Lift your spirits and boost your immune system with one easy spiritual practice – laughter. Find your favorite comedy movies, look up the 50 best jokes, share bad puns. This isn’t an escape, it’s a conscious inoculation against the viruses we are exposed to – not just the virus that causes disease, but also the virus of fear, anxiety, depression, anger, and loneliness. Host a watch party on Facebook of your favorite old Sunday morning cartoons, comic, or late-night talk show skit. Practice laughter yoga. Be silly with your kids and grandkids. Especially in difficult times, laughter is healing medicine.
I’ll start – a priest, a rabbit, and a minister walk into a bar. The rabbit says ‘I might be a typo.” Thanks, Thom Graham for that one. I needed it!
