Day 2 on what astonishes:
I am with Audrey Hepburn, who famously said: “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it is the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills.”
Everything from gentle chuckling to infectious giggling to uncontrollable belly laughs. Laughing is a miraculous experience that transforms us inside and out; revivifies our perspective; deflates negativity; connects us to others, and empowers us.
If we want to take some of the potency out of a bad situation, there’s nothing like laughing about it to sap the situation of some of its power. Humor wields a one-of-a-kind magic.
And it’s great for our health! Remember the old adage? Laughter is the best medicine.
Among other benefits, it lowers blood pressure, boosts the immune system, gives our hearts a workout, and heightens our sense of well-being. And it’s fun :). That’s some pretty wondrous juju right there.
So, here’s to the astounding experience of laughing. May it shower abundantly on your path….
