My guest, Kim McIntyre, is a certified laughter leader and certified stress reduction specialist who shows people how to laugh more and stress less, so they can enjoy life NOW.
In our conversation we talk about:
- a key piece to know so we can laugh more
- the mistake most people make around laughing
- what's the difference between happiness and joy
- why we don't laugh enough or experience enough joy
- the benefits of laughing and joy
- what thoughts (aka mental clutter) keeps people from laughing more
Kim has also suggestions on what to do if you really have a hard time finding more joy in your life or more things to laugh about and how we can pass on the gift of laughter.
The key piece to begin with is to recognize that you're maybe not laughing as much as you would like to.
Then to add to that awareness, be more aware of what actually makes you laugh.
I'd actually say start a list. Write down a few things, that make you laugh, and then add to it as you notice, that way when you're like craving a good laugh, you can go to your list and go: "okay, I'm going to call so and so because our conversations are usually filled with laughter"
If you laughed and found value in what Kim and I were talking about, please share it with a friend, because if you find value in it, they will too
