Laughter The Best Lubricant

Laughter: It's the best lubricant for life.

Laughter: It's the best lubricant for life.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Laughing is the best lubricant – and that’s no joke.

In his book, It’s Better To Die Laughing Than To Be Dead Serious: How To Be The Life Of The Party, The Podium, And Everywhere In Between (Authorhouse), Marvin Maupin praises the benefits of having a good chuckle and teaches public speakers the tricks to have audiences cracking up.

Maupin, who’s also a retired minister and roastmaster, says that in times of “pressure and stress,” people are always looking for ways to “lighten up.”

For that, a good laugh serves as the best lube.

He says, “For thousands of years, humor and laughter have been praised as natural lubricants for getting through difficult times.”

Laughter lube also helps people live longer.

Maupin says a “lighthearted attitude and generous amounts of humor” keep people alive and kicking for much longer than their pouty counterparts.

As a result, public speakers should keep the laughs coming to really make an impression.
