I don't smoke because it causes cancer and that will kill me. I don't drink because it causes liver problems and car accidents and those will kill me. I don't drive without my seatbelt because that might kill me. When I crave a cookie or a shake, I tell myself that I "can't eat that because it will kill me." True or not, that one little phrase gives me just enough pause to stop, think and make a more healthy decision.
Laughing is one of the best ways to relieve stress, change a mood, or an attitude. It jolts your thoughts into a positive thinking cycle. Simply watching or listening to someone laugh can trigger feel good endorphins to be released in the brain which helps reduce mental & physiological symptoms of stress. It's also contagious.
