Laughter is the perfect medicine for someone who’s down in the dumps and needs a boost. It’s also the daily preventative medicine that helps to keep happy people happy.
Proverbs 15:13 says, “A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance.” And that’s true because people who are happy-going always seem to look free, almost as if they don’t even have problems.
Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart does good like medicine.” When you’re happy inside, you’re not burdened with stress and your thoughts are a lot clearer.
People who are able to laugh freely are able to use that energy and throw off the heavy burdens that are weighing them down. Laughter doesn’t change the situation you’re facing, but it certainly changes your attitude and allows you to deal with it easier.
