Laughter is the Best Medicine

Is laughing good for you? This is a question you need to ask yourself now more than ever. And the answer is already known to all. No medicine can cure an ailing heart more than a warm smile. No doubt, the word “smile” is considered the most pleasing five-letter word. It increases your face value and keeps you alive at heart. It is said that death kills you once, but anxiety kills you at every moment. And laughter is the best medicine for the anxiety, fear, and stress caused by the never-ending problems of this world. Smiling creates an aura of positivity around you that eventually leads to real happiness.

creator of the smiley face. The aim of this day is nothing but to spread smiles through certain acts of kindness. There is no limit to the acts of positivity and compassion. It can be as small as buying a kid his/her favorite chocolate, a balloon, or candy. This day allows you to pause your otherwise busy life and do something to spread positivity and happiness. Some World Smile Day activities that are guaranteed to make you smile are listed below:

  • Since self-care comes first, you can buy yourself a gift. It could be an expensive chocolate bar you have been craving for weeks or a skincare package that you so wanted to try.
  • Spend a day with your parents and make memories.
  • Make your roommate or friend their favorite meal.
  • Give kids a smile day. Kids have very low standards for smiling, so it doesn’t take much to make them smile. Also, a smile day for kids will ultimately turn into a smile day for you.
  • Pay a dental care visit to your dentist and enhance the experience of the Smile Day. People love a clean teeth smile.
  • Distribute food to the poor. It is therapeutic and will earn you lots of blessings.
  • Attend a smile day event with your friends or family.
  • Visit an orphanage and spend time with the kids there. You can even take small presents for them.
  • Sponsor a child’s education or treatment.
  • Buy something for your maid or driver or your kids’ caretaker.
  • Lend an ear to someone you know is suffering from mental health issues.
