10 things to Notice about people who laugh a lot

.

★ツ 10 things I’ve noticed about people who laugh a lot from my personal experience.

.

1) They don’t age quickly - they actually look younger than their age.

2) Attract a lot of positive energy. When we feel good, we emit a powerful frequency that attracts back more good things.

3) Don’t usually take things to heart. E.g If you offend them, they don’t keep Malice. They just let things go, no grudges.

4) They will make you laugh even when you are sad. You just can’t help yourself. Sometimes, even when you have just had a good cry, when they come by, you’ll also have a very good laugh.

5) They are missed when they are not around. One day away from them would feel like one long week.

6) They are able to laugh at their mistakes and move on instead of being hard on themselves.As a teacher, if I write the wrong date on the white board in class and learners shout out to correct it. I smile and say “I was just checking you were all awake.”

7) Attract good opportunities first. They come to mind first. Example, for a nice new postion at work, or maybe someone has a holiday voucher / tickets they have no time to use. etc.

8) As they grow older, they have laughter lines – I don't call them wrinkles. (◕‿◕)

.

"Disease can not live in a body that’s in a healthy emotional state. Your body is casting off millions of cells every second and it’s also creating millions of new cells at the same time."

Bob Proctor.

9) Tend to recover quickly from diseases. (Stress, bitterness, depression can actually make people develop tumours).

In the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. (The Chapter - The Secret to Health) Two people shared a story. They both had terminal diseases and one of the things they did was to watch very funny movies. Within months they were cured from their diseases. (They were Cathy Goodman and Norman Cousins). Our mind/thoughts are so powerful.

.

10. There is one negative thing. It's not easy to tell when people who laugh a lot are hurting inside, as they cover up the pain with their laughter. So, we need to be very observant. Some people laugh a lot on the outside, but cry on the inside.

Overall, you can see that Laughter is definitely good for you! ٩(•̮̮̃•̃)۶

Food for Thought.

Life is so much more enjoyable when we laugh. Sometimes it's hard, and it's a daily practice for me - I've always been quite serious so sometimes it's quite challenging - but it makes the day and those moments so much better. It makes life worth living! Great list! Voted up - interesting - awesome :)

ComfortB profile image

ComfortB 4 years ago from Bonaire, GA, USA

Beautiful hub Lady_E! I absolutely, possitively agree with this a 100%.

I laugh a lot. My kids even said the one reason they like hanging with me is that I always make them laugh and feel better no matter what.

Growing up, I was surrounded by women who laugh a lot. My mom, aunts etc. The truth is I never thought of me that way until I heard it.

And yes, I do have my pains, which I hardly talk about. And if I do talk about them, it's usually so I can help somebody bear their pain.

I love #4, but from my experience of those who laugh a lot around me, I'll say that "They will make you laugh even when 'They' are sad".

Voted Beautiful.

its funny...i have always considered myself a fairly serious person, yet as i read your list it described me. when i am around others i tend to laugh more and people have always told me i have a beautiful, infectious laugh. they can't help but laugh with me. but it seems to take people to bring the laughter out of me. or my cats. i laugh a lot at them. i find this hub intriguing, because even though i knew the stuff, or at least some of it, i never thought it applied to me til i saw your list. very nice hub...voted up and shared.

pagesvoice profile image

pagesvoice 3 years ago from New York/Pennsylvania border

Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting. I am happy to report that I am a proud smiler and someone who laughs many times throughout the day. My wife tells everyone that having me around has her waking up to laughter and going to bed still laughing. I think it is better to laugh than cry and I really do practice what I preach. "The Secret" is on the end table by my chair and I refer to it often. I'm reminded of a local kids TV show when I was a child. The hostess would always start with, "Remember, a smile is the magic key to the wonderful Magic Toy Shop." If more of us could just look at life as a magic toy shop and smile more this would certainly be a better world.

Lady_E 3 years ago from London, UK Author

@PagesVoice - Hello Dennis, I enjoyed reading your comment and will share the words of that TV Hostess with kids I teach. So Beautiful. It's even better for kids to have the habit and take it into adulthood. (so many Teens live in depression these days)

divacratus profile image

divacratus 3 years ago from India

Loved going through this! I personally like being around people who are positive and who laugh a lot. It's irritating when people whine about anything and everything and I try to stay away from such people as far as possible. Personally, I have a very scary laugh so I am not sure whether I freak out people or give them a positive vibe!


