We are living in a world that is filled with negativity and stress from every corner. The media has been making tons of money because negative news sales. Negativity leads to stress. Many people that I know take pride in declaring they are stressful. Ask someone how are you and the common response is "I am very buzy and under stress." Looks like the corporate world has to be stressful or something is not right.
Next point that I want to make is that stress leads to health problems. Many diseases are cased by stress. Many years ago I was involved in the wellness industry and at some point I was consulting individuals on certain immune condition. These individuals used to come and meet me almost weekly to monitor their progress. There were weeks when their condition was really bad and we checked the lifestyle and there was no major changes to cause their condition to become worse except the stress level.
The book of Proverbs states something very powerful that most of us ignore. It says, laughter does good like a medicine. This was written thousands of years ago and science has proven the health benefits of laughter. Find something to laugh about daily. Many people take themselves too seriously. Take some funny selfies with your phone...just do it. The reason I wrote today about laughter is because of Facebook. Facebook reminded me today of a video we took with my kids and their cousin two years ago. It is a funny video of us dancing. I looked at it and I started laughing.
The moment you finish reading this article, please find something to laugh. Maybe you need to call a friend who is funny. Some people go to stand up comedy shows. Some people like to watch Mr Bean series. One of the reason I like doing Mr Bean impersonation shows is that I like to see people laugh. Bringing surprise joy to people is really fun.
Laughter does good like a medicine. Laugh and be healthy.
