Learning to laugh at yourself and honing your sense of humour can make your entire life more joyful. If you know how to make it so, life can be enjoyable and amusing.

You must have a sense of humour to be truly happy. For some of us, this comes effortlessly, while for others, it may take some effort to unlock.

It's a terrific way to change a negative situation into a positive one, and people enjoy being around individuals who can make them laugh. Being amusing can benefit you in almost every facet of your life.

Having a strong sense of humour will always add to your arsenal when socially dealing with someone, from creating relationships with your friends to getting your crush to like you. We don't all start off as the class clown or the joker, but here are some suggestions to help you improve your sense of humour:

1. Watch More Stand Up & Comedies: This is as straightforward as it gets. Watch more comedies to improve your sense of humour. When you immerse yourself in a subject, you learn more effectively (such as a language). Similarly, by immersing yourself in humour, you can improve your sense of humour. Keep an eye out for stand-up comedians. Listen to entertaining podcasts. Read comedic novels. Examine persons who are amusing, such as Kevin Hart. If you're unsure where to begin, look for something that appeals to you or begin with something popular. You'll be rolling out of your seat in no time if you're watching stand-up and following the jokes. By screening out jokes, pickup lines, and other analogies that make others laugh, the law of attraction will help you improve your sense of humour.

2. Try To See The Funny Side To Almost Everything: If you really want to improve your sense of humour, try making a joke out of something mundane. Every single incident and circumstance you come across has a hidden humour. Seeing things from a new angle is a vital life skill that will come in helpful when learning to be a jokester. If I become really concerned about a situation, I finally burst out laughing and begin making light of it. I know what you're thinking... it's a little strange. This instantly changes my mood and influences everyone around me to do the same.

3. Learn Some Very Simple Jokes: You don't have to be imaginative at first. Simply go out and conduct some research. Jokes, humour, puns, humorous photos, stand-up comedy, and other forms of entertainment can all be found on the internet. Try searching for things you enjoy and using the words "funny," "joke," or "comedy" at the end of your search. There are millions of things that will make you chuckle.

4. Hang Out & Observe Other Funny People: We've all got friends who we find amusing. Spend some time with them to figure out what they're doing to be hilarious and how they're doing it. Being around other amusing people will undoubtedly rub off on you.

Humornama claims that being around other comedians and interestingly children are one of the finest ways to improve sense of humour.

Surrounding yourself with hilarious individuals is a great approach to develop your sense of humour. Keep an open mind and don't be scared to speak up. Every single chuckle counts. In fact, just a few real laughs a day can help you live longer, increase the quality of your life, and broaden your horizons.

5. Don’t Give Up: On a regular basis, all comics will be criticised. The thing to remember about jokes and your sense of humour is that not everyone will get it. Indeed, there will almost certainly come a point where you finish a joke and hear crickets chirping. Don't give up in these situations; just remember that everyone goes through them. You may need to sneak away from the group or party for a few seconds to catch your breath. On the other hand, comedy may lead to embarrassment, and if you're the brunt of a joke, it can be difficult to laugh it off.

6. Try Not To Offend: Knowing who you're talking to is crucial to making them laugh. You can go too far with your humour and offend or anger an audience that isn't interested in hearing it. Try to read other people's reactions to your humour and make an assessment. If people are laughing so hard that they are falling out of their seats, you can probably keep making jokes. If they have been silent for a long time or appear offended, though, it is probably best to turn to another topic, one that you believe will be more relevant to them.

7. Stay Positive: This is possibly the most crucial suggestion on my list. Who laughs at a joke told by a person who is frowning? There aren't many. Nobody will laugh at your jokes if you are giving off negative vibes. You won't even find them amusing. You must laugh more to truly acquire a sense of comedy.

It's wonderful to see a comedy and be around other people, but how can you really know what's amusing if you don't follow the humour? When you're pleased and smiling, you'll notice that comedy comes freely to you. You can feel jokes forming in your stomach, and then you let them out. A decent sense of humour is suffocated by nervousness and hesitancy.
