Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Learning anything, including humor, require a little bit of discipline. Dedicate same time to research and learn new jokes.
✓ Trigger your mind. Start a joke notebook and keep it visible so you wouldn’t forget about it.
✓ Let the app help. You can use the reminder to ring when it’s time to research your new jokes.
✓ Celebrate small victories. Every time you perform this habit, congratulate yourself! Say “I’m awesome” or “I’m so cool” out loud and with a smile on your face.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Have your process. Once you sit down for it, Google some jokes that make you laugh. If they do seem funny to you, they’re bound to make someone else laugh as well. Either memorize the joke then and there, or write it down for later.
✓ Feel the situation. Some jokes may be more appropriate than others depending on the topic at hand. Make sure you don’t sound awkward if the joke is unrelated to the conversation.
✓ Dark humor. If you personally find dark humor funny, make sure you’re not in the minority among the people you’re with. Try to feel the people and situation around you to chance your jokes appropriately.
