You should find time to do THIS every day

You should find time in the day to laugh, what I and many others consider to be one of the most enjoyable reactions human beings are capable of.

There's nothing like cracking up -- when something is so funny that you can't help but cry, or drool. There have been several occasions where my wife, friends, and I are having dinner, and someone says something so funny that I all but choke on my food. And then the icing on the cake is when your laughter provokes the same reaction in those you're with. A second person starts laughing, then a third, and so on.

When I'm feeling angry or sad, there's nothing like a hilarious joke or incident to turn my frown upside down. It's just what the doctor ordered. A good laugh is so powerful that it can completely change one's mood in a matter of seconds.

If I had to make a list of the things I enjoy doing the most, laughing would be high up the list, along with sleeping and eating. Not only is it therapeutic, but it's fun to do whether you're alone or with friends and family.

Do you love to laugh?  Do you agree the best bouts of laughter are those resulting in tears?
