There is no better medicine than to take the good things you have in your life and put it into good use for yourself. It has worked wonders for me throughout the years and if everyone gives it a chance, I think the world would be a better place to live in; it would have better surroundings, better people and the result would be a better life. Don’t waste time being sad over something because as the quote goes, “everything happens for a reason.” I believe that laughter is the best medicine for pain, heartbreaks, bad days, and fights to the point of even losing somebody. Laughter can always be counted on to put people in a better mood because it makes you forget of all the bad situations happening in your life, and focuses on all the good memories; whether those memories is in the past or the present.
Seeing the difference in your mood when you’re in a room with lifeless, boring people and being in a room with funny energetic kids is amazing. When I had to wait at my doctor’s office, not a smile could be seen; no laughter could be heard! There were about ten kids and adults sitting there silently waiting for their turn to arrive. I was just sitting, wondering when this was going to be done. Once stepping into a hair salon and seeing friendly people in a fun surrounding can make you feel more like home and brighten your day. My hair salon is a place where everyone knows each other, therefore, we are able to have fun, make jokes and talk comfortably. This makes your mood be more upbeat because you feel a sense of belonging.
Furthermore, laughter is quite important, it is associated with good health and wellbeing, and it is truly the best medicine and its benefits are far-ranging....
The next day, I set up an iPod dock and played music, not only in the willfully delusional belief that music would be good for a painful, recovering brain but also to counter the soul-crushing hospital noise: the beeping of monitors, the wheezing of respirators, the indifferent chatter of nurses in the hallway, the alarm that went off whenever a patient’s condition abruptly worsened.
