If you can love and if you can laugh, totally wholheartedly, your life will beco me such bliss and a benediction, not only to yourself but to everyone else. You wi ll be a blessing to the world ( Osho ). The ability to infuse humour into every day life is invaluable for health and happiness. Research evidence, supports what folk w isdom has long held: chuckling at situations and the self is healthy (Dixon 1980; Long , 1987; Martin & Lefcourt , 1983, Nezu, Nezu & Blissett 1988). Humour at the expense of others is something else altogether of course (Blumenfeld & Alpern , 1986). But mirthful laughter, funniness and joking in a playful spirit can enhance mental and physical well being and sometimes can earn heal (Causins, 1981, Graham, 1990; Ornstein & Sobel 1989; Sobel & Ornstein 1996, )Willinghom Jones, 1989.Studies suggest that humo ur may promote health partly through bolstering the immune system (Berk , 1989, Dillon, Minchoff, & Baker, 1985)
