YOU DON'T always HAVE TO ACT YOUR AGE

Did you know that kids laugh about 400 times a day!
The average “adult” only laughs about 25 times a day.
Now, that’s a SAD statistic for adults!

Even Dr.Andrew Weil ( www.DrWeil.com ) promotes laughter as,
“…one of the best ways to reduce stress and help cope with unpleasant situations, including health problems."
He suggests ways to inject a little laughter into our lives:

Rediscover the kid in you! Watch and play with youngsters. See what makes them laugh and try to bring some of that playfulness into your life.

Lighten up. Instead of bristling at life’s annoyances (bumper to bumper traffic, long lines, a jammed copier) try to view them as the day’s little bag of mischievous tricks and try laughing at the situation rather than scowling.

Try and see the humour in difficult situations. A positive, lighter mental attitude is not only healthier for the body, mind and spirit but it FEELS better too.

Just for today...
Imagine what you might do if you didn’t have to act your age.

After a "certain age"... acting "your age" is NO FUN at all!
