Greetings fellow Hivers! It's been far too long since the Natural Medicine Community hosted a challenge, and considering the troubled times we are living in, we think humor and laughter are much needed natural medicines! We're getting together with @holos-lotus to have a much needed giggle, and we hope you'll join us!

A good sense of humor and a few laughs can often carry us through the hardest of times, and the health benefits of laughter have been scientifically proven in various studies around the globe.

This is why we've decided to create the...

#LaughterIsMedicine Challenge

But Isn't Cancel Culture Killing Comedy?

ย  ย  ย Unfortunately there have been some downsides to humanity's new state of "ultra-wokeness", and cancel culture is one of those downsides. With this in mind, it's probably best not to dive into overly controversial things when creating content for this challenge - and certainly please don't be unkind or poke fun of particular groups of people. The world is divided enough, don't you think? Let's keep it loving and light!

How Can I Participate?

ย  ย  ย In case you're having trouble drumming up ideas for a #LaughterIsMedicine post, here are some potential topics!

  • Tell us a funny true story from from your life, or even dive into fiction if you like.
  • Prepare a fake yoga lesson and invent your own poses, etc.
  • Tell us why a vegan diet is the best in the style of an American wrestling callout video.
  • If you're poetic, perhaps a humor-laced poem would do the trick.
  • Are you a musician? Well, it's obvious the possibilities are endless with that skillset.
  • Share with us the health benefits of laughter, citing any relevant scientific evidence or studies.
  • Even funny GIFs are welcome.....look at me in the above GIF manifesting a baguette with will-power.
  • Ever been on a tofu safari? Describe your experiences.

Laughter indeed is the best medicine to forget some worries and continue being positive in life by hiding those sad emotions from that laughter.

I'm thinking, this is a nice topic.

Are you talking about the downvotes these posts have received lately?

No, I didn't see them (I'm using ecency). I thought that you have a sense of humor so I have invited you. There is no rules for downvoting so any reason is good to do it. I can only guess that you have downvoted these posts for high pending payout reason. Am I right?

Surely, it is better to laugh than to sit and cry about problems.

Thanks for participating, no problem about the mistake, you've shared the link with us, so I have access to the post. However, I would caution against doubleposting, as it can sometimes land you in trouble because many see it as claiming rewards for the same content twice. It would've been better to have just crossposted your original entry.

Do take some time to explore Hive and learn the ins and outs, it will make your journey a bit easier. Thanks for participating, I'm gonna go have a look now.

If I made a mistake it was accidentally, and I still don't understand the mistake. But I will try to understand the rules for the next post.

@naturalmedicine truly I need to explain myself, I'm new to Hive community, and after reading again the requirements for this contest, I didn't know what's cros-posting,was working on this project all through the night. I decided to check others that participated how they tag @naturalmedicine on their beginning page but mine was different, then I realized where the mistake was. Please pardon me, I had to write it again and do the right way to post on the page. I hope I'll be selected and thanks for this opportunity.

The wound seems real because it's real my dear, but I rather not dwell on it, instead I have fun with it. Thanks for the comment.

Uhm, I think I forgot to share my post with my participation and entry for this contest in the comments section since 3 days ago. };)

Ok, here it is: https://hive.blog/hive-120078/@por500bolos/heey-just-a-quick-short-post-to-report-some-weird-and-fancy-last-hot-news

Now, let's see if I cheer up myself enough to make also a new bilingual one to also participate in the contest of @holos-lotus to see if they can handle my extravagant sense of humor in Spanish. Hahahaha
