That's a very sensible thought about laughter, reminds me of my Dad's funny stories too. "Pretty wrinkles" yes that did me, I absolutely agree with that. My husband often comments on my laughter wrinkles on my nose, he says it's pretty. hehe...
Nellieanna, I LOVE your "makes prettier wrinkles than frowning" remark! So true, but I never thought of that!
Wow! Faking laughter is one of the games I start with my twins grandchildren. Whenever we meet or call our greeting is a fake laughter and that triggers real and resounding series of laughter. Happiness is contagious and laughter is the best vehicle
I have heard of laughter yoga here too. I do believe it helps in all the ways you mentioned. I know I feel better when I laugh. Do it for health!
I have not seen even a healthy one but I think I can laugh when I see one.
Two hormones beta-endorphins and HGH-human growth hormone help prevent cancer by increasing the strength of the immunity system and reduce stress hormones, according to study. These benefits of laughing go with a balanced social and financial life.
HarmonyLinn, am smiling while reading your answer; I can't imagine myself not laughing in a day whether being with friends or alone reading something or watching TV or seeing birds and things in nature that are spectacular for me in a given time.
Yes, some people have talents to make others laugh.
That is a very commendable attitude. If only more and more people can see the "fortune" that laughter eventually brings into our lives then there would be less sufferings and broken hearts.
Yes. We can consider ourselves lucky if we have people around laughing with us. The benefits we get from laughing cannot be under estimated.
Am happy for you lindalou1963, spontaneous laughing lightens our day. Thanks for sharing.
I know the feeling, laughing a lot helps strengthen any relationship, serious or passing. Keep it up er... hehe...more.
Go on with your badself freak-a-leak. I love it.
You rock...such a great attitude and a wonderful sense of humor.
Hahahahahahaha...am actually laughing... it makes my day to laugh, I don't question why...any way am alone, nobody sees me and nobody would say am crazy...hehe.
Who cares if people think you're crazy...have at it girl...don't hold back. I'm laughing like a crazed hyena as I type this...of course the woman on the elevator with me doesn't think it's too funny...but oh well.
That's a perfect attitude. Sharing smile and laughter is actually like planting good seeds that would yield products to live happily for the rest of our existence.
That is a good comment. To each his own hence I ask; it's good to hear opposing ideas. Some people laugh a lot, just like me and some don't but we are all children of this Universe. Be happy and have a merry heart, try it and see the difference.
That's a very honest statement. I laugh spontaneously so when I see others laughing without me knowing what they are laughing at then I would still laugh, not for their reasons but for seeing them happy.
Wow! That's new to me; well-said, I can't help but agree. Laughter is the sweetest and most uplifting feeling.
That's right, sometimes life seems unbearable and our mood fluctuates yet in spite of that, we can still choose to laugh if we want to.
Exactly, and there are a lot of serious things within ourselves that are oftentimes confusing, so better laugh them off with friends and love ones or with something else and let the merry heart carry us through...its magic.
Yes, sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself...what can you do? Better to laugh than cry, right?
