Laughing

11 posts in this topic

Laughing feels good.

I read this today on the internet (so it must be true):

In the 1950’s, people laughed an average of 18 minutes a day - Currently, we laugh an average of 4-6 minutes a day.

That's kind of sad.

For the folks here who were around back then, was it a nervous, Cold War laughter. Or was is the really good, genuine kind?

My son moved in with his fiance in Nov. Since then I have not literally laughed out loud nearly as much. He was my daily comic relief and I miss his wonderful sense humor so much!

They were here for dinner last night, and it felt so good to just LOL! 

The 1950s were a special time...the war was over, families were growing, there was prosperity and tv was full of innocent humor. Pleasantville. 

Now, we know too much about the rest of the world...it’s depressing.

It’s not just the act of laughing! It’s the physical and emotional release of laughing at something that strikes you as truly funny.  

Those people are nuts.

My friend isn't nuts. He enjoyed it.  And now his staff has been introduced to it.  I don't reject it. We shall see. lol

The more I think about it, the sillier it sounds...a Certification in Laughter Yoga.
