I am a very serious person – like I take things quite personally. So it is a compliment or a criticism, you can get to know how I feel by my facial expressions. So, someone just recently congratulated me on my academic achievements and I was on cloud nine. Immediately in the background, my jealous mother-in-law saw me happy and criticized me for my cooking skills and I came back to the Earth in just a few seconds. Haha, it is how it has been all these years for me. I really get moved by emotions and that’s why people term me as a highly emotional person.
So, today I come to the topic that is really close to my heart and that is SMILE. On my first meet with my husband, he told me to keep smiling as that is the best thing to do in life. I really didn’t know the depth of what he meant but as days and years have passed, I realize that smiling is the best medicine for our health that comes free of cost with no taxes and high-paying bills.
As times were tough for most of us due to the coronavirus lockdown, I was going through a form of stress which I was knowing but wasn’t able to heal naturally. Then I recollected how I used to giggle even in small jokes in my college days and I started watching comedy shows on the television such as The Kapil Sharma Show on SONY TV and Zee Comedy Factory. Also, I try to catch up with one comedy movie at least once a week in any language that is dubbed in Hindi.
Like movies such as Bawarchi, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Munnabhai MBBS, most of the comedy movies that feature Govinda and Kader Khan duo like Coolie No. 1, Hero No. 1, etc. are my favorites. There are endless movies that can really add a smile to your long face if you have been taking life too seriously like me. And let me tell you smiling is really good for the physical and mental health as it helps you take life one at a time in an easier manner.
