Laughter… A Mini-Vacation

LAUGHTER is spontaneous fun and a mini-vacation. It can be anything that tickles your heart, as it magically alleviates any stress of the moment! Although laughter cannot be forced upon someone, laughter is contagious.

Have you ever played the laughing game? It is a game best played when you have at least 3 or more people in a group. One person just starts with a single, “ha!” The next person adds another and you get, “ha-ha”. You keep going around each group member adding another “ha!” and you keep repeating around the group of people over and over again until there is a roar of laughter, “ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.” At that point hardly anyone can contain themselves. 

Spontaneous, funny moments usually cause laughter. Jokes, puns, riddles and stories with unexpected endings are great ways to encourage laughter. Children and animals are great source of humor. Can you think of any laughable moments or favorite jokes? Are there any specific times in your life that you can now laugh about? Laughter is good for the soul.
