Vishaak Gangasandra – Assembly Speech – Laugh and enjoy life
Lately we have all been stressed finishing off assessments, studying for tests or focusing on sports. In this busy world we live in, we are faced with stressful situations daily which we have to overcome in order to succeed in life. This stress slowly accumulates as time goes by and, if not properly dealt with, can be extremely injurious to us. There are many methods that we have in dealing with stress such as meditating, painting etc. These methods may be efficient; however, the easiest and most effective way of dealing with all the stress is by simply laughing.
It may not sound like much, but laughing and enjoying life has been proven to help people faced with hardships. Laughing has many physical benefits for the body. Anxiety increases blood pressure, causes muscle pain and fatigue and results in a lack of sleep. Allocating some time in the day for enjoying life, having fun and laughing, even if it’s only five minutes, can increase your life expectancy. It does this by reducing blood pressure, improving cardiac health and strengthening the immune system to fight diseases, after all laughter is the best medicine.
Whenever I work on assessments or study for tests, I ensure that I take a short break every hour so that my mind isn’t over-worked and is fresh to continue. This drastically improves my attention span and I guarantee that it will improve yours. Try it and see the difference it makes in your life. At the end of the day we are only given one chance to live life, so we have to live it to the fullest. Life is pointless without enjoyment and laughter. Never let stress take the best of you. Remember this, the days without laughter are the days wasted. Don’t waste your short time in the world.
