5 Slightly Weird Yet Highly Effective Ways To Get Happy Quickly.by Carly Jacobs
Sing A Duet With Yourself in The Shower
I quite like I Finally Found Someone with Bryan Adams and Barbra Streisand, The Elephant Love Medley from Moulin Rouge and obviously the Confrontation from Les Mis with Valjean and Javert. Take it really seriously. It won’t work if you go all pansy on it. Feel the music my friend. Feel the music.
Play A Hand Clapping Game Like You Did In Primary School
Down by the banks of the hanky panky,
Where the bullfrogs jump from bank to banky,
With a hip and a hop and belly flop,
Leaps off a lily pad and goes KER-PLOP!
Guaranteed super happiness. If you’re at work, find someone who knows the rhyme of your choice and smash it out. It will make you feel magical.
Wear Novelty Hulk Hands
… and make sure you get a spare pair for a friend. Pop a bike helmet on your noggins. Belt the crap out of each other. A work colleague of mine and I did this at a special needs school I taught at a few years ago (after the students had gone home of course) and I laughed so hard I thought I was going to stop living. Highly recommended. Although for obvious reasons buy the foam Hulk hands… not the plastic ones.
Have A Conversation With A Friend Without Letting Your Own Lips Touch
Extra points if you do it in some kind of ‘shore’ accent. Like Jersey or Geordie.
