We are born with the ability to laugh, and laughter acts as a universal language across all cultures. Laughter is good for you, too. It may reduce stress, boost your immune function, while also inducing optimistic feelings, offering pain relief, protecting the heart, and relaxing your body. One of the things we can do to enjoy life more is to laugh. Since laughter has demonstrated a wealth of quality-of-life benefits, we encourage you to add joy and zest this week to strengthen relationships, enhance teamwork, promote bonding and help defuse conflict. Read the funny papers, seek out funny people, goof around with children, do something silly, play with a pet, go to a comedy club or watch a TV comedy or movie.
