I Think Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39,046 People

    I have always had a certain belief

    since I was a kid that laughter is the music of the soul. I have always tried my best to make people laugh. Not because I wanted them to feel good. I just wanted to hear the music.

    I heard there was some studies
