Laughter is the best medicine. Laughing brings the mind, body and spirit into balance. When we laugh together it connects us. We form an emotional bond. Laughing unites people.
You must look for the humor in yourself and everyday events. Don’t take yourself so seriously. A playful point of view promotes laughter and happiness. Have you ever noticed that laughter is contagious? Especially if someone has a particularly genuine and heartfelt laugh. One of those deep roars that makes you join in with the silly giggles or at least smile.
What about when you’re in the midst of a stress-filled situation and tempers are rising? The tension is so thick you could literally cut it with a knife. If someone starts laughing it immediately changes the mood. The bad vibes diminish. The atmosphere shifts and lightens. Try it the next time you find yourself in one of those dreadful experiences.
Did you know there are classes on “laugh therapy?” There are even “laughing” meditation and yoga classes. Why? Because it really works! It makes you feel good.
There are many benefits of laughter. Here are a few:
- Improves mood

LAUGH EVERYDAY! You’ll live longer!
