Learn to Laugh

We’ve all heard about how laughter is the best medicine, and it’s not far from the truth. Laughter releases hormones that make you feel good about yourself, relieves depression, and spreads positive waves to the people around you. Although it may be hard to do sometimes, laughter somehow magically makes any situation better. Whether you’ve been embarrassed, hurt, or disappointed, the giggles will help you soothe your wounds much more effectively than the bowl of ice cream.

Everyone’s known that horrifying feeling when they’ve taken a spill in a crowded hallway or spilled coffee on their white blouse. The dreaded sniggers rise from the people around you and you start to blush. However, don’t freak out. Instead, laugh along. Make a nonchalant remark like ‘Oh, clumsy me.’, and get on with what you were doing before. Making a scene will help your incident stick around in people’s minds much longer than if you act mature and laugh at your mistake.

So you’ve broken up with your significant other, or you had a fight with your parents. Before you take out that box of chocolates however, call up your funniest friend to cheer you up and to talk. Of course, if the hurt was significant, you may take some time to grieve, but only to an extent. You know the saying ‘You’ll be laughing about this in a year’? Why wait that long? If you start laughing about the situation right now, you’ll recover much faster.

Disappointment happens to the best of us, and there’s no point in wallowing in it. Instead, take your mind off things by getting together a group of friends and go out to do something fun. Laugh lots (even at the corniest jokes), and just enjoy the moment. You’ll bounce back quicker, and feel more empowered to get out there again. The more you laugh, the more friendly you seem, and the more opportunities will come your way.

Laughing is not the easiest thing to do all the time. Sometimes, our instinct is to cry or scream, which is healthy, but only to a certain point. The more you wallow, the more you drive people away. Have you ever heard the saying ‘You get what you give’? Well, if you continuously act sullen or depressed, you leave no room for positive energy to come in. If you open your heart and laugh, however, positivity will flow to you, making your life happier and more successful.
