We all experience a moment where we laugh uncontrollably (sometimes without a reason) at inappropriate times. With this guide, you will learn how to better control it. Typically, people tend to laugh a lot when they are either nervous, uncomfortable or stressed.
Try to pinching your skin or biting your gums. This will distract yourself from what is going on. If a laugh slips out try to disguise it with a cough and cover your mouth.
Try to remember a sad or depressing moment. If you can not remember something then try to remember something that made you angry instead. This will calm down your laughing urges.This is also a good technique used to distract yourself from what is really going on.
Take deep,slow breaths from your nose. By taking deep and slow breaths you will calm down and be more relaxed. If the breathing technique does not work alone to distract you then try counting down from one hundred. This will relax you and keep your mind active doing something else.
Ignore what the person is saying. If it becomes too hard then try to zone out and think about something totally different. Try to still hold eye contact with the person so they think you are listening.
If all of the above fail then it is probably best just to escape the situation immediately. Try running to the bathroom or excusing yourself to get a drink of water. It is a lot better to just leave then stand there and laugh,possibly offending the person.
