Let's Laugh Our Way To Health

  LET'S LAUGH OUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH
They say that laughter is the best medicine. And it can never be truer than that. Have we not enjoy the company of people with a good sense of humor? And haven't we felt so good after a good laugh? Laughter secretes a hormone that makes us feel good and euphoric. This hormone can also deaden the pain in our body.

But how can we evoke laughter if our situation is less than pleasant? We cannot laugh at the expense of others. Those who do that makes a good laugh at a gathering but loses the friendship of the butt of his joke. If we ever have to make fun at somebody's expense, see to it that we make fun at our own expense rather than on others. People love to laugh at jokes cracked on others rather than on themselves. That's why a good stand up comedian always cracks joke at himself rather than on his audience.

But if we are not a professional comedian, how can we evoke laughter in ourselves? Laughter comes from a healthy spirit. We laugh because we feel good inside. We laugh because we are at peace with ourselves, with our neighbors and with the world. But most of all, we laugh because we are at peace with God and we are so in love with our present life.

To evoke laughter, one must be very observant. Look at babies and small kids. They are so laughable in their own ways because they are so satisfied with themselves. Look at a cute pup or kitten or any baby animal and you can feel the joy and laughter bursting inside them. Hear the singing of the birds, the swaying of the leaves as the wind passes by. They bring the melody of joy and laughter to the world.

If our inner being is joyful, then we can laugh to our heart's content and the whole world will laugh with us. Ha, ha, ha, ha, *lol*

Hi Mel,
I can tell that this post is absolutely scrumptious. We really need this information. We need to lauhgt as a kid, as a bird, and it is the best medicine.
What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul, as Yiddish Proveb said.

What a coincidence - I posted today a post "Share a SMILE" with three stand up comedians...

I actually cannot stop laughing and that is a problem :)

Have a great weekend

Hi Mel, that's the way to go. Laugh is important to knock down the pains of our soul.

Well, in these topics, I thank God for putting Gusthav on my life (and I think also in the blog world).

Big greetings, big hugs

Hi Mel, I agree, laughter is the best medicine in the whole world.

And reading this post, I thought you were thinking about me, 'cause I mostly post funny situations (even funny misfortunes about myself) in my corner.

Thanks for this tribute to me.

Greetings and hugs

Nice Day, with my whole soul:
Gusthav

Hi Hrystyna,
How right you are. Sometimes we overlook this basic health toner of our body. We laugh not only to relieve our body of built up stresses, we laugh to express the very joy of living. Let's laugh our way to a better health my friend. Ha, ha, ha *lol* God bless you and your loved ones always.

Hi Ceedy,
Yes, it is better to laugh than to cry. We gain nothing by feeling so sorry for ourselves. But we attract a lot of friends by having a healthy sense of humor. Thanks for your visit and God bless.

Hi Arthur,
Sometimes, we become so engrossed with the problems of life that we become so serious and sourly. Nothing beats a healthy dose of humor to lighten up our day. Thanks for your visit my young friend. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Gusthav,
Oh yes, every time I look at the caricature you attached to your name, I can't help but smile. You look so funny even in that caricature. Probably you are even more funny in person. Thanks my friend for making this world a better place to live in by your funny jokes and antics. God bless you and your family always.

Hi Bro. Mel,

Hope you're doing just fine. I miss you in my blogs. Congrats to your princess Heidi =)

Kaya ako I try to laugh as often as I can but sometimes it's hard lalo na if you're burden with a lot of things.

Basta always be happy and laugh na lang tayo lagi.

Hi Tey,
Yes, even if we are experiencing bodily pain, the more we should laugh because laughter secretes a certain hormone that deadens bodily pains. Laughter also relieves physical and emotional stresses in our body. I recommend the blog of Marie who has Fresh Free Humorous Jokes everyday. Her jokes are replete with so much humor that will surely give you a good laugh always. Thanks and God bless my friend.

Ya, I can agree with you. I saw or read where you can actually reduce high blood preassure from laughing. They did a study on it some where. Postive thoughts Postive thoughts

Hi Chronic Chick,
I cannot recall the exact name of the gland but I'm sure that laughter secretes a certain gland that actually deadens pain. If I'm not mistaken it's called serotonin but I'm not sure, correct me if I'm wrong. I'm still praying for you, for Bluebirdy and sis Emmyrose. Please continue blogging. It is therapeutic and is a prefect venue to vent your emotions. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you and your family always.
