Laughter Is Healthy
Why do we take ourselves so seriously? Are we really that important?
How did we get here, as adults, only laughing an average of 15 times a day. Children laugh about 400 times a day.
What do they know that we have forgotten? What are the economic costs associated with not laughing?
There are so many benefits to laughter.
