Instant Mood Lift

There are a couple of ways that I like to reduce my stress or cheer myself up if I'm a mess:
Cute Overload and LOL Cats.

Laughter and smiling releases endorphins in the pre-frontal cortex of one's brain, the reward center. Therefore, one is more relaxed and feels good (the brain sees laughing as a reward). This is beneficial to one's heart and mental health and can aid in recovery from an illness.

Check this out about laughing. It says there are places where people practice "laughter yoga". Where can I find that studio? I'm totally there!

Who cannot crack a smile after seeing some of these pics from the above mentioned websites?
