Today’s Challenge: Laugh!

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

-E.E. Cummings

May 19th marked Day of Joy, the first of three events for the In One Day project.  My two friends and I traveled through three parks in DC with volunteers leading the public in laughter exercises.  I think everyone who participated (including myself) was initially self-conscious at first at this organized, raucous, public display.  However, after the first minute, people began to let go and genuinely laugh! It was a great way to spend a Saturday!

I meant to post this before this event, but it doesn’t really matter because you should laugh everyday!

Plus, science has proven the benefits of laughter with chemical responses in your brain through release of endorphin and yadda yadda yadda.

The point is, unless you decide to do it at a funeral or some other socially inappropriate moment, laughing only has benefits.

So, go on! Laugh!
