Update: We still stand by this roundup of laughter, anxiety, and the overachieving chick — you may want to check out our more recent discussion (with recommendations!) on how to deal with anxiety through laughter.
I’ve been thinking lately about how important laughter is — specifically, how important it is to have an honest-to-god giggle fest or a nice deep belly laugh. For my $.02, I feel like it helps me manage anxiety and stress, and for some reason it puts things in perspective. Even if I’m having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, a bit of laughter reminds me that it isn’t quite so bad.
At various points in my life I’ve tried to ensure that I get at least one good chuckle a day — in college it was watching a Simpson reruns; in later years it was reading TiVoing The Daily Show, or reading The Onion or Go Fug Yourself. It’s a habit that has fallen by the wayside as life got busier, but that I’d like to pick up again.
So, ladies, which are your favorite spots for a good chuckle or pick-me-up? I swear, I am keeping the Banana Slicer bookmarked for my next rainy day — and I hate to admit it but this video (“Baby trashes bar in Las Palmas”, embed below) makes me die laughing every time.
What are some of the funniest things that you’ve seen on YouTube, or read on the Internet? Where do you go for a good dose of laughter?
