Oh, it’s so true that laughter is the best medicine. I was watching old reruns of the Golden Girls the other night and nearly fell of the couch laughing until my stomach hurt. And, just last night, Joan Rivers had me in stitches laughing watching “Fashion Police”!
If laughter seems like a distant memory, then it’s time for the child inside to come out to play. In reality, you have so much more to enjoy than the child you used to be – and so many more reasons to laugh. You have that library of memories to be brought out and explored – years of joy, happiness and smiles.
We all have mistakes filed away – all good reason for laughter. There’s the accumulation of friendship – full of hugs, love and good times. There’s that treasure chest of experience to be dipped into – and so much more meant to bring a chuckle!
Laughter is said to be the best medicine and there’s lots of evidence that laughter does lots of good things for us. It reduces pain and allows us to tolerate discomfort.
The role laughter plays in intimate relationships is hugely underestimated and it really is the glue of good marriages and relationships.
It also synchronizes the brains of speaker and listener so that they are emotionally attuned.
Never overlook the secret of excitement, wonder, enthusiasm in all the good times yet to come.
So keep on laughing everyone!
