Laughter is the best medicine, maybe not literally but it does help. When we laugh, there’s a chemical occurrence going on in our brains but there’s an emotional response as well. We forget our troubles and we enjoy the moment. Even if it is just a moment, it’s a moment of our lives when nothing else mattered. One of the best and easiest random acts of kindness one can do is to share something funny with others.
If we share something funny with someone randomly, we give them a smile, a laugh, a moment in their lives that may be the best they’ve had in awhile.
Random Act of Kindness
Everyone has surely heard about random acts of kindness but may not be sure exactly what constitutes one. All you need to do is something nice for someone else. It doesn’t matter how big the act is or for whom you get the act done for. All that matters is that it is completely random and that you enjoy doing it as much as the other person enjoys it. Some examples of random acts can be found all over Good In Deed.
Laughter can happen almost anywhere and at any time. It is an expression of joy that we all share at any given moment. With the age of the internet, anyone with access can share something funny with just a few taps or clicks. Unfortunately, not everyone can share in that joke, that meme or that GIF. Luckily, there are other ways to share laughter with someone. We can do so with our words or acts. A great random act of kindness is to share something funny with someone. Maybe someone in your life is going through a tough time, maybe not. It doesn’t matter why you share it, just share it.
How to Share Something Funny
The internet makes sharing with family and friends easy. Simply post to Facebook or Instagram, write a tweet or make a funny Snap. You can share something funny in just about any way you’d like. The question is, how do you share with a complete stranger? Moments come and go and we pass strangers regularly in our day to day lives. In those moments we can share a joke or tell a tale of something funny. In that moment, you and a stranger become equals in laughter. Maybe, in that moment, you can show someone in need that there is someone who cares about their joy and they’re not alone.
