- Enhances blood flow to the body’s extremities and improves cardiovascular function.

Here are seven tips to help you get more laughter in your life.
Tip 1: Learn to laugh at yourself. Recognize how funny some of your behavior really is—especially your shortcomings or mistakes. We all have little idiosyncrasies or behaviors that are unique to us that we can recognize and enjoy. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Tip 2: Inject humor any time it’s appropriate. People love to laugh. Get a joke book and learn how to tell a good joke. Humor and laughter really make life enjoyable.
Tip 3: Find a cartoonist whom you find funny, and follow him or her. Humor is very individual. What I may find funny, you may not, but cartoonists, such as those in The New Yorker or on the “comics page” of newspapers, have something for everybody. Find a cartoonist who makes you laugh and bookmark their website or friend them on Facebook.
Tip 4: Watch comedy shows or videos. It’s amazingly easy to find something funny on television, such as a sitcom or comedy special, on YouTube, or through a site like Netflix, Vudu, or Amazon. Put “funniest movie” or “funniest video” or “funniest TV” or “funniest comedian” into your browser to start collecting sites and ideas.
Tip 5: Take a friend to a funny movie. Most people love to go to the movies and especially enjoy a good comedy. When people see a funny movie together, they find themselves laughing harder and longer than if they had seen the same scene by themselves. We all feed off each other’s laughter during and after the movie. Also, laughing together helps build good relationships.
Tip 6: Play with kids. Kids really know how to laugh and play. If you don’t have kids of your own, spend time with your nieces, nephews, or neighborhood children of families you know well. Become a Big Brother or Big Sister. Investigate local Little Leagues. Help out at your church’s Sunday School and at children’s events. Kids make grownups laugh and smile.
Tip 7: Ask “What’s funny about this situation?“ Many times we find ourselves in seemingly impossible situations, but if we can laugh about it, somehow they become enjoyable or at least tolerable experiences. Often we hear people say, “This is something you’ll look back on and laugh about.” Well, why wait? Find the humor in the situation and enjoy a good laugh immediately.
