Laughter is the Best Medicine!

By FPL_Sunita

National Humor Month starts April 1 and now is the perfect time to add some humor to your day. Larry Wilde created National Humor Month in 1976 with the intention of showing people how humor is a valuable tool to improve our way of life. Laughing not only makes us feel good and acts as a painkiller to ease our pain, but it can also strengthen your immune system, increase your energy, and help protect you from the harmful effects of stress.

An interesting study found that the average person laughs seven times every ten minutes of conversation. Adding more humor to your life can be as simple as reading or watching a funny movie or hanging out with funny people or even laughing at yourself.

What is the funniest book you have ever read? Here are our picks:
