Finding Laughter: Suggestions From Readers (Day 20)
Don’t all bloggers love comments? This is not only because there can be a connection; but also because you can learn from the comments. Below are comments that have helped educate me further about laughter.
WHY PEOPLE LAUGH
Jodi – My most consistent source of laughter is my now four-year-old daughter but that doesn’t help you much! Maybe a comedy podcast to listen to on the way to work?
MADE ME GO “AHHHHH”
Tammy – Being a life coach that specializes in Grief and Loss, I fully understand the journey to laughter and joy. I would recommend the book “I’d rather be Laughing ” by Marilyn Meberg.
Dianne – A friend recommended this book to me when I was “sitting on my nest,” pregnant with twins. Much laughter here! Worms in My Tea, and Other Mixed Blessings … By Becky Freeman.
Anita – I’ve never read a book on laughter before–but I have read a lot of funny books 🙂. I especially love Patrick F. McManus’ books
Carol – Marilyn Meberg and Patsy Clairmont have some great books filled with laughter and I agree with Anita, Patrick McManus books leave me in hysterics. Of course, those are funnier if you’ve ever done the outdoorsy things. There are some great youtube videos too!
Jenn – For The Love, by Jen Hatmaker was very funny and so relatable.
Anita – funny you should mention Lincoln–I have a book of his stories, jokes and riddles published in the 1800s! I need to pull it out and look it over (it belonged to my great grandpa).
MOVIES AND INTERNET SUGGESTIONS
Karrilee – Youtube and netflix are great for comedians… some of our favorites are Brian Regan, John Mulaney, Angelah Johnson, Kathleen Madigan.
Your Turn . . . Do you have anything else you would add to these categories?
I am joining 100’s of others at #write31days to write every day in October 2015 on a single topic. My topic is 31 Days of Finding Laughter. I will spend time each day studying laughter to see if I can improve my laughter quotient.
