Laughter Is Great Medicine
As adults have we become too serious and abandoned laughter? At a certain age we stop “playing”, and apparently we stop laughing as well. We don’t laugh as much as we did when we were younger or as much as we need to as adults. Studies have shown that children laugh 400 times a day up to age four, and adults… just 15 times a day. What’s the problem – is there just not that much to laugh at when we’re older? We’ve all heard the cliché “Laughter is the best medicine”. Well, it’s true. Laughter helps us to maintain some balance in our lives. It heals, relieves stress & anxiety, and it just makes you feel good. Need some help? Buy a book of jokes, listen to your favorite comedian, or watch a funny movie. Don’t take life so seriously. Live and laugh.
“The most thoroughly wasted of all days is that on which one has not laughed.” – Chamfort
