Under the cap of a Snapple Green Tea that I had today my fun fact was:

Six-year-olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day.

I couldn’t help think about how our joy is stolen.  What takes our laughs?  Are our lives more boring or are we just taking ourselves too seriously?  Why do we allow the sun to set on our laughter?

Perhaps we need to reclaim the childlike joy we encounter in the simplest things in life. Take joy in slowing down and playing outside, being silly just for the sake of being silly.  Laugh out loud rather than holding it in.

I just thought this “Snapple Real Fact” was a bit depressing.
