If humans ever needed a reminder of their power to transform their lives in an instant, we should remember to laugh and to laugh heartily and often. Even when the laughter is forced, our bodies react instantly and release tension. Laughter changes our outlook, encourages us to breathe more deeply, banishes fear, diminishes our attachment to our problems and helps us to feel more confident, more centred, more capable. Perhaps we take ourselves a little too seriously. Perhaps we imagine that we are the only ones with problems. Perhaps we feel that we really are important and should conduct our lives with gravitas and seriousness. Well these attitudes just get in the way of your deeper power, your well-being, creativity and capacity to enjoy life. So let’s use the body’s natural ability to release stress, anxiety and tension by laughing out loud. Make it a habit. You’ll feel so much better!
