The Most Wasted Day of All Is That During Which We Have Not Laughed – Sebastian R. N. Chamfort

When is the last time you had a good laugh?  I mean a true belly busting, can’t breathe laugh attack? Yesterday?  A week? A month? A year?  For many of us, when we really stop to think about it, the answer is far too long.  The struggles and stresses of everyday life can easily consume our thought patterns and keep us at an almost constant gaze toward the serious side of our day to day activities.

Don’t get me wrong – Life and how to live it is a serious matter.  It is littered with risk, peril, and challenge.  You can turn on the news at any given hour of the day and find stories of heartbreak and tragedy.  But for every negative story on the news, there are far more positive stories that will never be reported.  I’m not saying to just tune out or pretend that negative things don’t exist in this world, but understand that when you constantly feed your mind in the negative, it becomes increasingly harder to remember the good.

Because of this, I think it is extremely important for us to take time each day to seek out the good and find a good laugh.  Make it a point to search for humorous stories, videos, pictures or articles on a daily basis.  When you’re stuck in traffic or out and about running errands, play a game with yourself; look for something in your surroundings that can cause you to have a chuckle or bring a smile to your face.  This isn’t always possible, but the next time something unexpected happens to you, is there a way you could turn that event into a funny story? One of the most important skills we can develop is the ability to laugh at ourselves!  Allow yourself to loosen up for a bit and have a good laugh.  I mean is it even possible to not feel happier after laughing?

Studies have shown that laughter has been proven to boost our T-cell production, which are cells that specialize in immune system health.  Laughter also releases endorphins, our body’s natural pain killers.  So do yourself a favor and give it a try; laughter might truly be nature’s best medicine!

  1. True! Forgetting the good to remember the bad is stupid! Let’s laugh! ???????? good one theseeds4life!

  2. I guess the reasons why laughing is so special is that it’s become so rare because of the challenges we face on a daily bases. We need a reminder sometimes on the positive sides of life❤️

  3. Even a small smile can make us happy but that laughter truly provides us with happy memories. Great advice=)

  5. Of course laughter is the best medicine! In that light, please allow me to share these funny/quirky jokes, which my friend emailed me! –

    My daughter asked me for a pet spider for her birthday, so I went to our local pet shop and they were $70. Forget it, I thought, I can get one cheaper off the web.

    I was at an ATM yesterday. A little old lady asked if I could check her balance, so I pushed her over.

    Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarfs are not Happy.

    My neighbour knocked on my door at 2:30 a m. Can you believe that…2:30 a m? Lucky for him I was still up practicing my Bagpipes.

    I was explaining to my wife last night that when you die you get reincarnated but must come back as a different creature. She said she would like to come back as a cow.
    I said “You’re obviously not listening”.

    The wife was counting all the nickels and dimes out on the kitchen table when she suddenly got very angry and started shouting and crying for no reason. I thought to myself, “She’s going through the change.”

    My girlfriend thinks that I’m a stalker. Well, she’s not exactly my girlfriend yet.

    An Asian fellow has moved in next door. He has travelled the world, swum with sharks, wrestled bears and climbed the highest mountain. It came as no surprise to learn his name was Bindair Dundat!
