The 12 Stress Less Days to Christmas: Day 7
Day #7: Don’t forget your sense of humour!
What makes you laugh?
- your pets?
- your children?
- a comedy programme?
- a funny cartoon, picture or video?
- a colleague?
The average adult laughs 15 times a day.
The average 4 yr old laughs 400 times!
Are you getting your daily quota?
I’ve got some favourites that I can rely on to make me smile or laugh out loud. I’m sure you have yours too.
I’m a fan of Bob Newhart: “Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.”
Perhaps this is a good mantra for those more stressful times??
You may be familiar with Bob Newhart’s Driving Instructor sketch. (Starts about 1 min 40 seconds in.)
I remember laughing out loud when I first saw Peter Kay’s Biscuit Dunking sketch (starts 1 minute in)
