Give this experiment a try for one day. When you get out of bed, laugh out loud. I'm not talking about a little fake laugh. Give it a big belly laugh. Your family will think you are crazy but if you do a good enough job they will laugh right along with you. It's like a yawn, it's hard to resist. Now as you go through your day remember to smile/laugh as often as possible. If someone pulls out in front of you in traffic just smile. I know that one is hard but give it a try. Try to train yourself to smile instead of becoming agitated over small things. At the end of the day ask yourself if it was a good day. Odds are you will feel more relaxed and in good spirits. What can it hurt? give it a try.
Laughter is truly good for you. Here is an excerpt from the web site HelpGuide.org.
Laughter is good for your health
- Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
- Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
- Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
- Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect your against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.
