Happiness Blueprint 's curator insight, August 14, 2013 9:54 PM

Let's focus on the positive i say. I  am now able to laugh at the many embarrasing moments I had as left-handed kid and still have. Trying to cut a straight edge, or painfully keeping my elbow from jabbing into the person sitting to my right at a dinner table was always good for a laugh.  

The Advantages .....

Sports

Left-handed people have an advantage in many sports. Because right-handers make up the vast majority of the population, both lefties and righties are used to facing right-handed opponents. That means when a right-handed person faces a southpaw, he won't be used to his oponent's style. In sports like tennis, boxing, fencing and baseball, this can give a significant advantage to the lefty.

Intelligence

Left-handedness has been linked to enhanced mental abilities. A study conducted by Dr. Alan Searleman of St. Lawrence University found there are more left-handed geniuses than right-handed ones. Lefties also tend to be better at problem-solving skills and have larger vocabularies than average.

Paycheck

Left-handedness may lead to a better paycheck, at least if you are a man. According to The Washington Post, male lefties who have gone to college earn 13 percent more money than right-handed men. While the cause of this curious trend is not known, the wage difference is too significant to dismiss as anomalous.

Benefits of Laughter

Benefits of Laughter: Angels fly because they take themselves lightly. (G.K. Chesterton)

I love this , Angels fly because they take themselves lightly..

Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 9, 2013 7:56 PM

This article sumarizes "laughter therapy" research and outlines the many benfits of laughter. 

"William Fry, M.D., professor of psychiatry at Stanford University Medical School and expert on health and laughter, reports the average kindergarten student laughs 300 times a day. Yet, adults average just 17 laughs a day. Why the difference? Are we too uptight, too tense? Do we take life too seriously? Isn't it time we learned how to relax? We don't stop laughing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop laughing. So, if we want to fly like the angels and share in their happiness, we'll have to follow their example and take ourselves lightly."

Ha! Ha!
