That’s a good question. With people losing their jobs, trying to figure out how to home-school their kids and dealing with uncertainty every single day, is it really OK to laugh?
My answer couldn’t come fast enough – YES. Yes, we all need to laugh and as often as we possibly can. You’ve heard the old saying: “Laughter is the best medicine.” Well, with no vaccine in sight, laughter may be our ONLY medicine.
This pandemic has hit everyone. It doesn’t matter where you live or what language you speak, this virus is global and it does not discriminate. It has taken a lot from us. In my friend’s case, it has taken away her sense of smell. Please don’t let it take away your sense of humor. Find some way to laugh every single day. If that’s not possible, settle for a chuckle – or even a smile.
Here’s some ideas to bring laughter to your day:
- Watch a humorous movie
- Google funny stories
- Or if none of that works, watch this video of laughing babies: Guaranteed to Make You Laugh.
I promise it will relieve your stress, even if just for a little while. So no matter what challenges you are facing, it is OK to laugh.
