We should all remember this more often. Not just when with friends and family, but also when a funny thought comes into your head maybe at the supermarket or when you step onto an elevator. If you catch an eye and have a funny thought, share it – you may make someone’s day!
“Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.” Read the article of Melinda Smith, M.A. and Jeanne Segal, Ph.D. here at helpguide.org http://www.helpguide.org/articles/emotional-health/laughter-is-the-best-medicine.htm
