Thatâ€™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 couldnâ€™t come fast enough â€“ YES. Yes, we all need to laugh and as often as we possibly can. Youâ€™ve heard the old saying: â€œLaughter is the best medicine.â€ Well, with no vaccine in sight, laughter may be our ONLY medicine.
This pandemic has hit everyone. It doesnâ€™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 friendâ€™s case, it has taken away her sense of smell. Please donâ€™t let it take away your sense of humor. Find some way to laugh every single day. If thatâ€™s not possible, settle for a chuckle â€“ 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:Â 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.
