“Good humor is a tonic for mind and body.
It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression.
It is a business asset.
It attracts friends
It lightens human burdens.
It is the direct route to serenity and contentment."

I don’t think there is anything as effective, quick, and easy as humor to change a situation from one side to another. I find that I need it every day in business.
I used to be an auto mechanic many years ago. In studying for that field, I learned that in an internal combustion engine, the metal parts are so close to one another and that if it weren’t for a very thin layer of engine oil coating the parts, they would melt from the heat of the friction from the movement of the parts. I liken humor to the oil in the engine. It keeps things lubricated, cools, and protects. It is a protective layer that keeps us from melting down.
There is nothing so quickly uplifting and problem-releasing as humor. It is also something that is best when shared with at least one other person. Get a group going and it can turn into a party!
In the heat of business, it is often the protective layer of humor that keeps things cool and smooth flowing.
Laughing Is Loving.
