John and I love to laugh, play and have fun together. It adds an extra dimension and is fundamental aspect to our relationship and deep love for each other.
It flows naturally into our relationship, but there are times when we get caught up in the flow of life and we need to remind ourselves let's go and have fun - whether it's dancing, hiking, going to a comedy club, or sit in front of the TV watching a comedy.
Some couples get so caught up in worries and pressure of life they forget how to laugh and play together.
Laughter and humour is important in relationships as it develops a deeper connection, trust and appreciation between the couple.
Without dedicating time to laughter and play the relationship can begin to feel stuck and dull.
Here are some tips to injecting more fun and joy into your relationship
Make time to have fun together
Create space to do something fun together such as going to a comedy club, watching a comedy, plan a fun evening together.
The importance of movement
When a relationship is stuck in old patterns of behaviour, stresses and pain it is important to move.
Movement helps to create change, and release old patterns. Go for a walk together or go out dancing together and laugh, have fun and enjoy together. Many times I have suggested to a client - go out dancing and move the body! They often report back in the next session and say they went out dancing and re-connected with their partner through movement and laughter. They were surprised something so simple can enrich their relationship.
Reminisce about a humorous moment together
Remember a funny moment, laughing and talking about it helps to release endorphins into the body which help you to feel more relaxed and happy. The more you laugh the more relaxed, joyful and happy you will feel.
Laughter is good for the body, mind and soul
Studies have shown that laughter is good for the mind, body and spirit and helps to lift spirits, reduces stresses, boost the immune system and relaxes the muscles and calms the mind. So it's hardly surprising that laughter is a vital part of a happy and strong relationship.
Laughter is fun, joyful and playful and good relationships are also full of joy, play and laughter.
