Do You Laugh Enough?

Laugh factory, Taya and Campbell When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?

Quick personal story: a time in my life I don't care to repeat again, I lost my laugh. I remember the day it came back -- I had come back to life as well.

The g-d point? Laughing matters! It's a natural endorphin, it's a relaxant, it connects us to people at a deep level, it's an expression of who we are and what we care about -- and it's just a helluva lot of fun.

 Kids laugh hundreds of times a day.

 Adults -- well, hardly that much.

 It's hard to force yourself to laugh more -- however:

 If you could use a bit more laughter in your life, ask yourself a few questions:

  • What kinds of people can you spend more time with to up your changes of laughing?
  • What can you do that's outrageous and surprising to make someone else laugh? 'Cause you gotta get started someplace!
  • What if you gave yourself a little plot of space where nothing serious could enter. How would that invite in some devil-may-care playfulness and laughing-til-you-pee?

Let's face it -- life is much more fun when we can all laugh at ourselves.

 Plus, funnest core workout ever.

Here's to your deep big beautiful laughing experiment.
