This article on "laughter, the best medicine" is from the "Lessons from a Baby" series of motivation articles.

There are no words to describe the joy we felt as parents when we first heard the laugh of our first-born son, Shiza. It was as though we had heard someone laugh for the first time. It took on a new meaning.

Like little children we also learnt to laugh. We laughed just because he had laughed. There was nothing funny, really, but we were all laughing. How silly! How liberating!

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones."

Proverbs 17:22, The Bible.

The best advice I can give you:

Laugh often.
Laugh everyday.
Laugh with all you have.
Laugh with those you love.
