Laugh long and often...

By laughing frequently and taking a lighter view of life, you will find that life is much more enjoyable and fun. Researchers are discovering that laughter enhances the immune system and promotes improved physiology. 
Recent medical research has also confirmed that laughter enhances the blood flow to the body’s extremities and improves cardiovascular function,  plays an active part in the body’s release of endorphins and other natural mood elevating and pain-killing chemicals, improves the transfer of oxygen and nutrients to internal organs.
Here are eight tips to help you have more laughter in your life: 
  • Learn to laugh at yourself. 
    Recognize how funny some of your behaviour really is, especially your shortcomings or mistakes. We all have little idiosyncrasies or behaviours that are unique to us that we can recognize and enjoy. Do not take yourself too seriously.
  • Inject humor any time it is appropriate.
    People love to laugh. Get a joke book and learn how to tell good jokes. Humour and laughter make life more enjoyable.
  • Read comics that you find funny and follow it.
    Humour varies in each and every individual. What one may find funny, the other person may not, but the comics or “funny papers” have something for everybody. Read them thoroughly to find a comic strip that you find particularly funny and look for it every day or week.
  • Watch comedies on television.
    With modern cable systems, how easy it is to find something funny on television. When you need a good laugh, try to find something you can laugh at on TV.
  • Watch a funny movie with a friend.
    If you see a funny movie with someone, you will find yourself laughing harder and longer than if you had seen the same scene by yourself. Laughing together helps build good relationships.
  • Listen to comedy audiotapes in your car while driving.
    Check your local record store, bookstore, video store, or library for recorded comedy routines of your favourite comics. 
  • Play with kids.
    Kids really know how to laugh and play. If you do not have kids of your own, spend time with your nieces, nephews, or neighborhood children with whose families you are friendly. 
  • Ask yourself, what is funny about this situation?
    Many a times we find ourselves in seemingly impossible situation, but if we can laugh about them, somehow they become enjoyable or at least tolerable. Many times people say, this is something that you will look back on and laugh about. Well, why wait? Find the humour in the situation and enjoy a good laugh immediately.
