Humor

		

People have long known that humor is powerful and have made claims for laughter as a cure-all.

Research has shown that, while there is little evidence that it cures disease, there is plenty of evidence that it dispels negative emotions, increases well-being, enhances interpersonal relationships, and reduces pain. Humor does indeed seem to be one of the most powerful positive emotions.
