So, never miss a chance to laugh, for it is a powerful way of maintaining your equanimity and easing situations
"Laughing does not necessarily mean being carefree, frivolous and irresponsible. Laughing can actually have a more beneficial effect on the mind than wearing a serious, reflective expression, which many think makes them look wise. This is because laughter has a lively energy that nourishes the brain.
Laughing also helps you to get back on your feet, to bounce back. It’s true that everyone’s life has events that are no laughing matter to begin with, and it is normal to be worried and upset about them initially, but if you get used to seeing the funny side of certain situations it makes it easier for you not to become overwhelmed. So, never miss a chance to laugh, for it is a powerful way of maintaining your equanimity and easing situations. Just because you have reasons for being upset, sad and discouraged does not mean you should be willing to remain in that state. "
