The scientific definition of laughter is "a consistent, rhythmic, convulsive expiration with an open glottis and vibrating vocal cords, often accompanied by exposed teeth and facial expressions". However, this does not explain what laughter means to us. The bottom line is that laughter is medically beneficial.
Laughter creates or restores a positive emotional climate and a sense of connectedness between two people. In fact, some researchers believe that laughter's primary function is to bring people together - the more social a person is and the more social support a person receives, the more likely laughter will result from those social relationships. Laughter and play together are an integral part of a strong and healthy relationship.
Here are some ways to bring more humor and laughter into your life with some funny photos to go with:
Smile: A smile is the beginning of laughter. Like laughter, it's contagious. When you see someone or see something fun, practice smiling!
Count your blessings: make the list literally. The simple act of contemplating the good things in your life will rid you of the negative thoughts that get in the way of humor and laughter!
When you hear laughter all the time: People love to share something funny because it gives them a chance to laugh again and feel the humor in it. When people hear laughter, they look for it and ask, "What's so funny?"
Spend time with funny and fun people: These are people who easily laugh at themselves and the absurdities of life and who regularly find humor in everyday life. Their funny point of view and their laughs are infectious!!
Bring humor into the conversation: Ask people: What's the funniest thing that happened to you today? This week? In your life?
Laugh at yourself: share your uncomfortable moments. Try to laugh at situations rather than complain about them: look for humor in bad situations, the irony and absurdity of life. This will help you improve the mood and mood of those around you.
Surround yourself with comforting memories: keep toys on your desk or in your car. Hang a fun poster in your office. Choose a computer screensaver to make you laugh. Photo frames that you and your family can have fun.
Stay on top of everything: many things are out of our control, so get the most out of the situation and find the positive in the situation.
Coping with Stress: Stress is a major barrier to humor and laughter.
Take care and imitate kids: they are experts in games, they take life lightly and they laugh!!
Here's a simple recipe for healthy living: Thirty minutes of exercise at least 3 times a week and 15 minutes of laughter every day. The bottom line is that laughter is probably the best medicine out there right now.
