5 Lessons We Can Learn From Memes

Memes have become an important and inextricable part of the internet experience. 

They are funny, relatable and relevant. You can find a meme for almost any situation in your life. They are compact, easy to understand and deliver an idea pretty quickly. 

Some memes are highly amusing, others not so much, but overall, most of the memes you can find on the internet are extremely popular, well-liked and funny. 

Memes are a great way to communicate and express ourselves with the help of humor. Although most memes are purely made for entertainment purposes, there are also some valuable lessons we can learn from them. 

Here is a list of 5 such lessons we can learn from memes:

1. Life is as fun as you make it. 

With random pictures and a few sentences, memes make everything hilarious. The pictures otherwise don't mean anything, but when they get turned into memes with funny comments, it becomes the perfect recipe for a quick laugh.

In the same way, you can make your life as exciting and fun as you want. Understandably, it is very easy to get overwhelmed with the stress and unpleasant situations in life. Or it could be that you are so worried about achieving the end goals that you forget to take a break in the process. 

However, it is very important that you maintain a balance and bring more laughter and fun in your life. 

Your happiness depends on you. You have the power to make your life as interesting and fun as you want. Do something spontaneous every now and then, let go of your fear and inhibitions. Make fun a priority.

2. It only takes a few seconds to find happiness and bring laughter. 

Memes are great for a quick break from a busy day. One glimpse of a meme can instantly make you laugh and brighten your mood. Even if only for a few seconds, you get to forget about your worries and enjoy a light moment. 

Likewise, to be happy, you must keep your mind open to finding happiness around you and celebrate the little things. 

You miss out a lot by being too serious and getting yourself worked up over petty things. Instead, remind yourself to not take everything so seriously and loosen up a bit. 

Try to find and enjoy as many light-hearted moments you can find in your life. Take pleasure in little things and laugh as much as you can. Finding happiness is easier than you think.

3. It feels good to preserve and cherish the pleasant moments. 

We all like saving memes to our phones to view them later and share them with our friends. 
Just like saving those memes bring you so much joy, savoring the pleasant moments in your life allows you to appreciate your life even more and become happier. 

Taking pictures, videos and journaling are great methods for saving those invaluable happy moments of your life.

However, undoubtedly, the best way of preserving the happy moments is being mindful and living fully in those moments. The memories you save by being mindful are more vivid and stimulating than otherwise. 

4. Sharing happiness with others makes us happier. 

One of the reasons for the popularity of memes is their shareability factor. Whenever we come across a witty and funny meme, we immediately think of sharing it with our friends, family, and even strangers on social media. Viewing those memes makes us happy, but sharing them with others makes us even happier.  

Similarly, sharing your happiness with the people around you increases your happiness and allows you to stay more positive. 

Sharing your happiness with other people allows you to celebrate the cause of your happiness in an even better way. The joy you experience from spreading happiness is much more than keeping to yourself.

5. We all are more alike than we think. 

What makes memes so successful is the fact that they are so damn relatable. Through memes, you can easily connect with the people on the internet. 

Memes make you feel good because they assure you that there are other people out there who also go through the same things as you. They let you know that even others have those wacky and weird thoughts that you have.

The realization that we are more alike than different allows us to understand and relate to other people easily. It makes us more comfortable in opening up to others and sharing our emotions with them. 

As a result, we become more empathetic and build better relationships.

Turns out memes can do much more than just make us chuckle.
