The most wasted ofall days is one without laughter.

e.e. cummings 

Day 3 - Thankful for laughter 

There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.

  Charles Dickens

I’m one who believes laughter is the best medicine.  It cures a lot of ills.  I try to always laugh every day even if it is at myself.  Laughter is strong medicine.  It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens you immune system, boosts good health  diminishes pain and protects you from the effects of stress.

Go ahead and give it a try.  Turn the corners of your moth up into a smile and then laugh, even if it feels forced and you will feel better.  It’s the truth. 

I always feel better when I’m around the grandchildren because they laugh a lot.  Matter of fact any time spent with my family is always full of laughter. They know how to have fun and enjoy themselves.  It’s one of the reasons I miss them so much.  When they were all still home, the house was always full of it.  If one couldn’t think of something to laugh about,  one of the others could.

Some doctors and nurses and therapists have a perscription for helping all of us get through these seemingly never ending aays of pandemic: Try a little laughter.

Humor is not just a distraction from the grim reality of the crisis, it’s a winning strategy to say healthy in the face of it. Having a good sense of humor is an excellent way to release the stress and anxiety and bring back a sense of normalcy during these turbulent times. So even though this seems to be a little silly.  Lsugh and stay healthier.!

Life is worth living as long as there’s a laugh in it.

Lucy Maud Montgomery

You sound a lot like me. I laugh at myself many times when I am by myself. I also notice the grands and greatgrands LAUGH a lot and that is contageous. I really enjoyed the graphics, especially #2. Good stuff.
Have a great day

I agree, particularly about it being the 'best medicine.' Wouldn't it be great if the only television available in hospitals would be the Comedy Channel?
