A man is not necessarily intelligent because he has plenty of ideas, any more than he is a good general because he has plenty of soldiers. The most wasted day of all is that during which we have not laughed. ~ Sebastien Roch-Nicolas Chamfort ~
The importance of laughter for your mental and physical health cannot be overstated. Learning to laugh out loud can help you put things back into perspective. It can help you get a grip on situations that are causing you to be anxious. Laughter can be the stimulus that helps you enjoy life again.
Laugh at yourself. Share your embarrassing moments with your friends. The best way to take yourself less seriously is to talk about times when you took yourself too seriously. Don’t go a day without laughing. Think of it like exercise or breakfast and make a conscious effort to find something each day that makes you laugh. Smile more. Smiling is the beginning of laughter and like laughter, it’s contagious.
