Self-Care Sunday Highlight: Laughter 

The age-old quote says “laughter is good for the soul”, and I couldn’t agree more. 

Ask yourself, when is the last time you laughed?  When is the last time something made you giggle uncontrollably.  Also, ask yourself how you felt after you had a good, hearty laugh. 

Whenever I laugh, it’s like medicine to numb the pain.  I’m a person who is always looking for a silver lining with my friends and family.  I strive to be optimistic all the time, and I try to find the humor in things.  Sometimes, a silly situation is all it takes to turn a mood around.  It reminds you that life isn’t too bad that you can’t smile.  It also helps to have friends in your life who know how to make you smile, even when they don’t realize it.   

This week, laugh. Laugh uncontrollably.  Laugh until it makes you cry.  Find a funny picture, reminisce on a memory, do a funky dance or sing a weird song.  Talk to someone who you know will bring you some positive energy and endless moments to smile about.  Do something that you know will make you laugh enough to remind you that life isn’t as bad as we make it seem sometimes.
