Tuesday Feeding Your Soul: Laughter

Monday night AKB was awesome. I needed a good sweaty exercise after all the Super Bowl FOOD! I thought I might be a little sore after my 13 mile run on Sunday, but my legs are feeling great! I have been doing some stretches that have opened up my hips, I just need to find some good stretches for my IT BANDS, any suggestions????? I also need to get new shoes soon, my little Asics have about had it!

I woke up a little early this morning to make sure I got is some YogaDownload! It felt so needed and so refreshing. I wanted to do it yesterday, but I ran out of time.

I decided to make some Blueberry Oats this morning.

    As I drove home last night, after having a fun chat with my friend Christina, I felt full. Not the kind of full that food satisfies my belly with but the kind of full that leaves me satisfied because of some loving and encouraging friends that I am blessed with. I then thought to myself, what else feeds my soul? What is it that connects me to who I am and brings out the best in who I am, and one word came to mind was LAUGHTER!

    “What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.” ~Yiddish Proverb

    When was the last time I laughed, I mean really laughed? Well I am married to one of the funniest guys I know who makes me laugh all the time, and television can usually be pretty funny(when I am not watching Law and Order). I love me some romantic comedy and even just comedy shows in general make me laugh(tactful ones). Why don’t we laugh more often in our everyday lives, why can’t we just be more funny! I love to be around funny people they make my heart smile. I challenge you to laugh for your own soul today, I even hear it burns more calories🙂

    Doctors say "Laughter is the best medicine " How many times in a day do you laugh? Or is there something in your life that prevents you from laughing….

    “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” ~e.e. cummings
