Every morning we wake to a new reality and we simply don't know what will unfold. In a typical day we might have 50,000 thoughts move through our mind according to the Huffington Post, though sources at UCLA have found we might have up to 70,000 thoughts traveling the conscious and unconsious manner in which we form thought. That is certainly a lot to consider in the idea of daily brain activity.
In those thoughts there are a myriad of scenarios that play out and depending upon the messages we are receiving, we might be swayed to have positive emotions or believe in negative emotions that articulate for our body how we respond to the thought through attitude. If what we perceive and believe shapes our thought, then attitude is the level at which we respond emotionally to a situation and what guides us to action. From our results that come from the action, we can see a direct correlation of what we believe.
If we like what we are producing, produce more of it and share it round liberally. If we don't like our results then we can do something about it. Whether we look at this analytically or just simply dive in and do something, laughter helps us cut to the chase and get a different result. Some prefer to sort it all out and laugh knowing what a difference they are making, while others just start laughing and the change gets made without really having to fuss much about the how and why. Either way, when you are laughing, it just all gets better.
The great thing about daily laughter is that it can raise your set point for living well in life. Having hosted a daily laughter call for 20 minutes each and every day, I knew commitment and purpose for well over six years. When we want to make a change, it does happen overnight. Keeping it changed however, requires practice. This was my practice and what I do know is that it elevated my understanding and comprehension of the value for laughter ten fold. I didn't know what it was like not to laugh after awhile.
In the past few years many life transitions occured all at once and timing became a problem for me interrupting my commitment to laughter. I decided to surrender the struggle and let it go and when I did, I found that I was still quite resillient living on what I had built. Though almost two years later I chose to get back on board with daily laughter to see what difference it made and could make. I found it was like climbing back into a familiar saddle and that it just evened things out, wasn't necessary but was a whole lot of fun.
Make it a practice to learn to laugh alone, you will thank yourself for the way you feel and how you grow. I no longer have asthma, my immune system is marvelous as I find health rather than illness and I enjoy everything better.
