Feeling Down? A Dose of Humor May Be Just What You Need
Why laughing is good for you
“Humor is the great thing, the saving thing after all. The minute it crops up, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments flit away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.” — Mark Twain
I’m done holding my breath, worried I might say or do something I consider humorous in front of other people.
What if no one else gets the joke? Am I the only person who thinks a cat with an ingenious way to blow out a birthday candle is funny? I don’t think so. Seriously, how could anyone not laugh out loud at that video?
But back to the source of my discontent.
I’m tired of seeing so many people with sullen, emotionless faces roaming the planet. Merely existing in physical form, they wander around with droopy eyes, straight-laced lips, and a complete and total disinterest in what’s going on around them.
