Finding time to laugh

I've always been the type of person that enjoys to laugh and to make people. Growing up I remember regularly laughing myself to tears and severe belly pains. I had a rude realization a few years back and that was that I couldn't remember the last time I had laughed to the point of tears. I also realized around that same time that hadn't been feeling my full self which caused me a level of anxiety that I had never felt before.

In my mind, my lack of laughter in my life triggered my anxiety and I knew that I wouldn't last long without fixing this in some way.

So I did a little research and found a improv school and took a class and that was just what the doctor ordered. One day a week for 7 weeks I gathered with a small group with intention to be silly and to laugh. I reconnected with my tearful laughter. What I didn't realize was I was learning skills to be a better communicator, listener, collaborator and how to deal with the unexpected in the process. I realized after the first class how important laughing is to my general happiness and well being so I make it my business to have a good laugh daily. Below are a few things I do to infuse laughter into my life.

Things I do to create space for laughter:

Play fun games

Watch funny shows/movies

Write a fun version of a real story

Watch something old with my children

Make memes

Make videos

Prank my family

What do you do for some fun and laughter?
