Be Silly

“Be crazy. Be stupid. Be silly. Be weird. Be whatever.

Because life is too short to be anything but happy.”

~ Hoda Kotb

Many years ago we had this silly turkey hat and my daughter posed for a million crazy fun photos in that silly hat. It was a prelude to Thanksgiving dinner that year and continues to bring me joy whenever I come across the photo record of that day. Do you ever let yourself just Be Silly? I’ve got to admit that I am not very good at it myself. But science tells us that being silly and indulging in humor can boost our immune system, lower blood pressure and even relieve chronic pain! Sigmund Freud believed that humor was a way of releasing built up tension. Imagine that?! Laughter really is good medicine. I resolve to be a little better about being silly and weird. How about you?
