Children can teach us a thing or two...  
Children laugh about 400 times a day, while adults laugh on average only 15 times a day.

Extensive reseach research has shown that laughter is infact the best medicine. More and more the medical field is confirming that laughter can aid in lowering blood pressure, boosting the immune system, and helps to reduce stress hormones.
