We are all infectious.
What matters is what type of
infectious person we are.
Have you ever noticed that some people's laughter is infectious; it makes you
laugh. The average child laughs at least 100-200 times a day. But, the average
adult only laughs 10 to 15 times a day! As per e.e. cummings words, "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."
One of your most valuable assets is a good sense of humor. In general,
humorous people are fun to be with, have less stress and a healthier
outlook on life. Humor, truly is a great stress reliever!
Norman Cousins quote of, "What was significant about the laughter . . .
was not just the fact that it provides internal exercise for a person . . .
form of jogging for the innards, but that it creates a mood in which the other positive emotions can be put to work, too."
Other people possess so much enthusiasm it rubs off on those around
them. Henry Truman said, "I studied the lives of great men and famous women, and I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy and enthusiasm."
There are also people who have such a positive outlook on life that you find
talking with them helps you to be positive. And, there are those who are so
motivated to excel they actually inspire others! These people have less stress
in their life as they find the positive and the humor in situations.
On the other hand, some people are so depressing, so negative, and so
cynical, they only bring you down. A quote by Henry Ward Beecher,
"A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs - jolted by every pebble in the road."
Bob Newhart once said, "Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
When you reflect on Mr. Newhart's thought, you will see that laughter actually can bring us stress relief.
Which type of infectious person are you?
