Feel yourself depressed? Just smile - and the bad mood will go away, as it never happened! Do not hesitate to laugh - and you will be amazed at how your life and your health will change.
Set yourself a very serious goal - to laugh every day. Consider that laughter is a vitamin that should be taken regularly. Here's what we can offer:
- evening on the couch watching your favorite comedies;
- nice dinner with friends;
- going to the cinema or an amusement park with children (even one kind of happy children will make you laugh with pleasure);
- talking on the phone "about nothing" with a cheerful girlfriend;
- at least once every two weeks, forays into the shops in search of new funny books and magazines, so as to have a good time.
