Laughter is indeed the best medicine. How many times has your spirit been lifted when someone told you a funny or heartwarming story? What about when a grand child comes to visit and their mere presence lights up your world? Why are we drawn to that optimistic person that livens up the party with great jokes and funny anecdotes? These stories, jokes and people make us feel better. They’re good medicine!
Even when someone is already feeling “pretty good”, laughter still makes them feel better! So smile, be kind, offer words of encouragement, you may never know who needs a healthy dose of the best medicine. And this medicine has no harmful side-effects.
The bible says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Proverbs 17:22
