Humor is a prelude to faith; and laughter is the beginning of prayer.
~ Reinhold Niebuhr
If we don’t laugh, we shall surely cry…at least that is something I heard that rings true for me, when dealing with major loss. At my father’s funeral, we sat around and told his old jokes, life stories, and fishing tales for 3 hours…it was part of the grieving process…It may sound outrageous to some of you. That is ok. It helped us not despair, but to remember his finer hours. I say one good belly laugh per day….keeps me sane and healthy. Laughter releases the bodies natural endorphins (feel good hormones)…great as an anti-depressant.
Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, I will watch a comedy, read the cartoons, or watch cartoons on t.v…..I will laugh for Pete’s sake. I will have one laugh each day.
