A Laugh a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Brenda Knight (author of Random Acts of Kindness) reminds us that laughter and good humor is good for the soul.

    As the legendary Charlie Chaplin said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” Laughter and good humor are infectious. Sharing a funny story or memory with others helps increase happiness and intimacy between friends, acquaintances, and loved ones. According to help guide.org, laughter triggers happiness and can strengthen the immune system, boost energy, relieve physical and emotional pain, and battle the effects of stress. Today is a great day! Let yourself enjoy it.
