If you’re feeling social, consider inviting your most hilarious friends over for a game night. Playing board games or card games is a great way to bond with friends while having fun. And if you’re looking for even more laughter, try playing a game specifically designed to bring out the giggles. With some planning, you can create a night full of laughter and good memories while simultaneously sneaking in an ab workout.

Playing games with friends is a classic way to spend quality time together and have a lot of laughs. Whether you’re into board games, card games, or party games, there’s something out there for everyone. Not only does playing games foster a sense of camaraderie, but it also provides a fun outlet for competition and creativity. The best part? You can find games designed to tickle your funny bone and create hilarious memories you’ll all cherish.

If you’re looking to host a game night with friends, start by selecting a few games that everyone can enjoy. Consider games that are easy to learn but provide enough challenge to keep things interesting. Finally, choose games with a silly or absurd aspect to them, like a game that involves drawing ridiculous pictures or telling outrageous stories.

Once you’ve chosen your games, plan ahead to ensure everyone has a comfortable place to sit, plentiful snacks and drinks, and any necessary game materials like pencils or tokens. Then sit back and let the fun begin! You’ll be amazed at how quickly the hours fly by when you’re laughing and having a good time with your friends.

If you’re hesitant about hosting a game night, remember that laughter is contagious, and everyone loves to have a good time. So gather your friends, break out the board games, and let the fun begin!

6. Attend an Improv Workshop

If you’re searching for a more interactive way to tickle your funny bone, try attending an improv workshop. Not only will you enjoy the humor of others, but you’ll also have the opportunity to strengthen your communication and teamwork skills. Improv workshops involve spontaneous, unscripted skits and require participants to think on their feet and work with their fellow performers. This can lead to plenty of laughs and provide a fun way to bond with others. Back in the day, when I was a high school student taking drama classes, the improv work was always side-splitting fun. 

7. Organize a Brunch with the Besties

8. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Tickle Your Funny Bone Together

After organizing a fun brunch with your friends, it’s time to take things up a notch and step out of your comfort zone together. Whether trying a new activity like indoor skydiving, golfing, or taking an improv class, doing something that scares you can create a bond and shared experience that you’ll remember for years to come. It also gives you tons of opportunities to laugh at yourselves and your failures. Plus, pushing yourself to try new things can boost your confidence and make you feel more comfortable taking risks in other areas of your life.

Are you not feeling up to having fun? I’ve been in that place before and have good news for you. Faking laughter can provide many of the same benefits that genuine laughter does. So, it’s okay if you don’t have the energy to laugh for real. It seems there’s some merit to that old saying, “fake it until you make it,” after all.

9. Fake It Until You Make It

Now, good luck getting that out of your head. 😂

  1. Dee, I LOVED this. It’s so true that laughter is so important and makes the challenging times that much more bearable. I actually tried to ‘laugh without smiling’ as I was reading this: spoiler alert, it didn’t work. Thank you for putting a smile on my face today!

  2. I loooove the laugh! Especially the laugh where you think you’re gonna burst, you can barely even breathe and your eyes are all watery – love it! These days I have a great source of laughter – my baby girl :) but that laughter yoga definitely sounds like something I would like to try!

  3. I am literally always laughing! Life’s too short to not be, LOVE these tips. My mum goes to yoga groups and one time they made her do some weird laughing exercises. When she was showing me I couldn’t stop laughing guess it works.
    I haven’t been to a comedy show in ages – brilliant idea!!
