fact. Thank goodness I had the entire month to catch up on this one!

Laughter, as they say, is the best medicine, and something we need on a daily basis to be healthy and happy.

What makes you chuckle, giggle, smile, laugh until you cry?

Whatever it is, find some of it today and enjoy.

I’m pretty fortunate in that Captain Cavedweller keeps me very entertained. He finds it a big challenge to be serious, which means there is a lot of silliness and teasing that goes on at our house.

Despite the fact that we are both feeling sleep deprived and half-awake thanks to an onslaught of allergies, we laughed most of way to work on our drive in to work this morning. It is a rare day that he doesn’t say or do something that strikes me as funny.

Maybe you have a friend, a sibling, a co-worker who makes you laugh. Maybe you check out websites like A Joke A Day to get your giggle on. Maybe you see the humor in everyday things. Goodness knows the felines at our house provide a never-ended source of entertainment. (Then again, CC and I are easily entertained.)

Wherever, whatever or whomever makes you smile, spend some time today laughing. See if you don’t feel better for it.

“Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit.”

I read something this weekend that said the average person laughs only 15 times a day.

Then I started thinking… do I even get in 15 laughs a day?  Some days, probably not even close.

So I decided to challenge myself.  Starting today I am making it a goal to laugh at least 15 times a day, preferably more.  Before he left for work this morning, Captain Cavedweller made me laugh three times. Only 12 more to go to reach my goal!

You might be asking yourself, what’s the big deal about laughing? I’ll give it to you in a nutshell… laughter is like medicine except without the awful after taste or feeling bad.

Like a bad cold, though, humor is infectious. The sound of warm laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze.

Laughter increases happiness and ties people together.  Also, laughter triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter are proven to strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, laughter is fun, free, and easy to use. Laughter is a people magnet. You can take it with you wherever you go and share it all you want. The supply is limitless and the opportunities are endless.

I found an informative website that highlights all the great benefits of laughter. Check it out.

So who is with me?

Let’s see how many laughs we can get in today!
