Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Laughter is necessary to be happy, yet we don´t consider it so important for health.
    Things that make me laught me are the jokes we tell friends when we are together and particularly American movies with Spanish and funny situations.
    But there is another thing that makes me laugh a lot it is my grandmother when I realized life situations and how they lived.
    Finally, laughter is necessary for life not just studying, doing homework or sleep, is necessary for us to feel happy with friends and family and especially for us to be healthier.

  2. Laughter is one of the best things of this life. It makes you unwind , enjoy and that life is ,to be happy and enjoy. I like to be with people who make me laugh, funny people make you happy, and I like the way I am a funny person, because when someone is comnigo momentarily being happy and that makes me feel proud.

    For me a relationship without laughter is not a relationship because you're with someone because you love it as it is but also for the time you spend with it and if there isn't joy and laughter at this time is not good value.

    You must make the joy is a partner in our life and try never her away from us because after all be happy is one of our goals in life.

    Besides laughter serves as a healthy method for our life, laugh at least 15 minutes a day lengthens our life a few years. I laughed so hard I think I am almost immortal hahaha.In any case,be happy, laugh and make all your relationships have a few laughs, and that you will be helping that person to live longer and be a little happier.


  3. Laughter is one of the best things in life. Throughout the day we have many habits, such as brushing teeth, showering, washing our face, throwing cream, combing our hair, having breakfast, because smiling should be one of those habits because it is very healthy.

    It is possible that the day to day forces us to be victims of stress and many times we live in the company of anger as well. But, with this we achieve nothing more than to finish little by little with our daily energy and our measure of optimism. In those moments of stress is where we should stop for a moment, and ask ourselves if our problems really matter.

    Although you may not believe it, the simple act of laughing helps us to fight situations that affect us on a daily basis. Even if it's a contagious laugh that you provoke everyone at work or in high school, or laugh with you with no idea why, be it a smile while you walk down the street and get a couple of smiles back, from people who probably you will never see again in your life. This also allows us to show others that we can smile and be thankful, because it is important and because we can help and think about others by doing so.
    On the other hand, smiling has also become an ideal way to meet people and to improve interpersonal relationships. In particular, it is the image that we reflect towards others, everything can start with a smile.

    William Shakespeare said "It is easier to get what you want with a smile than with the tip of the sword"

  4. Laughter is a way of expressing happiness.
    Laughter is a way to get rid of you, it clears you, it relaxes you and makes you happy.
    Smiling in a family is a sign of appreciation and affection towards your loved ones, it also helps you to form bonds with people with whom you have less relationship.
    Through things that make us thank or smile we can meet people and create friendly links between them.
    With laughter we can create many relationships.

  6. We live in a society where is important the facial expression because it is the way that other persons can know what we feel. Laughing is so important in the relationship because people feel better and they forget all the problems that they have and it it is so popular.

    When we laugh, our brain produce endorphins that it is the hormone of happiness and we feel better and happier, even all the problems are forgotten in that moment. Laughing have many advantages for the health and it can enlarge the life and people has better life quality; also, the immune system is better. These endorphins raise our ability to ignore pain.

    Many people ask why we laugh, we often laugh simply because someone else is laughing. Laughter, like yawning, is behaviourally contagious, and we can catch it easily from other people, especially if we know them. Also, we laugh because some things seem stupid or it unexpected.

    Laughing is the best pain medicine and it is a positive emotion that we need in our daily life because we will be happier.
