How Does Laughter Brighten Your Day?
**Disclosure: This is a post written by me on behalf of United HealthCare. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own.
Ever heard the saying that laughter is the best medicine? Well, it’s true! It can help you relieve stress and has so much healing power. Plus, it’s infectious! If someone around you is laughing and happy, you want to naturally join in on the fun.
This month is a fun photo challenge with Source4Women because they are encouraging you to post a photo of your laughter in action! If you’re unfamiliar with Source 4Women, it’s a community created by United Healthcare that provides healthy living information on things like nutrition exercise, health screenings and more for women. Every month they do a photo contest to encourage you to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
I was really excited about this month’s photo challenge because I had the perfect photo for it. It might even be one of my favorite photos ever. It’s from our newborn photo shoot we had with Baby Awesome back in January. We wanted to capture some fun moments of her being a newborn. We tried to get one of those cute “naked” photos where the baby is laying with her butt in the air sleeping. Well, that didn’t work out too well and it sent Baby Awesome into a crying fit. We had a bottle of pumped milk on hand so I fed it to her to calm her down. As I was feeding her, she uh “did her business” using my hand as a diaper. I was in total shock and just started hysterically laughing. The photographer was right there and captured this beautiful moment:
I just love this photo so much. It captures the moment so perfectly. Right after this photo was taken we immediately had to give her a bath. It’s amazing how the best pictures come from spontaneous moments like these. I’m so glad we have this photo because it was three months ago but already I can see so many changes in Baby Awesome. She was so tiny here!
The Source4Women has a lot of fun different laughing images this month. Head on over there and check it out!
