What Makes You Laugh?
"Laughter is an instant vacation!" - Milton Berle
When was the last time you laughed? I'm not talking about a chuckle or a smirk. I'm talking about a good, hard belly laugh. Remember the last time you laughed until you cried - doesn't just the memory of that feel good? Some statistics tell us that children laugh 300 times a day, adults only 15. Others say children laugh 146 times a day and adults 4. Whatever the actual numbers are, it's clear that we, as adults, are not having much fun! And I'm willing to bet that many adults aren't making the statistical average these days - even as low as it is especially if they listen to the news and get caught up in negative conversations, of which there are plenty to be had if you succumb. Laughter is good for the soul and the body. Science tells us that laughing has many health benefits, among them the release of endorphins and decreased blood pressure and stress hormones (70% of diseases are stress-related). But laughing is not something you should do because it's good for you - it's something you should do because it feels good. Actually, it feels great and it provides an instant connection to the Flow. We know that deciding can seem quite serious at times, but recognize that we want you to be light about your life - don't take it so seriously. You can almost always find humor in a situation if you look for it. What makes you laugh? Rent it, watch it, read it. Who makes you laugh? Call him, meet her for lunch, play with your kids or your pets. Lighten up - feeling better is just a belly laugh away! Truly Caring for Your Success! Dr. Robert Anthony
