I love to laugh and I find a lot of things funny. I notice when I’m out and I think of funny stuff I smile. It affects people in different ways when they see it. It either makes them smile also or it makes them look at me strangely, which makes me laugh almost as much. Frankly, I figure I’m in my own little world and I’m good with it as long as I’m happy. 🙂

What an inspiring post. I knew when reading this that you had a medical background. Laughter is essential to life, health and of course happiness. The fact that you did not glibly say “everyone” when referring to laughter, show me that you are a very caring person. This post is in the “top 5” that I have read.
Patrice, what a wonderful piece on the importance of laughter and humor. I think too often both are under-valued in relation to health benefits.

I have to agree with this sentiment. When I was in the behavioral center, I found out exactly how this is true. We had a night that we all got together and played games and listened to music. I laughed that night like I had not in a long time. I woke up the next day feeling so much better. I even believe that this is one reason I was able to come home so quickly.
Qu, Good for you…A dose of your own medicine Laughter made you feel better. Thanks for continue support.

Laughter is so important! Life is not meant to be so serious! My best way of dealing with things is to laugh about it and find a funny positive out of the situation. There are times to be serious. BUT! Laughter makes life so much more enjoyable.
I get to hear my 3 month old laugh every morning. Throughout the day, my toddler runs through the house with bursts of laughter… It reminds me not to be so uptight. Let loose, have fun!
