funny quotes to cheer you up

Remembering funny quotes to cheer you up not only gets you through difficult times, but quotes can also give us a good laugh and memories to look back at.

Happiness has a ton of benefits. Laughter helps reduce stress hormones, which can boost your immune system. It’s not that you can’t be serious when the time comes, but you sometimes we just have to realize that we shouldn’t take everything so seriously all the time.

Endorphins are released when we are happy, which improves our overall health. People who smile or laugh more are said to be more attractive. It makes sense to think that those who enjoy laughing and humor are naturally the kind of people we like to flock to.

Being alone and feeling alone are two different things. Being alone can mean you separate yourself intentionally from others, but we don't necessarily dislike alone time.

Feeling alone, though, is different. Even if you’re in a crowded room, or you’re taking up tasks on your own, then there’s an absence called joy in our lives. Joy is when we find the upside to everything, even if it’s throwing out a funny remark as a coping mechanism, and it's joy and happiness that can make us feel less alone.

Life has its ups and downs, but when we add laughter into the mix and we choose happiness for ourselves, our perspective on life changes dramatically. Instead of being worried or letting our anxiety get the best of us, even remembering humorous quotes can brighten our day in minutes.

So if you're feeling down or alone — especially in these hard times — use these funny quotes to cheer you up when you need it most. Let these inspiring quotes help you keep your head up — get a pen and paper, and choose the ones that make you smile to hold with you.
