I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. – Audrey Hepburn
Funny people are always my favorite people. I love comedies, and I love laughing. Growing up I laughed easily at everything. Even things that weren’t really that funny, I’d burst into a fit of giggles and not be able to stop. I was a great ego boost for my comedian friends, I’m sure.
We all get more serious as we grow up, and we laugh less, I think. I want to seek out more laughter. I have no doubt it is good for the soul and the body. At my wellness group, we have talked about the healing power of laughter. Indeed, Cancer Treatment Centers of America points to growing research suggesting that laughter may have therapeutic value for cancer patients. There’s even laughter therapy and laughter yoga for cancer. All of this is right up my alley because laughter is decidedly positive.
So, I’m taking recommendations. Funny books, movies, shows, stand up – I’m open. Tell me what makes you laugh.
