Ya, likely, I will not peddle old stuff if I tell that laughter - the first weapon against a stress. It prolongs and decorates human life. Still you do not trust? I will try it to prove to you.

A founder of a gelotologiya is the American psychologist Normann Kazins. He is still known as “the person who made laugh death“. The beginning at this history very sad. Kazins got sick: at it began collagenases - a serious disease of connecting fabrics and bones. Doctors were powerless, and the patient at the end of treatment lost ability to move. He asked to write out it home, and puzzled members of household with a request to begin for it display of comedy films. He watched one for another several days in a row, laughing loudly “to exhaustion“. He noticed that the terrible pains tormenting him ceased. In few weeks of the doctor found that the condition of the hopeless patient began to improve not on days, and on hours. Smekhoterapiya helped Normann to return in 3 years for work.

As “antidote“ he advises always to have at itself(himself) a clownish nose and sometimes to put on it: in front of the mirror or even in the presence of strangers. The author of a yumorobika believes that he will do this “exercise“ you much more happily, than regular visits to bar after work. (To it is more visible...)
