Break for Laughter

   Are you chasing your dreams?  Pushing toward your goals?  Working at being more and better?  Good for you!  We all need to be living on purpose and intentionally. Instead of one more thing to work on or one more way to squeeze a little more out of your day, what if we just take a laugh break.

    I just want to laugh today.  Sure I’ll still work on my list and follow my plan but I’d like a laugh break.  

    I never said most of the things I said. -Yogi Berra
    Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?  - Robin Williams

    A two year old is kind of like having a blender, but you don’t have a top for it. - Jerry Seinfeld
    Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.  - George Burns

    We owe a lot to Thomas Edison - if it wasn’t for him, we’d be watching television by candlelight.  - Milton Berle

    If love is the answer, could you please rephrase the question?  - Lily Tomlin

    The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. -Mark Twain
    I failed to make the chess team because of my height. -Woody Allen

    If God wanted us to fly, He would have given us tickets. - Mel Brooks

    If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? -Abraham Lincoln

    I love to go to Washington - if only to be near my money. -Bob Hope

   Mary Poppins said a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.   It's possible that she had the wrong medicine.  According to the scientists and researchers, laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts your energy, diminishes pain and protects you from the damaging impact of stress.  Apparently, laughter is the best medicine (no sugar required).

    What are you doing to consistently take laugh breaks?

(Full Disclosure: Perhaps one of the reasons I wanted to laugh today is because a guest blog I wrote on grief posted yesterday.  If you are grieving, check out the series Permission to Grieve at For the Love of Dixie. In yesterday’s Post, The Roller Coaster of Life, I share how I learned to grieve well.)
