Ah… the L day. This is one of my favorite things and I find, truly mind-changing. Sorry for missing my cue yesterday. But while I should have been blogging I was watching this cool video, which I am now sharing with you!

Laughter
noun
1. do you really need me to give you the definition? ;)

We’ve already established that writing is hard, and writing is slow, and writing can get you bogged down. It’s a tough gig, yo!

I saw this Ted talk yesterday that talked about Happiness and how we’ve all got it backward. It is truly exceptional and worth your minutes… check it out. In it, the gent talks about how setting goals and setting the happiness to be available only after that goal tricks the brain because the next goal is set and we never get there to that elusive place called Happiness. He also talks about a Baby Unicorn. So, there’s that.

I think being happy is absolutely a choice. We’re all dragged through the mud and we all need to take some time to live in the doldrums and experience the supreme pity party.  But then the time comes for happy again, and there’s no better path to getting in that proper frame of mind than laughter.

Laughter relaxes the body. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter releases endorphins. Laughter supports the heart. And those are just some of the physical benefits. It also eases anxiety, relieves stress, promotes teamwork, makes us more attractive to others. So… laugh it up, people. You’ll be better off for it.

  1. Laughter is a gift. I have two clients who actually have me writing pieces for them that are informational yet humorous. It’s done wonders for my writing and overall satisfaction!

  2. Hi,
    So true. I believe every good writer needs to be able to laugh. Thank you for this confirmation. It is sometime the laughter that picks me up out of a downward spiral.
