Welcome to the 11th Humormeister's Forum edition

Are humor and laughter coping strategies during difficult times?

It would appear so. During World War Two, the soldiers between their battles would laugh and have fun whenever and wherever possible, so that they could put the negative and unpleasant memories out of their minds.

Why! Because it is a known fact that you can't be stressed, depressed, or plagued with anxiety when you are having fun.

It was the same on the home front, there were more songs and humor efforts created than at any other time in history.

The resiliency of people is truly remarkable and when times are tough, as is the case today, people can, and must cope with an optimistic view of the future. This is more easily accomplished when humor, laughter and playfulness are employed.

Humor and laughter help the person see a lighter and brighter side and help us focus on more creative and better solutions.

People should also bear in mind hat nothing is accomplished by adopting and maintaining a pessimistic perspective, as this only translate into negative thinking and attitude.

Life is short, live it to the fullest, love with all your heart, and laugh at every opportunity.
