The world needs more simchah. We can become more joyous — and we must. Still, is it possible? We're barely able to keep our heads above water! Can we (not only maintain, but) actually increase our simchah amidst life's swirling challenges?
The answer is a resounding "Yes!" We can become happier by inviting humor — and its co-conspirator, laughter — into our lives! Laughter and humor are the twin engines that keep joy aloft.
Humor and laughter work. Let's laugh together and learn to make our lives, and the world, more joyous.
