Have you ever stopped to think about the benefits of laughing? Weird question I know. I know we all have our moments that make you scratch your head and wonder if we just have a tumblweed floating around up there.
Have you ever stopped to consider laughing as a method of selfcare?
Some of the benefits of laughing
- It relaxes the whole body
- Boosts your immune system
- Triggers the release of endorphins (the body’s happy drug)
- Laughing helps burn calories
- Relieves stress
- Promotes group bonding
Laughing as a form of Selfcare: let’s get laughing
So the first occurrence happened when I was still using my crutches and had a plaster cast on my leg because of my broken ankle.
I’m laughing as I’m writing this because it really is that dumb. Anyways, I was heading into the washroom and the bathroom door was partially closed.
My husband was behind me because I’m crap with two feet, let alone one foot and two sticks. I BLEW on the washroom door and became extremely proud of myself when it opened.
I was thinking I was pretty awesome at that moment. As you can probably guess it was my husband who opened the door, I just didn’t see him do it because I was looking at the floor….. *facepalm*

The second one is better
Again I was in the washroom (this was a couple of hours ago, March 5, 2020). I was washing my hair in the shower when the lights went out….. omg…… this is SO embarrassing.
My first thought was “oh! The powers out”…….. no, no it wasn’t. My eyes were just closed……..
So as you can tell, not working causes my brain goes south on vacation. Lol
If you are looking for a couple more things to laugh at check out these videos. Adorable goat spits on human, Tucker eats tree of doom. (If you haven’t seen them before all of Tucker’s videos are adorable. Tucker is a golden retriever).
So there you have it. Two incredibly ridiculous and funny (seriously, I laughed a lot) things that I’ve done.
Please tell me you’ve had something similar happen to you….. it can’t just be me…. lol… Tell me a funny story about you down in the comments.
Till next time,
