As soap is to the body, so laughter is to the soul.
— Jewish Proverb
Laughter is not a once-in-a while event – it is a lifestyle – a way to look at life.
Laughter allows you to see the good in the midst of our troubles. It helps you move through difficult times. It allows you to focus on things to be thankful for.
Laughter and humor take the edge off any crisis or adversity you are facing. It allows you to see a bigger picture.
“The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow.” -H. G. Wells
One of the greatest benefits you will ever have when going through difficult times is the ability to laugh at yourself and your circumstances.
Research indicates that laughter has a positive effect on our brains – it literally changes the brain.
Even in the midst of distress and anxiety, we can find something that can make us smile or laugh. We can find that drop of humor in any difficult situation, and when that happens, the resulting laughter can instantly transport us to another world.
