We live in a world where everyday we hear about shootings, terrorist attacks and other emotionally charged events. When was the last time you laughed so hard your face hurt? It has been awhile for me and with all the tragedies going on around us, I find myself not laughing or being cheerful at all. The trials of the world can easily distract us and keep us in a depression.
I enjoyed the various studies the author did on laughter. I found it interesting when he talked about his friend who was a dentist. He uses humor in his practice to make the person feel more at ease and to help the appointment go smoothly. What if we adopted that concept in our everyday lives? Some of us have life threatening illnesses and with a bit of humor it could help with the stress we are under. Some people use humor when they are nervous, or in a stressful situation. No matter when you use humor, it always makes others feel better . There are some funny moments in the book as he tells stories that relate to everyday life. I think it is important to be able to laugh at ourselves when we do silly things. The book is a great tool for bringing joy back into our lives . Thank you writing a book that shows us through humor , our situations can be bearable and " laughter really is the best medicine. "
"Humor has been said to be the most underrated elixir for good health. " Humor relieves tension and reduces anger and aggression. "
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review."
