Laughter is the best medicine

I think I’m perhaps one of the luckiest people in the world. I have a wonderful friend who makes me laugh every time I see her. We used to work together, and not a day would go by in which at some point we would have tears running down our cheeks, and curious faces would be popping their heads over the petitions to see what on earth was going on.

So when was the last time you had a really good laugh?

If you’re havig trouble remembering, close your eyes and think of something funny that happened to you recently or that you might have witnessed.

What happened? You might have even noticed some or even all of the following:

  • your face broke out into a gentle smile
  • your eyes crinkled up as they do when you smile
  • you may have had a warm feeling in your body
  • you may have taken a deep breath at the same time

Check now how you’re feeling … you may actualy be feeling happier!
