Zeni 6 moIn many of the classes I teach, we do something called laughter therapy and use the vowels to practice laughing together. Through the exercise, we recognize the physical, mental/emotional, and relational benefits of laughter. God created a natural remedy in laughter, which some call the best medicine.
I always find it interesting to see who is more ready to participate in the activity—to laugh with me—and who is more hesitant. However, once I get started and laugh in a ridiculous manner, their guards come down and many of the women can’t help but laugh with me.
Laughter is contagious. And the genuine belly-laughter of a baby or small child is the best!
When my niece, Zeni was six months old, and coming into her own personality, she started learning to laugh. Her older brother, Kadesh, loved to make her laugh and one night he really got her going. He even ran over to Pops (my dad) to make sure he knew that Zeni was laughing (all of which dad captured on video).
Laughter unites us. The shared memories and moments create a lasting impression of love and joy. And that night, we spent several minutes laughing together and delighting in the simple things that create laughter for a child.
Laughter is good for the soul. In that moment, nothing else mattered. I felt renewed by that time of laughter and pure joy. We relished the moment and, thanks to modern technology, can relive it with the click of a button.
Take a moment to laugh today. Find joy in the simple things and if you can’t find anyone to laugh with, message me and I’ll share with you the contagious laughter of my nephew and niece!
