Laugh

Today is Day 15 of my Happiness Hacks series.

LaughLaughing is today’s hack. On most days, I get at least a chuckle at some point, usually in a conversation with someone. But a hearty belly laugh? That is definitely not a daily occurrence for me.

A few years ago, I discovered Pinterest. (Don’t even ask how badly I got sucked in for a while.) One of my favorite things on Pinterest was when I came across something funny. I started a board called Funny Stuff, and whenever I found something that made me laugh, I pinned it on there.

When I need a laugh, I click on the board and browse through some of my favorites. My kids generally don’t think the pictures are as funny as I do, but they do get a good laugh at me for laughing so hard.

I hadn’t been on the board in months, but I logged on today and found some classics that still make me laugh. As I sat at my computer laughing, my son kept asking what I was laughing about and came over to look over my shoulder and make fun of me for laughing. It was some good connection time. 🙂 I’m thinking about pinning some funny videos on there. He can help me with that, because he finds some good ones!

Check out my Funny Board on Pinterest. Maybe something will make you laugh, too?

I’m about halfway through my 31 Days of Happiness Hacks series
for the Write 31 Days Challenge.
Thank you for reading!
