Brian Tracy in his book Maximum Achievement says he knows a happy family when he sees one by the amount of laughter he sees in the family. Interesting. I want that! I created a goal to create more laughter in our home, but how?
Laughter is Healthy
I googled the benefits of laughter and found one website that provided the following 7 benefits;
- Lowers blood sugar
- Reduces stress hormone levels
- Works your abs
- Improves cardiac health
- Boosts T-Cells
- Triggers the release of endorphins
- Produces a general sense of well-being
I always love a good laugh but never really thought about how do I bring more laughter into our family. I brought it up to my men’s bible study group and one of the guys offered the following advice. He said he heard Shay Carl, a vlogger on YouTube, with several million followers, created a daily habit. He goes into his bathroom and laughs for 30-60 seconds at the start of each day. That’s right he actually forces himself to laugh. Smiling and laughing can actually trick your brain into happiness.
Ok I tried it. It feels a little goofy. I then would start to laugh in front of my wife or daughter and get their reaction. They both thought I was weird but I did see a little smirk of a smile peep through.
Why do I share this story with you?
Financial freedom is important but family life and the health of your life and your family life is so much more important. If you have a ton of laughter in your family, I applaud you, you are doing something right. If not, stop and think about how you might bring more laughter to your family. Nobody has arrived. We are all on a journey to keep finding new ways to live life to the fullest. Most of us would agree, that a good laugh is one of the joys of life. I wish all of you much laughter!
