Cracking a joke or two, making funny faces, sharing mirthful videos, passing on jokes through email etc are just some of the things you can do on July 1.

We need to learn to laugh at life and ourselves a bit more.
They say laughter is contagious. The more you laugh, better are the chances of you contributing a bit to make world a better place. We all have problems and tension but a bit of laughter and sharing some light moments can greatly reduce our pain. Medical science proved that laughing helps you to fight off illnesses by boosting your immune system. Laughter can relieve stress, strengthen your immune system and diminish pain. It can also make you feel less lonely and more positive about yourself. And some even believe laughing actually burns calories! Plus, it’s totally free and anyone can do it!
