Memorize a Quote or Two

Short, humorous quotes can help others to feel better when a rough and difficult day happens.

I always make it a point to memorize a few short, humorous quotes along with a clever and funny joke. When an opening comes along in the conversation I will pull out a quote from my mind. This helps to bring a smile to the other person and hopefully stir up some of those wonderful endorphins.

Conclusion ~ Benefits of Laughter

Laughter positively affects many aspects of our life, including our health, well-being and energy, which leads to a healthier and better quality of life.

When we laugh, it causes certain chemical changes to our body. It has been proven that as we laugh, we release enzymes and hormones that are helpful for normal functioning of various organs. This is due to a connection between laughing and stimulation of brain and different glands Our immune system also becomes stronger.

In addition, laughter helps relieve stress, depression, anxiety, grief, anger and irritation. Laughing also decreases pain by releasing a hormone known as endorphins. It improves our attentiveness, pulse and heart rate.

So basically, we look better, feel better, live better and longer when we laugh. My prescription for you - laugh out loud 3 x every day for the rest of your beautiful life.

      When I read your story with the shy pupil, then I was touched, - your writing had depth. That I'm missing here when you write about laughing and also in those jokes you are quoting. I like to tell a joke in certain moments, when a situation needs a light and uplifting energy and then it is astonishing to observe how the laughter in an instant changes and clears up the atmosphere. The question is, if the energy comes from the joke or from the person who is telling the joke... That's probably the reason why most jokes, when one reads them, are not so funny. Anyway, it is good to think about it and so one can use this tool in a more effective way, because one is more conscious about using it.

      I made a video some time ago, what I believe is funny and might make you laugh, so this is my 'thank you' to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Se9Ry3VNDU
