Fill This Prescription

August 25, 2020

Fill this prescription now

Currently, as we Navigate the extra stormy seas of the pandemic, wildfires, hurricanes, etc., a stronger dose of this medicine is highly recommended.  So take this medicine at least once a day and everyday.

Feeling depressed, anxious, angry, lonely, low energy, and more?  Well now there is and there always has been a prescription to cure all of that.  It is called smiling and laughing.  Smiling and laughing are the best medicines to keep you going.  It begins with and/or creates a positive attitude.  It also creates a healthy physiological response.

An additional benefit, is that when you smile and laugh, you make others smile and laugh.


It doesn’t guarantee to make a problem disappear.  It will make you feel better, stronger, and hence better able to deal with the problem.  Being stronger does give you a fighting chance.  As long as you’re fighting you have a chance of winning.

You have no control over the tests, hurdles, and struggles sent your way.  You do have control over how you respond.

There is no risk in taking this medicine, it is completely safe.  There is only upside.

Side Effects

Side effects may include: more friends, reversal of frown lines, a busier social calendar, a need to get your teeth whitened, a need to buy more clothes…….


Smiling and laughing includes the ability to laugh at yourself and the circumstances you are in, self-imposed or otherwise.  Whenever you are feeling any of the symptoms described above, try the following:

1.Laugh at something about yourself

2. watch or listen to a comedy or comedian

3. say cheese

The Clinical Trials

Much has been discussed and written about the Jewish sense of humor.  It is often noted that there have been so many Jewish comedians over the years, long before Jerry Seinfeld.  People always wonder how is it that after thousands of years of persecution, expulsions, pogroms, the Holocaust, etc., that Jews can still laugh and be funny.  The Jewish sense of humor is both self and situational deprecating.  The ability to laugh is both a survival mechanism and less discussed, is that we are taught to have faith that things will get better.  When we all have that faith and smile they will.

    If someone is looking for a second opinion to this prescription from more non-doctors, we agree whole heartedly. Also we recommend fresh organic local veggie and fruits, a little apple cider vinegar and watching your favorite sitcom — Mark and I can recite Seinfeld and do so any chance we get.

    Sincerely, TWIGGY and Family
