Do you? Yes, I do. I love to laugh. Whenever I am surrounded by my family and friends, I love to make jokes, and laugh a lot. But I don't laugh at people for no reason *smile* I think this is what makes me keep looking younger than my age LOL! I love to talk too. Sometimes I can talk non-stop, from one topic to another until friends and family get tired of listening to me *laugh* How about you? Do you love to laugh? Do you believe that it will make you look younger if you laugh a lot?

I dont know never really thought about it before but I guess it just depends on how im feeling weather if I laugh a lot or not like if im sick or feeling tired I wont laugh a lot ill barley laugh because im not in the mood to laugh but if im wide awake then I tend to laugh a lot which is good because I like to laugh it deffintley lightens up my mood when I laugh a lot.

Hello arcidy, Thank you for your response. You are right, it depends on your mood and the situation. Definitely we won't laugh a lot during a serious time. It will look like we have a little respect on what is going on. Nor do we laugh when we feel sad *smile* But it is true, laugh can lighten up the mood.

Oh yes! I remember I didn't really love to laugh when I was young because I thought not laughing was cooler (yes I was stupid!). But now with so many years of living on Earth and experience some of the difficult times that life has to offer, I laugh a lot now. I laugh at bad incidents happened, laugh at stupid people, laugh at jokes...etc. I don't know if laughing would help us look younger (hm, definitely laughing causes the wrinkles around eye areas *laughs*) but I would say that laughing makes life better! It seems less difficult to deal with sometimes.

Hello wondericequeen, I didn't say that but you agree that you were stupid for thinking that less laughing will make you cool! That is very cool, friend! *smiles* I love to laugh but I don't simply laugh a lot with people that I just get to know. Life is amazing and we should laugh a lot when we have a chance to do so. Who knows what will happen next. I came across another discussion few days back that says laughing can make you look young. Yes, I realize the wrinkles but I think it does bring 'magic' to your overall appearance *laughs*

I think laughing makes us young because the laughing makes the heart feel lighter at time and without all the stress built up in our bodies, then we tend to be happier and feel younger at heart! Right, life is just too much sometimes and we all need a good laugh to get through!

Hello wondericequeen, I fully agree with you. Sometimes when we worried too much about life, it will make us look older than our age. So I think, right now it is better to laugh a lot as long as we have something to laugh at... Laughter is the best medicine, isn't it?

Yeah, I would do that as I like to make jokes and laugh at any sort of things since I was very young and some reading taught me it's also excellent for health so I would keep practicing it,haha maybe this thing should be taught at school I spend a lot of time at home by myself so I would actually laugh a lot when I watch movies stuffs like that and I wouldn't miss an occasion to make jokes when I meet friends stuffs like that

Hello Cannonball, Sometimes, I do laugh aloud alone. It happens here too. Whenever I feel funny reading the response, I will just laugh (but not too loud until people might think that I am crazy!) Yeah, it is good for health! It will make you look younger (do you need scientific explanation on this? - I don't have any!)

Hello ssh123, Thank you for your response. Well, it is still better that you love to smile rather than showing a long face to others *laughs* I am a happy go lucky person but I don't smile a lot, sounds funny huh? I love to laugh but I am still considerate and see what kind of situation that allow me to laugh. Happy Day for you!

Laughing is the best medicine, I believe. LOL! I always laugh at the slightest pretext. I love to laugh and if I feel like laughing then I forget whether it is an appropriate moment or an inappropriate moment. Sometimes, I pay the price also for laughing at the wrong moment. Once in my school days, I laughed when the School Principal was teaching and he caught me laughing and I was given the marching orders to leave the class.

Hello dpk262006, Thank you for your response. I agree with you that laughing is the best medicine. Sometimes, it just makes you forget about everything around you I love to laugh but I seldom smile - sounds weird, right? But I always choose my crowd. You can only see the real me whenever I am with my family members and close friends. With stranger... sometimes I just forget to smile!

I do believe in this, “Laugh a lot, and when you're older, all your wrinkles will be in the right places”.So I laugh a lot.I always want to brighten the surroundings of me with my smile.I hate sitting there with a long face and wasting away the precious mo9ments of life.

Hello balasri, Thanks for your response. You have a good attitude. Every single moment in our life is precious and we don't need to waste it by pulling a long face or showing anger all the times. I agree with you.

Hello redkathy, Oh, it is different here! My husband always ask me the same question - Can you just stop talking and laughing? which I always give a negative answer. I am a very happy person whenever I am around my family and close friends. Sometimes I do feel that I have a double personalities where I can be very quiet and shy sometimes whenever I am around my colleagues, people whom I know but not close to, or strangers. But, it is good to laugh a lot right? As long as you have the right reason to laugh!

Hello hopejordan, Thank you for your response. I love to listen to my husband when he makes a joke. Sometimes it is so funny that I laugh aloud and scares my little son. He will run away and go hug his daddy instead of mummy. I laugh a lot whenever I am with my family and close friends too.

Yea I laugh and joke a lot. It beats being angry hands down, plus it helps me put out the annoying crap. Before anyone asks, I do laugh smile genuinely and its not always to keep from being angry, its just cause I want to. It also helps me relax.

Hello hersmart4ever, That is good. Isn't it great to live with people who love to laugh? I laugh a lot too and I just love to laugh. I never heard that laughing a lot will make you lose weight. If it is true, I will definitely feel happy. I don't have to go all out to exercise and maintain my figure then... *laughs*
