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.

Loosen up and let yourself make mistakes and blunders. Learn to laugh at yourself and be less serious about life. You will notice that problems will not bother you as much as they used to when you were more serious.

Although laughter cannot solve all of life’s problems, at least things become more bearable for you. You should always take time to let out a chuckle no matter how stressful your day is turning out to be. That little attempt at happiness can do wonders for your mind-set and your emotional state. Learn to find joy in the simple things and life will seem more beautiful to you.
