When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?
You know the one, where you are rolling around the floor holding your stomach whilst the laughter tears are streaming from your eyes?
When our laughter comes from the core of our being, it permeates every cell in our physical selves, beginning in the centre and radiating outward, until we are not merely belly laughing but rather body laughing.
It’s so easy to laugh when we feel good, but it is when our world turns upside down that we most need laughter in our lives.
After my son Dan’s funeral in 2011, every night for a couple of months, my husband and I would watch our favourite comedy show, Coupling.
Coupling is a 2001 – 2004 British comedy series about two people who get together and bring with them baggage from their past, friends, and ex-partners – people who would never meet under normal circumstances. There are only 28 episodes and all of them are hilarious. Its like Friends though the writing is so much more hilarious.
Did you know that many studies show that “laughing truly is the best medicine?”
