Humor- The best way to live lifeBy Guest Blogger • May 23rd, 2012 • Category: Entertainment • One Response
Paul E. McGhee once described humor as:
‘’Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state supports good health.”
I often ask people, what is according to them the greatest reward of being alive? Is it chocolate which is given to you, an ice cream, tropical vacations, hugs from children, or the satisfaction of a job well done? Thousands of people lead to thousands of different answers. But the real answer lies in one supreme pleasure that spells out all, the pure joy of laughter. It is independent of your age, wealth, race, or living situation. Infact, when laughter is frequent life is good.
Sometimes we go through very tough situations in life but later on when we muse over these occurrences happily. This usually happens as our perspective of seeing things changes with time.
Our sense of humor is a very precious thing in life and one can make life more enjoyable and stress- free by seeing the light side of each situation, even cracking jokes once in a while.
Laughter is an immediate remedy to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster than a good laugh to refresh your mind and make your body. It readily lightens your burdens, inspires you, connects you to others, and keeps you focused and alert.
With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems. To support both physical and emotional health, laughter is necessary to relieve one by reducing tensions. When there is shared laughter it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy and reduces differences among people. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost up your energy, reduce pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress and tension.
So, remember what Bill Cosby said, “Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.”
Enjoy your life as it is the precious gift which Allah has given to you people as it is given for one time only. J
