Don’t take life so seriously, no body gets out alive anyways.
Today’s Friday Fuel is dedicated to one of my most favorite things in life…LAUGHING! Nothing compares to a good laugh. A day without laughter is a day lost in life. The benefits of laughter extend to your physical, emotional and social well-being.
Laughter is good for your health! It can lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, decrease inflammation and boost your overall sense of well-being. We have all heard that “laughter is the best medicine”, it’s true!
Laughter and joy facilitate relationship building with other people. It brings people together and develops instant connections. When we are having fun and laughing with family, friends or co-workers we are creating an environment that is joyful and positive. Who wouldn’t want to live and work in that kind of place?
During moments of joy we have some of our greatest discoveries, thoughts and creations. Our mind and body are at ease allowing us to relax and create. Laughter opens us up to new possibilities and helps us get things done. When we enjoy what we are doing and who we are doing it with, we are far more productive. Laughter at work is critical to the team dynamic and productivity. We need to find more ways to bring joy into the workplace!
Have I convinced you that laughter is the BEST, yet? If yes, let’s talk about ways you can incorporate some scheduled laugh time into your day.
You’ve all heard me mention my obsession with mornings and the importance of a morning routine that sets your energy and attitude for the day. For me, laughter and joy are a part of that routine and I hope to encourage you to make it a part of yours! I wake up, make my coffee, meditate for 5-10 minutes and then hit up YouTube to find a short funny video to get the joy juices flowing. It’s a simple way to start the day with a smile and some chuckles and doesn’t take much time or energy.
Today I am sharing a few of my favorite videos…check them out, laugh it up and pass it on! Spread good vibes!
My other moments of laughter come from this clown right here…he never fails to bring a smile to my face. Enjoy!
