The Importance of Keeping Humor… especially during hard times.


One of the best ways to keep a sense of humor during difficult times is to laugh. And it’s not just a good idea, it’s a necessity.

Laughter is beneficial for your health, and can help you get through tough times. It can even make you more productive.

Now remember, you don’t have to be in a comedy club to laugh. You can always find things that are funny in your life and the world around you – even if they’re not what you would consider “traditional” sources of humor.

One of the funniest books I’ve ever read is Davis Sedaris’s “Me Talk Pretty One Day ( “. Since I’m an author, I’m not a fan of promoting other writers’ work, but that just shows how strongly I feel about helping the world (and you) see how important humor is. Of course, humor – like reading – is subjective… which means what I think is funny might not be as funny to you. Just sayin’ in case you read his book and don’t smile.


Humor is also a very powerful tool that can be used to break the ice, reduce stress, and build relationships. It can also be used to help people through difficult times – so you’re not only helping yourself, you can help others, too!

One of the most important things to remember about humor is: It helps us deal with the pressures of the world and brings joy to our lives. It’s important to maintain a sense of humor in order to be healthy mentally and physically.

NOW IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE MOOD TO LAUGH and just want to read some good, suspense-thrillers, my books are always there for you ( As for me, I’m pretty much around all the time too – laughing (typically, at myself).

Keep smiling and when it shows up, please enjoy life’s humor.
