When was the last time you laughed?

At any gathering, I always prefer to be at a safe corner where I can be myself without having to worry of unremitting conversations. I admit, I don’t have a good sense of humor and I don’t have impressive and really hilarious jokes that would make you laugh. In short, I am a boring companion to those who love elongated chatting. I am reclusive and I can survive isolation. It doesn’t really mean I have an empty social life. Nevertheless, I can make enlightening pleasantries as well.

Most people’s first impression of me is always “strict” and “unapproachable”. Well, looks can be deceiving and it should not be used as the measure of one’s judgment as to knowing the person inside and out. At some point though, I have my own tendency of austerity—showing off when extremely provoked. Anyways, this is not really about me. This is about emancipating the negative vibes latently dwelling within us. This is about keeping our heart at its best state. How?


Laugh with all your heart

One best way I know is through laughter. Just find time to laugh. Laughter is the best medicine, as made famous by Reader’s Digest. This line, indeed, is a proven reality that we can always wrestle pessimism with positivity. Laughter is one instrument to help us live our lives to the fullest. I can’t imagine a person who lives his entire life in the absence of laughter. That should be gloomy and, maybe, scary. While you can still enjoy life with all the people and the things you love most, laugh a lot.


Share yourself with other people

A journey to self-discovery must begin with some people involved, at least. When you connect yourself with others, you will find an avenue to know yourself better. Share moments of fun with others. Even if you were not born a buffoon, there would be instances when you will be able to find yourself inspired to share jokes and funny stories—a good way to laugh with others. There would be some days when your mad sense of humor was highlighted. What you need to do is create a network and through your interactions with others, you will absolutely feel more light-hearted than usual.


Learn to love yourself more

The gateway to happiness is self-love. Stop being despondent about your imperfect self and for some cliche reasons. You don’t have to look for yourself in someone else, because you are different in many ways. Loving yourself is a big responsibility, but you will get better with it. If you intend to love someone, you should learn to love yourself first. Loving yourself means taking care of your mind, body and soul. Think positive, eat well and healthy and nourish your spirit with the Words of God. If you have loved yourself, love it even more. Don’t allow it to spoil, but instead, feed it with laughter and happiness. That way, pessimism can never grow from within you.


Don’t forget to laugh

There are many people who are too diligent and steadfast that they strap themselves to their jobs. They forgot to laugh, or worse than that, they toil in excruciating silence. If you were in the mood to make a silly banter with a colleague, however, it would not be a problem. Well, just keep things in equilibrium and deliver what is expected from you. You can always inject work with judicious funny tales or short pick-up lines just to create an ambiance of happiness and comfort. When you are at home, you can always share your ludicrous stories with family members and see if you could get someone to stay with you until the wee hours.

What laughter can do with your heart? Well, when you laugh, you’ll feel better. When you feel better, you’ll feel good. When you feel good, your heart is absolutely safe. However, you must also impose to yourself a healthy lifestyle. Otherwise, you’ll die young, though smiling.

      We are on the same boat, Linda. I also follow rising comedians in social media to get a good laugh out of their videos.

      But actually, there are a lot of ways to find laughter. We introverts are good at finding the sources. (Wink)!

      It’s good to see you here, Linda. Thanks

      I'm an introvert myself and don't socialize as much as I should, but laughter is so good for the soul. I'm always watching comedies on tv or funny videos on YouTube, anything to get a laugh out of me. It reduces stress and makes me feel good! Thanks for your writing.

      Laughter and positivity seem to have good health benefits. Whereas negativity and feeling sad can affect health badly.

      You sound like me in social situations, always off in a corner by myself, looking rather stern. Looks can, for sure, be deceiving.
