There is no better cure for a bad mood than laughter. Not just a little giggle, but side-splitting, drink-coming-out-of-your nose, hard-to-breath, tear falling laughter. It’s like having an emotional colonic. Cleans out all of the stuff and purifies the soul.
It’s hard not to feel better after a convulsion of hysterical laughter. I don’t know about you but it makes my mind and body feel re-freshed. Like I am invicible and can take on anything that comes my way, any problem and however serious is long forgotten and all I feel is happy.
When I want to laugh like that, there are a couple of friends I always call. Within minutes, we can hardly speak because the tears are rolling, noses are running, and our breath is coming in short pants!
This week has been one of those weeks where a much needed ‘gin dinner’ as we girls call it has been required. So on the spur of the moment of we set off to our favourite restaurant to have a few well deserved gin and tonics and a bite to eat.
After talking random rubbish (but important rubbish all the same), ample amounts of alcohol, not-very-clean-and-will-not-do-our-healthy-eating-any-good food and a boat load of laughter later we all departed, returning home feeling totally refreshed and restored.
Don’t get me wrong sometimes running and exercise work perfectly well, but sometimes a good side splitting laughter session with your closest friends is just what the doctor ordered.
Now although this isn’t a funny blog I hope it has you thinking…………….what is it that makes you feel refreshed and restored after a hard week or troublesome problem? Laughter or exercise?
And don’t you deserve what works for you more often so you feel more happy?
We would love to hear your views.
As ever thanks for reading, B x
