Did you know today is a holiday? Yeppers, it’s Laugh and Get Rich Day. Now you probably think this is a silly excuse for a holiday, and you could be right. However let’s think about this for a minute. Science has proven that laughter actually can be medicinal. After all, laughter is directly connected to the production of endorphins, those happy hormones that lift mood and reduce pain. Gotta love ‘em. Don’t you feel better after a good laugh? I sure do.
Now about the getting rich part—the belief is that the more you laugh, the less stress you feel which makes you far more creative. Being more creative could lead you to an idea that shakes up your profession and lands you a whopper of a raise. Okay, that makes me laugh! Yet I do believe that laughter can increase creativity—for me anyway.
So do me a favor, will you? Enjoy a rip-roarin’ belly laugh or rogue giggle attack today, won’t you? And then tell me what you think of this one-of-a-kind holiday!
