humor is good for your immune system. Whether or not you get sick depends on your body’s ability to fight off infection and disease. In 1980 (prior to the discovery of the AIDS virus), the departing editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Franz Ingelfinger, estimated that 85% of all human illnesses are curable by the body’s own healing system. We now know that building a positive focus in your life plays an important role in supporting the body's ability to do this. Let's go and see good comedy....:)

Yes I think humor is the best medicine. Most times we forget to laugh in our stressful life. Most people are depressed and in sad mood including me and I think this is the cause of the most of the diseases in life. A person who can laugh on his defeat can never be conqured. Laughing and humor helps to keep the mind and body healthy. A sound mind always makes a sound body. A person who is healthy mentally will always be healthy body wise also. To decrease the stress of our life we had to laugh as far as I could. I tries to spend time I get watching cartoons like Tom and Jerry and TV shows like bewitched, full house, Mr. Bean, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, etc. This makes me forget about the stress of life and also work related to stress. These are the times I really enjoy my life. To enjoy life one should laugh as far as he/she could

yes, u are correct humour is the best medicine and laughter is helping to fight the deceases and streeful in life. do u know why and how? our body is reacting as per the commands of the mind and mind is reacting as per the commands of the intellectual and the intellectual is controlling the atma or soul ., but soul does not have any attachment or any wishes or any wants or desires. it is only covered by all those elements. so naturally if some incident is happening the other elements are totally responsible for the reaction of the incident. if that incident is good for u then u will feel happy and thing too that your action ended in good result . but in case of negative u will get depression and sorrow and frustrated. Laughter/humour plays a vital role in handling the situation. take every thing - every action in light sense (please note only sense should be light) matter and action should be serious to the extent required. so that the reaction generated by the result of the action will not affect u at all. Put it in other words, the fruits of the result done by the karma of your action will not bind on your neither body nor sould and u feel separated or free from any stresss. So be happy be humourous and laugh more
