Never dismiss the power of a good laugh. Yep, deliberate laughing can change your life dramatically. Sometimes you may have to go against the ‘norm’ in order to lighten up and see what’s comical about a situation. But when you do, and you learn to laugh at things not usually considered funny, you’ll feel much less stressed and a lot happier.
Here are four experiences where it helps to laugh:
1. Learn to laugh at how ridiculous you can be when life starts getting too dramatic. A good laugh can helps you to relax and put a different perspective on the situation, which puts an end to the act.
2. Learn to laugh at yourself when you’re feeling awkward and out of place. Laughing will help you take yourself less seriously. This will help open up your mind to ideas and behaviour that is fun and attractive. What follows is the right and perfect responses, no matter what the conditions may be.
3. Learn to open your heart to laughter when things seem bleak. When you give yourself to laughter, you become more flexible. This helps you to see things differently, and the fresh view will also inspire you come up with solutions that make life happier.
4. Learn to laugh at the insanity of whining and complaining. You don’t stop laughing because you feel down – you feel down because you start whining. The only way to turn that frown upside down is to turn your attitude around. A laugh is a smile busting wide open. Learn to laugh as often as you blink, and you’ll find yourself smiling as long as you think.
