When life’s troubles get the better of you, there are some things you can do to cope. You can talk to a therapist and take medication. You can turn to drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes to help you escape. Or you can cope with your stress in a different manner: with laughter. Yes, I believe that laughter is the best medicine. And we are quite lucky that it is free and highly accessible to everyone. Here are some ideas to get you laughing.
1. Comedy shows

For a quick laughter, watch your favorite comedy shows and movies on TV or DVD. You can also check out different stand up comedies on video. Watch the shows with a special someone or with friends and family.
2. Comedy clubs

If you want a laugh while out in town, then you and your friends can go to a local comedy club. Find one with the kind of humor you enjoy. The point of going to a comedy club is to laugh the night away and not to end up being pissed off or offended.
3. Comics and Books
