Laughter is the best medicine you can take. The more you laugh the better you feel and the better those around you feel. Laughter is contagious. Start an epidemic. Don’t take life or yourself so seriously. Life is too short, too dear to be so intense every minute of every day. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Watch funny movies. Read funny stories. Share a laugh with friends. Lighten up. There are very few situations that laughter will not make better. Don’t take offense when none was intended. Develop a tougher skin.
