So this morning, I was feeling a bit sad. Not so much about anything specific, just a little down and out. Not my usual bouncy self, is all. The weather could quite possibly have something to do with it, but that’s a whole different blog post for a different day!
So I’m sitting at work all blah-zay. Someone said something which made me laugh and I instantly felt better. Maybe it didn’t take away my gloominess for good, but for that time being, I truly did feel better. It got me to thinking. How amazing is it that laughing can do that!?!? I read somewhere that laughing helps in releasing endorphins which can bring positive changes to the mindset of a person. I also read that heavy laughter brings in much more oxygen to the lungs then normal breathing would do. Did you guys know this? It makes sense right?
Laughter is so powerful. And I never really stopped to really think about that until today. I mean… I know laughter is good for you, there’s that wise old saying about “laughter is the best medicine. But there is so much truth to it. For me there is, anyway. It always brightens my mood. No matter what. I could be in the worst mood ever and if I laugh, I feel better. The more I laugh, the bigger the chunk of sadness gets hauled away. And you know what this means?
It means my friends and family help contribute to my daily health and they don’t even know it! LOL
