Laughter is the best medicine!

I came across this picture (below) one day and it cracked me up! I found it historical because it rang so true to the thoughts that frequent my mind. Many times when I have a simple aliment I immediately think I am dying. Whether it be a cold, or a headache or even a pimple! Detaching from my own anxiety, and examining how my thoughts are from an outsider’s perspective, it can be pretty funny.

Laughter has really helped me in the healing process because laughing at something I am afraid of takes the power away from it. It allows my anxiety to feel small and insignificant when I mock it. Obviously, this does not make it go away, but in moments I am able to laugh, it makes me feel so much better. Fear only strengthens anxiety, so in to counteract the effects, I try to laugh!
