Laughing tips for beginners
1. Make a choice to laugh and make a decision
to be playful and to have fun.
2. Show up every day.
3. Make it easy – do not try hard.
4. Leave your “serious mind” behind and bring a happy face with you.
5. Do not over-think! You will have 23+ hours to think more
6. Allow it – laughter is inside of us. It is our true nature.
8. Relax and Let Go
9. Take yourself lightly – laugh at yourself.
10. Challenge your thoughts and beliefs: If you think: “I do not know how to laugh”, “I need to have a reason”, “I have to feel good” etc.
11.Do not multi-task.
12. Open your mouth wide, keep your chin up, and stick your tongue out.
13. Experiment with position – sit, jump and shake, lie down, etc.
14. Experiment with different laughs – high pitch laugh, low pitch laugh.
15. Echo someone’s laughter.
16. SILLY is OK… it is perfectly OK and freeing to make funny sounds, funny noises, singing, talking in Gibberish and laughing out loud. Children do it all the time!
17. Enjoy the present moment and opportunity to laugh with others.
18. If you still do not feel like laughing- laugh gently anyway.
19. Trust the Playful Child inside of you – she/he will take you all the way to your blissful playground.
20. Call back for more and bring your friends and family members.
