Life is a little more complicated than we would like to think, so, we should try our level best to stick to a laughter routine to add more mirth to it. We get so caught up with everything that is happening in our lives that we forget to grin, smile or laugh. We’ll share some hacks that are easy to follow and add some sunshine into your daily lives.
Set Yourself Laughter Goals
While most of us may think how can we laugh more without trying too hard? Setting a clear intent can work in your favor. It’s like setting yourself a resolution, like any other goals, such as eating healthier, exercising more, or drinking more water. Make it such an integral part of your lives that you do not forget to laugh can help in the process.
Make Mornings More Fun
As soon as we get up we wish that our mornings turn out to be just perfect. So, how about adding more laughter to your morning routine? You can beget a year-in-a-box calendar that will make you laugh more. Just glancing at it will make you think about the joke of the day. Just choose a year-in-a-box that can tickle your funny bone and keep it right next to your alarm clock. Choose Garfield or Dilbert, or whatever catches your fancy.
Smile May Give Way to More Laughter
Smiling may not be laughing, however, it may finally give way to laughter if you give it a try. When you smile, you may feel the chemical changes going on in your bodies and make a difference, both internally and externally.
Smiling can work as a warm-up exercise that may ultimately make you break into laughter. Give yourself more smiling cues to and do something that will make you smile, such as drinking from your favorite coffee cup. This way you will laugh whenever you drink from that cup. There are other ways of course – as you can sing loudly in the shower and grin in the process, or smile when you steal a jar of peanut butter from the fridge at night!
