LAUGHTER AND SMILES CAN CURE AND UNITE PEOPLE

Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. In addition to the domino effect of joy and amusement, laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.

Laughter is strong medicine for mind and body

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

The above photo is Doctor Patch Adams who introduced humor to hospital care in an era when treating patients in pain was not considered a humorous process. If you have not seen this beautiful movie called "Patch Adams", you really need to see it. It stars Robin Williams. What better actor could they find for such a role!

I will never forget the rounds I made in hospitals, especially in the children ward when I walked in with a smile and said a joke or two. Regardless of age, race, creed, those beautiful humans who were in pain, for a moment seemed to forget what was ailing them and returned the smile.
