Did I ever mention how important laughing is? Most people know me by my serious side, but I am a prankster at heart. Truth is, I like making people happy. This is a collection of video clips that I found on Youtube. If you find a few minutes, you have to watch these videos. At the least, you will leave with a big smile on your face! I truly hope this makes your day.


Many of the friends that I talk to and communicate with on Hubpages are always online. We are always writing an article or reading someone's work. For those of you that view writing as a job, it leaves very little time for play. Most of us that write have full time jobs or full time responsibilities. At the end of the day, stress can pile up.

Although most of us are sitting in front of a screen all day, working online can be very stressful. Some articles can take hours to write, if not longer. Between the writing and research, it can even take days. Writing an article can be stressful. If your throw in the stress at home and work, it can be a daunting task.

Stress can take a huge toll on the body, physically, mentally, and emotionally. In order to avoid stress, we must do things that take our minds off everyday life. You need to try and find that special happy place. You may find it in a hobby, a walk, fishing, or by watching funny videos. You know what makes you happy, don't put it on the back burner! Your overall happiness, when positive, can add time to your life. At the least, it won't take any time off.

Stress can cause several different health issues, such as high blood pressure, panic attacks, headaches or migraines, and heart complications. We are always going to have stressful moments, there is no way to hide from it. You can find healthy ways to deal with though. You don't have to let stress control your moods! Find what makes you happy and escape. Once you practice these methods, it will become natural to you. Best wishes.

      HBN, LOL! They truly would make a great commercial. That actually is a great idea. You know what, your right about the grooms. I never realized that many pass out either. 3 or 4 of them really hit their heads pretty hard. I bet they felt pretty bad on their honeymoon:) Glad you liked it and many thanks. See you soon.

      Loved the video. Those head over falls would make a great commercial promoting the use of helmets on playgrounds and when riding bikes or on roller skates or blades.

      Didn't realize, however, that so many grooms passed out at the alter. Perhaps helmets should be mandatory at weddings! (Just kidding of course!).

      Thanks for starting my day with a good laugh.

      I also liked how you wove in the facts about stress and the stress of writing itself.

      Voted up across the board. You did a great job on this hub.

      Ironic when you think about it, us laughing and relieving our stress at the expense of someone else’s stress. Aren’t we a rotten lot. Lol

      Loved the video and still laughing.

      Very odd thing, but I'm not seeing any of the videos. Instead, there's just a large blank space where the videos should be.

      Smiles are great investments: the more you collect, the better you feel. Enjoyed the video. Rated as interesting.
