Laugh often! Rent a funny movie, indulge in your favorite television program, tell silly knock-knock jokes with your kids, but take time each day to laugh, even if only at the ridiculousness of your current demands.

At the very least, force a smile. Research shows that laughter is a great stress release that has positive impact on your immune system. and your attitude. Plus, it makes you more fun to be around.

So snort your little heart out. Your body and soul (and your family) will thank you.
