Who looks after you? (Part 3)

Children laughing copyBelly laugh

My kids love to laugh. I’m sure you can remember those times when you were young and you laughed so hard your belly hurt and you thought you might have an accident! If you can’t remember that of course just watch children when they laugh uncontrollably – it’s amazing.

There are times around our dinner table when I’m not in a laughing mood! Kids never know when to stop – that’s the point I suppose – they are so uninhibited in that moment that they can’t stop themselves. I love that.

So my second tip is belly laugh – as hard as possible and as often as possible! Laughter is known to be good for healing – there are even laughter clubs now for those who need help with finding things to laugh about or ways to release their inhibitions.

So when thinking about how to keep ourselves sane laughter is a good component of that. How can you bring laughter more into your every day life? Here’s some suggestions:

  • Watch a funny movie or TV show
  • Go to a comedy club 
  • Read the funny pages
  • Seek out funny people
  • Share a good joke or a funny story
  • Check out your bookstore’s humour section
  • Host game night with friends
  • Play with a pet 
  • Go to a “laughter yoga” class
  • Act daft around your children
  • Do something silly
  • Make time for fun activities (e.g. Bowling, miniature golf, karaoke)

And have fun – if you don’t belly laugh that’s – you will certainly feel better for looking at the lighter things in life.
