Having a good time feels fantastic, right? In the moment of laughing it is important to soak in every moment. The reason why this is important, is because we are less likely to forget about a moment if we associate more things with it. Let me explain:
Associate to remember
Whenever you are laughing, or smiling, try to take in as much as you can. What does the room smell like? What colour was your friend’s top?
If you can remember these things, you are more likely to retune yourself into that moment. But why would you want to remember a laugh with this level of detail?
Happy moments help us through sad(er) moment(s)
Life itself is not easy: life throws up several obstacles, which can make it seem unfair. But whenever you are having a bad day, or are feeling sad because of what happened recently, try to remember what colour that top was, or what the smell smelt like. Remember this level of detail may help you smile quicker.
Without even researching this topic, I know that laughing binds people together. But I also know that smiling helps whenever you are not feeling great. Smiling, and laughing, becomes the norm once you’re feeling okay. So smile more, laugh more, get binding with other people — you will feel better for it.
Sharing laughs is fun. Smiling can lead to a laugh. It’s a good cycle to get into!
