Laughter & Humor Really Are the Best Medicine

robinbird Laughter & Humor Really Are the Best Medicine

One thing about a seasonal change is, well, change! On our farm, we have become hosts to various nests – owls, sparrows, robins and more. We have a mated pair of coywolves who have made a den in the ravine and all manner of other creatures including some very bold raccoons seem to think it’s ok to stroll past our house in broad daylight like they own the place and we don’t count. Now thankfully, we have a ten-foot fence around the back of the compound so my teeny Pomeranians don’t get eaten, but I always have to go out with them and supervise just in case the pair of red-tailed hawks that hang out in the trees decide they look like snacks. This morning I went out with the fluff balls and stood under a new robin’s nest (or should I say condo) that she skillfully built right above the door and whose occupant decided to poop on my head. I was so upset for a moment I could not believe I had to change my clothes since I had an interview online and fix my hair yadaydaya!! But I stopped pretty quickly and I just had to laugh! Bird poop is not the end of the world and if I had to go on right away I could have pretended it was toothpaste HA!

Never a dull moment at Zen Farm.

This week’s Goddess Power Oracle reading is all about having a sense of humor around our revelations brought into light by the symbolism of the Goddess Yhi. It’s asking us to really trust that our new beginnings are called new for a reason. New means we might not know how, or might need to learn something, might not know the steps, etc. We are brimming with potential this week, says Cerridwyn, but this is all uncharted if it’s new, so how can we expect ourselves to have all the answers, know the steps, given that new doesn’t mean familiar or “the same as before”.

laughing Laugh Your Way To Reduce Stress
If you are taking life and yourself too seriously, you are guaranteeing a sure shot way to lead a stressful life.Life for everyone is filled with hassles, inconveniences and myriads of nonsensical nuances, which could be making you feel quite crazy. It is up to you to keep your attitude straight and not allow stress to be the winner of the game. Learn to diffuse most of the stress by keeping a positive attitude and looking at the humorous side of life.


LAUGH YOUR WAY TO REDUCE STRESS

Humor is considered the greatest stress reducer as it naturally reduces stress in the following ways:


1. RELAXES  YOUR BODY
The physical act of laughing reduces the physiological stress level while laughing. When you laugh your Blood Pressure drops, heart rate lowers and your brain releases endorphins that relax the mind.

2. ENHANCED IMMUNITY

Research has proved that laughter reduces stress hormones, increases production of disease resisting T cells and increases the chemical Interferon and consequently boosts the immune system.

3. LEARN TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF

This robs others of the satisfaction of trying to pull your leg.

4. GIVES YOU PERSPECTIVE

You view a stressful situation in a particular way and more objectively.You thereby reduce the stress experience.
In our daily lives we are constantly faced with situations that are causing stress. Keeping ourselves isolated does not help in any way. For as long as we are social beings, stress will accrue in our lives, in some form or the other.

HELPING OTHERS HELPS US

Doing something for others is a stress buffer. Small acts of kindness go a long way. We can evaluate our own helping hand in various ways


1. CONNECTS YOU

Helping others enhances your personal social support system, this in turn increases your level of connectivity.
 
2. KEEPS YOU BUSY

Stress mounts when you have time hanging on your hands. Being busy distracts you from your own worries . You can focus your attention on something more rewarding.

 3. GIVES A SENSE OF PURPOSE

You always feel better when you help. Makes you feel life is worthwhile and there is a sense of meaning, purpose and value.

4. INCREASES SENSE OF SELF WORTH

Self esteem is enhanced through helping others. There are lesser chances of feeling depressed. Allan Luke founder of Center for Non Profit Leadership at Fordham University found that commonly reported stress symptoms like a headache, arthritis pain and back pain were masked by the positive movement of the volunteers. Phyllis Moen a professor at Cornell University discovered that women who volunteered to help others were less depressed and more satisfied with their lives.


RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

Some small randomly done acts go a long way in producing satisfying feelings for you as well as the people for whom those acts are performed and they are benefiting from these small gestures.

1. A kind word
2. A small helpful deed
3. A common act of courtesy

These could go a long way in giving joy.

A COSMIC DIMENSION

It is imperative for us to understand coming to grips with the unknown. It is only when we understand life from its true perspective do we truly de-stress. Thinking of a higher purpose always keeps us more steady.

FAITH


This is truly a great stress buffer. It enhances your ability to cope with life by providing the following:

1. PROVIDING A MEANING
What is life all about, this is a ethical question bothering all of us.

2. STRENGTHENS VALUES
Love and kindness need to be promoted. We need to condemn stress producing feelings like anger, hostility, aggression.

3.HOPE AND ACCEPTANCE
Helps us to encourage a feeling of optimism. A level of faithfulness.

4. FAITH UNITES
Helps in bringing people together by uniting them with a common happy focus.

HEALING POWER OF DOING GOOD

Most volunteering experiences have been proven to be highly stress management effective. Finding such experiences is very healing. We must exert to reach others so that you can find an area of work where you can find joy.

Stress for every individual is a unique experience and yet most of the causes are quite common.

Stretch yourself to heal others and feel the healing happen within you. .De stress others to de stress yourself.
