“Laughter is the best medicine” - I love this quote very much.
Laughter is free-of-charge. Besides, laughter is a painless
method to ease your stress, mind and body (I hate suffering from
Wondering why after a round of laughter,
your mood improved? When you laugh (have to be a genuine
laughter), your brain secretes endorphins. The chemicals (or
