April 14th International Moment of Laughter Day

Here’s a fun day, International Moment of Laughter Day! The day was created by humorist Izzy Gesell. The general idea is to get everyone around you laughing while you laugh with them. Laughter is the best medicine and it is something life requires, or at least should. It is also infectious as when someone around you laughs you will find yourself laughing, or at least smiling, when you may not even know what it is you are laughing about. Being international it could, at least for a short while, bring peace to the earth. It might even be fun to try and get everyone all around the world to laugh at the exact same time.

How to celebrate – Find something to laugh about. Create something to laugh at. Make sure you are laughing with people, not at them.

April 14th International Moment of Laughter Day

We all know laughing is good for you. It lightens the mood and sends hormones through your body that actually make you feel better. That leads to the old adage that “Laughter is the best medicine”. Well, it’s not really it’s what laughter does for us mentally that makes us better, not actually a cure. Today was created by humorist Izzy Gesell, with all the best intentions. If you are laughing, it’s pretty hard to get mad at someone… even yourself. Most of us look for the humor in the every day routine. The more we are able to find the better the day goes for us, and everyone around us. And so many things are really very funny. It might be easier to find all the things that are wrong but finding them really doesn’t change anything. Laughing at something is almost like finding a cure, it lets us view things differently and project them differently to others.

How to celebrate – Find something to laugh about today. Get your friends and family all together and have a laughing moment. (If you can’t find anything funny) If you find someone laughing at you, try and join in.
