Nobody makes it out alive, so don’t take life too seriously. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Individuals who see humor in things and laugh regularly have healthier hearts and live longer. Laughter does not require large amounts of time or money to be applied. Read the comic strips. Go see a comedy film. Laughter has physiological, psychological, social, spiritual, and quality-of-life benefits. Laughter bolsters the immune system, reduces stress hormones, and increases our tolerance to pain. Poke a little fun at yourself. After all, if you fail miserably at something with an epic flair, you’ll have humiliating humorous stories to tell about yourself for posterity.
Singing is another activity that makes us happy. It is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting. Singing delivers a host of positive physical and emotional benefits, including increased heart rate and improved breathing, lung capacity, posture and mood. Singing promotes self-confidence, empowerment and well-being and reduces feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety.
Being physically active helps you feel better mentally and emotionally, so you have increased quality of life. The changes in our body when we are truly enjoying ourselves, whether we express it with refined chuckling, deep belly laughs or singing enhance our lives and improve our personalities.
There are many circumstances in life that are stressful and depressing that give us headaches. Adoption is a situation that often affects individuals in egregiously bad ways but when things out of our control go wrong we need to relax and not always go into crisis mode. Humor is one of the best ways to relieve stress and anxiety. We need to assertively strive for a balance in our lives to feel good about ourselves and remain emotionally stable. When we see the humorous side of things we tend to stay in a positive mood, our self-esteem increases, and we feel healthier.
