They told me that laughter was good for the soul. Well, that’s awesome because I LOVE to laugh. However, does anyone else find that you don’t laugh OUT loud or AS loud when you are alone at home?
Lately, however, I’ve found myself literally laughing so hard ALONE in my apartment at various television shows, movies, YouTube videos, commercials, or things on the internet/social media that my neighbors probably think I’m crazy. An unknown author said that “if you smile [or LAUGH] while no one is around, you really mean it.” I am now starting to really believe that to be true.
So, here are a few light-hearted steps to help you release your inner laugh when you are alone:
STEP 1: Find the comedy in the situation or just find something funny to watch.
STEP 2: Don’t take yourself too seriously.
STEP 3: Don’t be overly concerned about who hears you and in turn wonders what you’re doing.
STEP 4: Yes, they might think you are crazy, but it’s only because they wish they were laughing too.
STEP 5: Finally, let yourself be FREE and just LET IT OUT.
There, you have it!
Better laugh than cry, right?
