Think about it Thursday… Laugh Often, Laugh Deeply.
Did you know that laughter is an important component to being our lives as humans… and it is also very much part of dying?
According to an article I read on Psychology Today, ” A study done at Kent State and reported in the American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care revealed that humor was present in 85 percent of 132 observed nurse based visits. Amazingly, they found that 70 percent of the humor was initiated by the patient.”
I personally found this to be true during the 2 years I experienced profound grief when I lost 28 people from my life. I also learned that I had a way to gently ease humor into situations after someone had passed away, which I found to be a gift. ❤
