Watch a comedy

After your day’s work is done, pop in or dial up a favorite movie or television show. Different things make different people laugh — for example, Monty Python and the Holy Grail may not be your cup of tea, but Caddyshack is. You can also check out reruns of old favorites like Mork & Mindy or Cheers.

Go out with a friend

Banish your blues by getting out of the house with a dear friend. Check out a new local pub or a friendly diner and share old stories, and new ones as well. If the weather is nice, go to a local park, or take a stroll around the city square. Being with one you love can brighten your mood and put laughter back into your life, where it belongs.

Babysit a young child

Kids can be a lot of work, but they are not only adorable, they are completely and totally hilarious at times. Listen, really listen, to the quirky things they say. They look at life differently than we as adults do, and it can be funny and quite refreshing to experience the day through a child’s eyes.

Watch a kid’s movie

Children’s movies are definitely not just for children. They are usually written with quick wit and funny dialogue because filmmakers know that adults often accompany their kids to the theater. Older children’s movies can bring back pleasant memories and they can be fun to show to your kids as you share your childhood with them.

Add funny to Facebook

In addition to keeping up with friends and family and your favorite organizations and businesses, add funny and sweet Facebook pages to your news feed. Check out these funny Facebook pages and add a few from our favorites. If you love animals, these funny animal Facebook pages may be good additions also.
