Question: How much laughter is in your day? Not, yesterday, not last week, but every day in general.
Answer: If not much, you’re on a bus to bleakness.
The most miserable people I have known rarely laugh. My observation is they generally have more sickness than people who do make laughter part of their day. The non laugher will claim that the sickness caused their misery, but if you do a historical check, their misery was in place long before the malady.
Laughter is a natural thing that some have been conditioned out of. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can condition yourself right back in.
You can learn to laugh just like you can learn piano. Both take practice.
Laughter is medicine and it is worth relearning.
If you recognize that you’re morose, just think of anything that’s made you laugh in the past. That’s a smile starting point. Seek out things that make you laugh. This will start giving you more radar for what’s funny to you and you will begin to see it everywhere.
Most importantly, learn to laugh at yourself. When you perfect that skill, you finally discover that you’re not perfect because to think you were is laughable.
If you have been labeled “Serious,” that’s code for miserable. You need to learn to laugh.
It doesn’t cost anything and the benefits are too numerous to list.
Bottom line: Laughter is the remedy for misery.
I realize I’m stating the obvious here to people who already have made laughter a part of their life. This is more an attempt at an intervention for those who live under a cloud. My request to you is to LOL!
All the best,
