What soap is to the body laughter is to the soul. Yiddish Proverb
I’ve visited three Toastmaster clubs in two days as part of my duties as Area Director, I’ve laughed hard at each of them. Tonight is my home clubs contest and I expect more great laughs.
We are told humor is the best medicine. If we laugh the world laughs with us if we cry, we cry alone, doesn’t this seem to be true? Laughter is infectious and there is nothing like a good laugh to make us feel better.
When I got home I watched some British clips on YouTube with my husband that had us doubled over laughing. They are called “Loose Women” and if you want a good laugh, look for them.
People who are able to get their message across to us effectively often use humor. The more comfortable we become the more our natural humor surfaces. The more we want to impress the stiffer we seem to be.
Laughter is said to improve our immune system, and in this season of colds and flues may be just what we need. Laughter also blocks pain. It definitely helps us deal with difficult situations, and when we are in a tense situation if we can laugh everything seems easier.
Every time you are able to find some humor in a difficult situation you win. Unknown
We may not get someone else’s sense of humor. Sometimes my husband and daughter are almost writhing on the floor in laughter and I hardly see what is funny. She says the same thing happens at her work where she is the one with the wry smile on her face and everyone else is killing themselves laughing. Other times we all get each other’s humor.
Not taking ourselves too seriously is another way of telling ourselves to find the humor in situations. It is great if we can laugh at ourselves but is bad form when we laugh at the expense of others.
We can find funny stories, jokes, shows, and talks to bring humor into our life. We can make an effort to bring more humor into our lives. Do we look at the bright side of things? Often there is humor in the worst life has to offer us. Finding humor is a way to get through the dark times. Sharing a laugh with someone brings us closer.
Have you had a good laugh today? Are you finding the funny in life?
Laughter will always be the best medicine, silence will always be the best revenge, and love will always be all you need. Unknown
Laughter is an instant vacation. Milton Berle
Always find a reason to laugh. It may not add years to your life but will surely add life to your years. Unknown
