    Laughter is the best medicine bcause a positive attitude is the best way to keep a person healthy, or so the idea goes.

    Yes, indeed : it's been proven by scientists that one minute of laughter is the equivalent of half an hour of relaxation.
    Laughing is cheap and easily available, it can be a very efficient substitute to gurus, analysts and medication.

    Read this for instance, and tell me if you don't feel better after :

    Some associations even organise laughing week-ends and the 4th International Laughter Gathering will take place in Paris this year :
