This time of year is all about deadlines. Whether it’s for your job or finals at school – the stress keeps coming! In order to keep you from going insane through these hard times, we have a few at home remedies to keep yourself laughing.
1. Visit a water park. For some reason, you can’t help but giggle when step aboard a waterslide. Between the twists, turns and men in ridiculous Speedos, you’re sure to burst out laughing. Let’s just hope banana-hammock-boy doesn’t hear you. If you don’t live in a warm climate, there are some indoor water parks across the country where you can have just as much fun.
2. Go to a comedy club. Some can be really bad and stupid, but you can make them hilarious if the comedians aren’t achieving their main goal.
3. Go to a movie or rent one. Nothing like a good Adam Sandler flick to ease away the pain of a bad work week.
4. Start dancing. Whether you are alone or at home with some girlfriends – somehow you can dance the pain out of any problem. Crank up the volume and start moving!
5. Let your boyfriend know. Usually, you will get a good tickle from him if you hint around enough. Even if you don’t like being ticklish – a flirtatious bit from your man definitely does the body good!
6. Be a little inappropriate. This might be gross, but any bathroom humor can usually get others going.
7. Play a prank. Hopefully nothing too mean, but sometimes if you mess up someone else’s day for five minutes, the look on their faces should fill you with laughter.
8. Imitate. For some reason, every time someone tries to interpret a celebrity it is a knee slapping good time. We recommend Rosie O’Donnell, Sharon Stone and Sarah Palin.
9. Play dress-up. Don’t be afraid to act like a little girl again. Go into your mom’s closet and get all of those bad bridesmaid dresses that she kept for some reason. One of two things can happen: it’s back in style and you’ve got a new look or it’s bad – really bad. What a laugh!
10. Have a cocktail or two. When worst comes to worst, fold up your laptop and have a drink. Sometimes, it’s the best medicine.
