We all have those moments (you know what I’m talking about!) when the bin bag splits or the dog shakes too soon and coats the hall in bath water – it’s so easy to feel like the whole world is against you, but next time try to see the funny side: Our Frank-Monster looks like such a doofus when he shakes!
One thing we could all do with a whole heap more of is laughter – seriously, it’s scientifically proven to improve your health.
For as long as I can remember, the TV show Friends has been my comfort blanket. I have watched that show so much I now laugh before the jokes. I always watch it when I’m home alone for the night – it covers up those creaky noises every empty house has and convinces me I’m not about to be attacked by a rogue axe-murderer. HAH.
Amongst our friendship group Friends has been a source for a lot of laughter – we have ‘Friends Scene It’ tournaments, ‘guess the line: Simpsons or Friends’ games and Boyfriend and I always say it has a quote for every occasion. We quote it a gazillion times a day!
Simplyhealth, who provided the above article on the health benefits of laughter, invited Boyfriend and I to watch Friends at the Everyman Cinema in Leeds. It was the perfect opportunity to spend what would have been a dull weekday evening, laughing at the early haircuts of the cast together. It was also lovely to finally meet Dannielle from Chicadeedee too, so thank you for that Simplyhealth! We were grinning from ear-to-ear all night!
It’s easier than you think to adopt laughter into your daily life:
1 // Laugh more – even at those niggling, annoying moments!
2 // Find a ‘go-to’ comfort blanket, like Friends DVDs, for when you’re sad or scared.
3 // Play games, even if they seem geeky to outsiders. You’re never too old!
4 // Accept invitations – a little change of scenery is perfect to inspire laughter.
5 // Have in-jokes and quote your favourite TV shows over text or social media.
Without laughter, life is all a “moo point”. Am I right?
“Like a cow’s opinion. It just doesn’t matter. It’s moo.” – Joey Tribbiani
What makes you laugh? Loves x xx
