Did you know - Laughter is actually one of the best
forms of stress management there is.
Even just smiling is good, particularly
where anxiety is concerned.
Smiling increases the facial blood flow which in turn warms the brain and starts to
stimulate the endorphin process. Laughter not only helps release areas of stored tension
in the body, but actively massages the internal organs. It also exercises the stomach and
diaphragm thus affecting the respiratory system which is closely connected with the
There is a man in the USA who has written a whole book about his experiences in this
respect. He was diagnosed terminally ill with cancer, but laughed himself back to health

ranking martial artist) receives a birthday present one year. He is a keen fisherman so

to go fishing down at the river by the local pub.
He sets his
equipment up and settles down for a good days fishing.
he also meets up with an acquaintance, and by lunchtime they were feeling a little thirsty
and decided to have a pint and some pub-grub.
But what to

know" he thought, I'll leave it high up in the tree where it is difficult to reach.
At least that will keep any of those pesky local kids getting at it so easily.
He also wrote
a note for any one who might feel tempted and attached it clearly on the equipment where
anyone could read it -
'I'm a black
belt in karate, kung fu, aikido and judo
and I'll be back in five minutes. Don't touch or else!'
He went off
to the pub feeling quite sure of himself and confident that his equipment would be safe
now, no one would dare!
When he came
back, to his dismay his equipment had disappeared and another note was attached to where
it had been.
'Well I'm an Olympic runner, but I won't be back at all!'
Did you know - Most jokes actually depend on a mind skill and
communication technique called 'Reframing' to effect their punch line.
with graphics they often call it a 'Paradigm Shift', a big buzz word
in business and communication skill circles these days.
Yet all it
really means is to look at something from a different side of the coin or in a different
light. Failure to do this probably results in more personal conflicts and confrontations
than anything else.
Funny how we
so often find it so difficult to do!

The Heart of
This fellow who had spent his whole life in
the desert comes to visit a friend.
He'd never seen a train or the tracks they
While standing in the middle of the
railroad tracks one day, he hears this whistle --
Whooee da Whoee! -- but doesn't know what it is.
Predictably, he's hit but, only a glancing
blow and is thrown, to the side of the tracks, with
some minor internal injuries, a few broken bones,
and some bruises.
After weeks in the hospital recovering,
he's at his friend's house attending a party, one
evening. While in the kitchen, he suddenly hears the
tea kettle whistling.
He grabs a baseball bat from the nearby
closet and proceeds to batter and bash the tea kettle into an
unrecognizable lump of metal.
His friend, hearing the ruckus, rushes
into the kitchen, sees what's happened and asks the man from
the desert, "Why'd you ruin my good tea kettle?"
The desert man replies,
"Man, you gotta kill these things
when they're small!"

"A double whisky and coke, bitch, and make it quick, I'm thirsty!"
demands the parrot.
The stewardess returns a few minutes later with the parrot's
drink, which he snatches without a word.
"Excuse me," says the
man, "but I ordered a coffee".
"Did you, sir?
I'm sorry, I'll get you one straight away".
By which time the parrot has
finished his drink.

"Yeah, I want another double

Again the stewardess returns with
the parrot's drink and without the coffee.
Naturally the man thinks the only
way he is going to get any service is to adopt the attitude of
his fellow passenger.
