When Did You Last Make Some Noise?

Posted By: Randy GageSeptember 30, 2009

Last post we talked about how important silence can be for your self development.  But what about noise?

It can be cool sometimes, if you’re the one making it.  When is the last time you really laughed out loud?  When is the last time you shrieked with delight?  Shouted with joy?

We’re trained to always keep our composure.  Act adult, proper, and refined.  But now and then, it’s good to bust loose and act like a kid again.  Why not try it today?

  1. If there is ever a day that my wife and I don't find something to laugh about uproariously it will probably be the end of the world!

    Even then we would laugh because we wouldn't be missing anything! We'd all be going together.

    Laughter is DEFINITELY the BEST medicine and VERY HEALTHY.

  2. LOL!!! There isn't a day that we don't get a little nutty around our house. It is really easy to do when you have a 2 yrs old. Anything that we do is hilarious to her, but my 13 yr old probably wouldn't agree. 😉

  3. last time I shouted with joy was last Saturday, after about 110km of cycling and I had arrived above the hill and saw the English Channel ! there were only another 10k to the finish line !
    I did pay attention though that there was nobody around ! so you see the "act proper and refined" is also a european up-bringing thing...
    but ask Bernadette how often she laughs out loud?
    she does it for both of us!...

  4. So whatever happened to Primal Scream therapy? I guess it's out of vogue but it was a healthy way to blow off some steam.
    Last September my brother and I were at Citizen's Bank Park with 43,498 of our closest friends when the Phillies won their
    second straight N.L. East title and we were all screaming only to
    be outdone by the cheers when the Phils won the World Series.
    Our magic number is 1 (one) so stay tuned. If you hear me yelling tonight you'll know that Philadelphia has won their third straight N.L. East Penant!

  5. Randy!!

    LOUD AND PROUD!

    Thanks for all your wonderful guidance:)

    You must be stalker! LOL
    I think I attract your message of the day. It was a Bulls Eye!!!!

    Today, was really an intense day. And yes, laughter is the music of the soul.

    ThX for the reminder

  7. Randy,
    Your so right. I was raised in a household that was VERY controlled. Children were "seen and not heard". You didn't have an opinion or show emotion out loud. We were ever so careful about what others thought of us. It was killing me literally! I had stomach problems and developed a serious heart cond. which was supposed to have killed me 6 yrs. ago! My husband, some time back, mentioned the fact that I never laughed anymore. I have concentrated on cleansing all that stuffed emotion, dealing immediately with things as they come along and the result is amazing! I will spontaneously laugh out loud, to the point of tears, at silly things. What a great feeling! I shout and "whoo hooo! wildly at meetings/conferences (when appropriate 🙂 ) without worrying about others. The result? I'm losing weight and my health is excellent. I'm really enjoying my life for the first time. Thanks for the reminder.

  8. Hello Randy,

    Great advice! As it is almost bedtime here, in Quebec, I commit to do the exercise tomorrow - more precisely during my monthly social meeting with collegues and friends.

    In success,
    Chantal

  9. I definitely need to exercise my throat chakra more. As a solopreneur there are often hours on end when I don't speak at all, don't think this is good for me. Maybe I should start singing more too? Good topic.

  10. I recently got told off for laughing too loudly whilst having lunch in a pub with a friend because the penioners in the next booth didn't like it! So very funny!!!
