“A cheerful heart is good medicine.”
Laugh. Give yourself permission. Make other people laugh – it keeps your mind sharp, and will also make you laugh too.
Cognitive neuroscientist Sophie Scott says, “You are 30 times more likely to laugh when you are with other people. You laugh to show people you understand them; you agree with them; and you like them. Laughter is contagious. And you are more likely to catch laughter off of someone else if you know them.”