Alma Cabase profile image

Alma Cabase 3 years ago from Philippines

Want to read something to laugh about? Early this morning, my mother rushed to wake me up saying she won a million dollars! Of course I was totally shocked. She then got my hand, led me to the computer and pointed on an ad. I can't stop laughing. I love my mom but moments like that never fail to give me a laugh. Well, she laughed with me after knowing all about it.

This hub is really great and inspiring!

Good day and God bless!

Ahhhh - a good laugh - it's my favorite pass time.

Just recently a few friends and I were discussing our thoughts on plastic surgery. Although there are far too many places on me that even a plastic surgeon can't help, the one characteristic I wouldn't change are the laugh lines around the corners of my eyes.

Great hub

I'm not saying this in a boastful manner whatsoever because I dislike bragging, but I live my life this way. Good job on this hub, you are so right!! I fall into nearly every one of the categories above. Although I can't speak for every category because I am not sure that I'm the first person someone thinks of for a job position, but the rest I relate to. I love to laugh, If I'm in a bad mood I watch stand-up comedians just so that I laugh. I'm almost always happy in life and I portray that in public. People like to be around me for the most part because I'm positive and happy. Don't get me wrong I have my days, but I try to be happy and positive. After all, you only live once:)

MissJamieD profile image

MissJamieD 3 years ago from Minnes-O-ta

You're right Lady E. People often ask me how I can get over things so quickly. I've always been like that. Sometimes to a fault. But I don't want to waste a minute of my short life on this earth, using my energies that should be used for happiness. I forgive quickly and easily because that's what I expect from others if I make a trivial mistake.

superfly47 3 years ago from Canada

Youth laugh a lot more than adults do. If adults laughs a lot it can make them look younger as adults subconsciously associate lots of laughter with being young.

Laughter is good for stress relief and people who laugh a lot tend to be easy going so they accumulate less stress than the average person.

These are two possible explanations for why people who laugh a lot tend to look younger.

I loved this article about laughter and really subscribe to it......even as I was reading it, it was putting a smile on my face. I hope to be a person that laughs a lot.

I often watch old style comedy programmes on T.V. and really enjoy watching all the family join in with a great guffaw!

I think laughter can really bring us together. A sense of humour is a great thing and needs to be nurtured and developed. Perhaps if you stop laughing you get out of practice!

Thanks for making me think about this!

Lady....Powerful! I couldn't agree more! I grew up in a home of laughter......our Dad being a born comedian. My sister and I could make each other laugh like no one else......and we both have adult children who have inherited the laughter gene.

Your points are so accurate.....I know, because I live my life this way as well.

There is plenty of time and enough circumstances that can cause us sadness and tears. They come in life....without invitation. So we feel the pain and get through the trials and sorrow.....holding on to those we love.

When the darkness fades and life must go on......we cannot allow grief to consume us and steal precious moments that remain.

Happiness, smiles, love and laughter......better than any medicine or a dozen kinds of therapy!!!!....UP+++ tweeted & pinned.

Hi Lady E. Laughter is great, I try to indulge whenever possible. I find that it does help to not hold grudges and see the light side of things. Thanks. Voted up

Lady E....Very timely that this hub of yours has shown up in my thread today......Just this past Sat & Sun, I had 2 family reunions.....my maternal side and then my paternal side. They were both one laugh fest after another. I'm telling you, people from outside our family, we're pretty sure, think we are a gang of air heads......and please understand we couldn't care less about that.

We feel no need to explain that in fact, we are all sane, well-educated, proper when necessary......but we KNOW how and when to have fun.

The thing is.....for the first half of our lives we loved to laugh and be happy and now.....we reminisce about all those past good times and laugh even harder.

We've had more than our share of sorrows, hurdles and trauma.....those times cannot be avoided. The way we see it I guess, that's all the more reason to embrace our share of FUN...

At the close of the reunion from my mother's side of the family.....we all went down to the beach and formed a circle......we read off the list of all of our departed & much loved family members......and sent off a Japanese Lantern into the sky........hugged and kissed one another Good-Bye while smiling and wiping away tears.

That's what I call wonderful memories..........

I agree with all your observations. I love it when people can make me laugh. I've one friend I virtually never fail to laugh with when we are together, and she is very special to me for this and other reasons. Well done.

I agree with your list. Laughter gets me through the day. There isn't a day that my husband and I don't laugh. Like the Bible says, laughter does good like a medicine.

I love the idea of calling wrinkles laughter lines:). No need for botox. Also, No. 10 is very true. Wonderful article.
