Fountain of Youth….

What if I told you I discovered the Fountain of Youth?

By using this “product” everyday all day you could potentially add up to 8 years on to your life. 8 YEARS! Plus this youthful medicine has been scientifically proven to strengthen your immune system, lower blood pressure, diminish pain, and even protect you from the effects that stress has on our lives.

So I ask you….How much would you pay for this product? $1,000 maybe even $10,000…..

What if I told you it was FREE! Yes FREE! The medicine that I’m talking about is LAUGHTER! Good ol’ side splittin’, almost peeing your pants laughter.

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

Laughter is probably the least taken advantage of emotion if you ask me. It’s so easy to do it; turn on the TV, check out a funny movie, eavesdrop in the bathroom, try actually listening to what your spouse or significant other is saying….that alone should add at least 30 years. I find that if I’m getting so caught up with life and stress if I take a minute to watch my 20 month old son run laps around the living room while laughing hysterically at Elmo it makes MY day better.

But I don’t just laugh at home, I go out and laugh. Being a stay at home mom is the best job I have ever had, but sometimes I just need to get away. I look forward to weekly date nights with my husband, and yes I am the girl in the corner booth laughing ridiculously loud off one martini. I tend to have the servers laughing, my husband eventually gets in on the fun, and the people around us begin laughing creating a domino effect of euphoric goodness. Surround yourself with people who can do that for you, it makes the night more fun and laughter is a cheap appetizer before dinner ;). Shared laughter is one of the most effective tools for keeping relationships fresh and exciting. All emotional sharing builds strong and lasting relationship bonds, but sharing laughter and play adds joy, vitality, and resilience. Shared laughter is an essential component of a strong and healthy relationship. By making a conscious effort to incorporate more humor and play into your daily interactions, you can improve the quality of your love relationships— as well as your connections with co-workers, family members, and friends.

So the next time you find yourself in a quiet place like a meeting, the library, the ladies room even, and you find yourself thinking of something or someone that was absolutely hysterical……don’t stifle that laugh, LET IT GO. Besides when everyone turns to look at you, that will make you laugh harder and you’ve now added even more years to your laugh!
