Laughter reduces stress.
How many times have your laughed or smiled today? I hear that children under the age of five smile or laugh up to 300 times a day. No kidding. You just have to take a look at the kids. Their joy and smiles / laughter will cheer you up; it's contagious. Conversely, an adult laughs maybe about 15 times a day. Some, not even that. They see only the worst in everything. That is so sad.
Here's a 2:02 minute video that will help you release some of the daily stress. Watch it a second time and you will pick up nuggets that you may have missed out the first time round.
I talk about having fun and using music to release stress in my stress management toolkit. Music, fun, a sense of humor brings on the smiles. Singing in a group helps too. Ever wonder why "kara oke" is so popular? Action item for today: Smile. Be happy. Do what you have to do, even if it means making funny faces at yourself in the mirror. If you want to tap into some laughter exercises, I have some prepared for you too!
Laughter Reduces Stress.
Smile when you wake up in the morning and let that set the tone for the day. Let that smile and gratitude sends blood to the organs and cells in your body and positive energy to everyone around you. Inject Humor and Recognition (HR) into your life and feel the difference!
Have a great weekend ahead 😉
