According to the old proverb, inspired by a passage from the Bible, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Quite honestly, this may be one of the truest sentences ever spoken in the English language! Think back to the last time you felt rotten, then had a good laugh and suddenly everything felt a little better. It may have been yesterday, last week, or last year. Either way, you remember it because it picked you up when you were feeling down and needed to smile. That’s what laughter does.
Relieving the stress of work is easy when you share a joke or funny story with co-workers, especially since laughter is contagious. It helps build camaraderie within your team and keeps friendships solid. Beating stress at home can also be solved by laughing, from a story told by your spouse that makes you smile, or something silly your child does that fills the moment with absolute hilarity. And don’t forget your pets – there’s no end to the goofy things dogs or cats do every day! You can also take a moment to reflect on something you did during the day that you can now find funny. I mean, if you can’t laugh at yourself, who can?
