The healing energy from laughter is ten fold. One’s attitude, positive or negative can affect their overall healing process of an ill person. Having a positive outlook in approaching many situations can be integral for surviving tough incidences.

 Laughter is known to relax the body, relax the mind, and temporarily allow us to forget our problems. When we approach a negative situation again, we are able to figure it out a lot easier once we are given a break.

“Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.” ~~ Bob Newhart

So many people believe in the healing method of laughter that “laughing” groups have developed all over the world to get together and just laugh. Many people believe it works and the classes are definitely worth trying out.

When we are in a tough situation, it is important to take a break, even for a short period of time, sit back and enjoy the smaller things in life.  By laughing , we are taken back to a simpler time of a carefree attitude. Even if it is for just a few minutes, your body and mind will appreciate it.

  1. You know that that person is still that way.they called me yesterday and the same thing happen.And they feel like they always have to be right.It don’t matter what we talk about i’m always wrong Y what’s the problem.The called me and asked me can i help them get a new bed i said yes and then after about 10mints later the convo went sour why do it have to be like that.We have been friends sence high school and i use to watch her son while she work and went to school and i never asked for anything because if anybody needs me and i can help i just do.I never know when i’m gonna need someone to be there for me one day.My friends get mad at me because i give and don’t ask or exsept anything back.If anybody knows about virgo’s thats how we are and thats how my mom taught me to be.If god wanted me to be another way he would have made me different {aim I right can you help me with this?}
    Tell time sisters much love to you all.And pray for our childeren future.

  2. I notice that a certen person that i be around always try to make anything i say that may be good try to turn it around and make bad.
    Do they want to take my laugther into sadness? and why would they want todo that?

    I stop talking to them that much because it makes me have a bad day.I will text them and say hello and then leve ti at that so we don’t get into anything.Do you think that was a good move because i can’t take that seems when i’m laughting at some thing she always seem to make me feel like it’s not funny to her but when we around her friends she laughts at everything they say.

    Sense i have been keeping my distance i have been feeling a lot better and i feel good at knight when i go to bed at knight and i dont feel stressed by this person anymore.I text them about 3xs aweek to just see how they are but thats it i know that i can’t talk to them because they want to see me upset all the time like them and i just can’t do that anymore i’m learning a little more each day about different people that i use to be around it’s not to many because i’m really a loner and i have been like that sense i was about 12 years old and i like that way.

    Once i notice that i stop laughting i have a problem and i have to wounder if it’s me or the people that i’m around so i have to take a look at that the next time i’m qaround them.I don’t have any friends i have people that i work with and people that i grew up with and we have fun around each othe but i don’t know it any of these people would have my back if i need them.(and thats real).I love to laugh and love to have a little fun but if your not about positive things in life then i try to stay away from them.
