Laugh at oneself is the best therapy in the face of adversity

Many times I get up from the couch or the bed without wanting to do anything. From the moment I think about the amount of things I have to do during the week, I sometimes get drunk with a sense of considerable stress. The worst thing is that on many occasions I have to deal with all kinds of improvisers that really were not in my "agenda".

However, with the passage of time I have realized that if these problems have no solution, it is not worth much to put all our effort to solve them. In fact, one of the best ways to take a little "iron out of the matter" is through laughter. But not one either. On this occasion I refer to that laugh that comes from the depths of our being and that makes us laugh a little ourselves.

Have you never tried it? Well, from NatureVia we will tell you some of the many benefits of laughing at yourself and that you should therefore practice in your daily life. Surely if you do you will face your problems with much more humor and optimism!

With humor everything is easier

Nobody said that anything in this life would be easy. The one who wants something has to really pursue it. It is no use staying at home lamenting our bad luck. Do not you realize that there are many more people in your same or worse situation? Given this, there is no other option but to put all our effort and effort. Remember that the will moves mountains and therefore you must be aware that you are capable of anything.

If we add a bit of humor to all this, you can be sure that everything will be much easier. You can not imagine the power that a simple laugh can have. Numerous scientific studies of the most relevant universities in the world have come to the conclusion that laughter is like the "endorphin" of our brain. We are sure that many of you, after laughing out loud with any friend or family member, have felt much better then really well. Although in the process we had to suffer all kinds of belly pains.

Well the same happens when we face any adversity in our lives. If we have been the cause of it, there is no alternative but to find a solution as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you can always laugh a little about yourself, thus getting to see everything from a more positive perspective.

Your friends will thank you

When we stay with our friends, we always look for a good time with them in order to disconnect a bit of all our worries. The mere fact of going out on the street, taking a breath of fresh air and meeting with "lifelong" friendships will simply make all of our problems second.

And if you can already enjoy those companies that are able to get a smile or laughter every time they tell a joke or an anecdote, well better than better. With this we are not saying that you take everything as a joke. There will be situations in which there will be no choice but to be serious and keep your composure. However, if we are in a somewhat more relaxed and relaxed situation, it will not hurt us to laugh a little since we are basically in this life to be happy.

If we add to this the capacity to laugh at oneself, we have the complete certainty that your friends will thank you in the short term. Moreover, this will also help you to further strengthen your bonds and enjoy a much more lasting friendship.

In other articles we have talked about the importance of surrounding ourselves with positive people in our lives. And as "positivism" and "laughter" are two terms that go hand in hand, surely laughter will be the many times the solution to your problems.

It will help to know you better and strengthen your self-esteem

Laughter therapy has been postulated as one of the great ways to strengthen our self-esteem and confidence. Nobody knows themselves better than oneself. That is why it is extremely important to practice laugh therapy every once in a while whenever you have any problematic situation. When you overcome it with humor and optimism, in the long run both your self-esteem and confidence will be reinforced.

Have you already realized the amount of benefits that exist when it comes to laughing at yourself? If you have never tried it, from here we encourage you to stand in front of a mirror and smile a little forcibly. Surely sooner or later you will loose some laughter!
