Solomon said “Laughter is the best medicine”

Whoever said laughing is the best medicine (From the Wisdom of Solomon…would have never known that but I looked it up for this post) was right. Laughter can brighten up your day even if it is just for a moment or many longer moments. I feel after I laugh even if it’s just for a little while provides some relief. I think it’s important to take a break from life to have a good laugh. Be it from a blog, youtube video, gif, meme, or whatever it is that puts a smile on your face.

Here are some of the physical and psychological benefits (ripped from https://www.ccpa-accp.ca/the-benefits-of-laughter/)
