Getting Serious About Laughing

I think most of us know that laughter is good for our health and sense of well-being. And while we all know people who seem to be able to get themselves and other people laughing very easily, sometimes we let ourselves get weighed down and unable to see the funny side of life (or business).

Evidently it’s easier for children to laugh than it is for adults. I discovered today that a study has shown that ‘…when a child gets to nursery school, he or she laughs about 300 times a day. In contrast, adults laugh an average of 17 times a day…’ Big difference!

My source for this information and some very interesting observations about laughter is Ron Ball’s article Laughter is the Best Elixir on his EFTzone blog.

As well as information and observations, there’s a fun gift embedded in the text of the post.

If you’ve ever had someone say ‘Lighten up’ or ‘It’s not that bad, there is a funny side’ and you haven’t been able to see it, you owe it to yourself to read Ron’s article (and check out the gift).
