Laughter really might be the best medicine. According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter is an effective stress reliever and it’s good for your health, offering both short-term benefits, such as soothing tension, and long-term effects, including improving your immune system.

So why not make LAUGH MORE your New Year’s resolution for 2017?

The best news of all, if you’re feeling pessimistic: Humor can be learned. The experts at The Mayo Clinic suggest developing your sense of humor by immersing yourself in funny material; surrounding yourself with witty photos or comics that make you laugh can actually hone your sense of humor and improve your health.

One of America’s best-loved cartoonists, Sandra Boynton—the wit behind the famous “Hippo Birdie Two Ewes” birthday card and a host of beloved children’s books like Barnyard Dance—offers a daily dose of laughter in a line of 2017 calendars. New this year: 365 Startling Days of Boynton, a Page-a-Day calendar featuring a Boynton cartoon for every day of the year, including essential but underpublicized holidays to celebrate with a smile, such as Static Electricity Day and Penguin Awareness Day. The calendar sits on your desk or kitchen counter and greets each new day with a dose of clever humor.
