Laughter is a vital part of coping with life, let alone life with chronic pain. It's so important it will get a separate tip all of it's own.
Finding ways to laugh can be a little tricky if life feels overwhelming, even more so if constant pain has already begun to get you down. One of the easiest ways to laugh, feel happier and therefore in less pain is to do something childish.
Today neighbour and I made birthday cake for her daughter, and giggled like a pair of kids as we licked the buttercream off the beaters. Yesterday glorious sunshine meant I got to go for the first paddle of the year; kicking water into the air never loses it's appeal, no matter how old we get, as irresistible as kicking through autumn leaves.
Anything will do, so long as it's a bit silly and childish, it might only take a second to do, but it'll brighten your whole day and help improve your pain. What childish moments have brightened up your day today?
