Several things can get you through a tough day but nothing is as lasting and impactful as laughter. Nothing compares to the soothing feeling you get from a hearty laugh or the warmth of a genuine smile. You will no doubt agree with me when I say that sometimes the only remedy you need after a long grueling day is to see the smile of a loved one.
To see your spouse, a good friend, or your child smile at the sight of seeing you and for you to smile back has a way of making you forget how hostile your day was or how bad it’s going. The best thing about a smile or a burst of laughter is that it is contagious. Laughter always has a way of leaving you feeling good on the inside no matter how sad or tired you are.
If you are finding it exceptionally difficult to find humor when you are confronted with something really bad, look for something that will make you smile or laugh. Try comedy movies, animation if you are a fan, search for hilarious memes online and have yourself a hearty laugh. You could also try going through healthy reading material online. One advantage of bookmarking a humorous site or a website that is dedicated to making you laugh is that you can quickly access it anywhere and anytime of the day.
Best ways of using joy to get through a tough day.
- Finding humor in a difficult situation.
- Calling up a close friend.
- Refusing to take things too personally.
- Knowing a solution to your problem is already out there.
If you are struggling with experiencing the kind of joy you wish, try smiling more and laughing more. The simple act of doing so will help get you through a rough day and help you deal with the bad things that are happening around you. I know smiling or laughing can be challenging when you are going through tough times but if you train yourself you can get through anything in life.
I hope from today onwards, you will begin with smiling more and laughing more and enjoy the whole process. Get curious and see the humor in life.
