How many times do you smile or laugh each day? Recently I read this interesting article that made me realise that we don’t chuckle enough which is strange since laughter is one of the most joyful and spontaneous bodily responses that releases a flow of endorphins that makes us instantly feel better. Yet, on average most adults only manage 20 bursts of laughter a day (if they are lucky) while kids by the age of four laugh about 300 times per day. Incredible, isn't it?
It seems the older we get the more serious we are. So here is a little challenge: starting from today till the end of the week, let’s try to make at least 3 people chuckle each day at something we say to get their daily laughter dosage up a bit. It can be a lame little joke or a funny video from youtube, anything that will get them laughing. What do you say? Are you game? xo
P.S: Smile :)
P.P.S: Plus, on being fully present in the moment.
