They say laughter is the best medicine and it’s so true, especially when it comes to laughing with your spouse.
In our latest Youtube video, my wife Susan and I share our “favorites” — items that we can’t live without. It’s a fun little section we do on our Youtube channel and as this particular filming session shows, one in which we can laugh and make jokes and fall over in giggles like two pre-teen girls.
I’ve learned a lot from vlogging on Youtube but one of the best lessons I’ve discovered is to have more fun with my wife. Laughing and being silly isn’t just something I want to enjoy with my kids, it’s something I want to enjoy with my wife because it brings us closer together and dissolves the stress and tension associated with being parents and partners.
I’m not suggesting that you start a Youtube channel so that you and your spouse can giggle uncontrollably (though go for it if you wish!). Instead, watch a funny movie or TV show. Turn on Netflix and choose a comedian’s stand up special. For that matter, go to an actual comedy club and watch a show. Find a funny play being produced in your city. Watch hilarious bloopers on Youtube or SNL skits with Melissa McCarthy.
And if you want to start out small, you can watch the video below and giggle along with me and my wife, who says a hilarious joke about Trump’s hands.
