Greetings fellow Hivers! It's been far too long since the Natural Medicine Community hosted a challenge, and considering the troubled times we are living in, we think humor and laughter are much needed natural medicines! We're getting together with @holos-lotus to have a much needed giggle, and we hope you'll join us!
A good sense of humor and a few laughs can often carry us through the hardest of times, and the health benefits of laughter have been scientifically proven in various studies around the globe.
This is why we've decided to create the...
But Isn't Cancel Culture Killing Comedy?
Unfortunately there have been some downsides to humanity's new state of "ultra-wokeness", and cancel culture is one of those downsides. With this in mind, it's probably best not to dive into overly controversial things when creating content for this challenge - and certainly please don't be unkind or poke fun of particular groups of people. The world is divided enough, don't you think? Let's keep it loving and light!
How Can I Participate?
In case you're having trouble drumming up ideas for a #LaughterIsMedicine post, here are some potential topics!
- Tell us a funny true story from from your life, or even dive into fiction if you like.
- Prepare a fake yoga lesson and invent your own poses, etc.
- Tell us why a vegan diet is the best in the style of an American wrestling callout video.
- If you're poetic, perhaps a humor-laced poem would do the trick.
- Are you a musician? Well, it's obvious the possibilities are endless with that skillset.
- Share with us the health benefits of laughter, citing any relevant scientific evidence or studies.
- Even funny GIFs are welcome.....look at me in the above GIF manifesting a baguette with will-power.
