It also helps to ease depression and anxiety. Have you heard about Norman Cousins? If you didn’t then you should. Norman suffered from Ankylosing Spondylitis which a chronic disease of axial skeleton. His disease was considered to be intractable however he fought it by training himself to laugh and taking huge amount of Vitamin C. And as a result, Norman managed to drive this disease into remission.
Laughing breaks all the invisible barriers as it can bring people together and help them establish strong connections by making them feel close to one another. Also, laughing reminds people that they are able to smile again and that a better perspective in life is returning. Sometimes laughing in the most unexpected times can bring relief and absolute joy in your life.
We only have today to live, so why not laugh and enjoy it? Why not open ourselves up to a good laugh and let it push our pain or sorrow out? Now that we are once again choosing how we feel, we have the power to opt for joy.
Can you imagine how the world would be if everyone is laughing every day? So why don’t you start with yourself today and do something that can make you laugh? It can be anything from watching a funny movie or stand-up comedy, playing with your friends or children, reading a comic book or finding a creative way to be silly.
