Laughter: works 60% of the time, all the time

funnyfaces

We laugh a lot in our house. If you told me there was a study that proved that laughing makes people 100% happier I would believe you. It is hard to be sad or upset when you are laughing. Anthony Robbins talks about how psychology follows physiology. If you act happy your mind has no choice but to assume you are happy. I live by this rule because it works, even in the worst times.

PS- the title references a classic nonsensical line in the movie Anchorman.

    Here's a quote, similar to one of Meister Eckhart, from Marsilio Ficino (1433 – 1499)

    “O my friends, live your lives happily, far from narrowness. Live happy. It was the happiness of heaven that created you; and with a kind of laughter, that is , with a dilating, a movement, a splendor, it declared you , as if rollicking. The happiness of heaven will protect you. So live every day happy in the present. For worry in the present steals the present away from you and steals the future, too. Curiosity about the future quickly turns it into the past. Therefore, I implore you, again and again, live happy!”
