The first funny commandment I recommend for improving mental health is: Always smile extra. This commandment is doubly useful for depression and anxiety because it not only provides measurable emotional and physical relief but is completely under your control – no matter what your circumstances.
With a smile completely under your control, it can be your greatest resource using this natural humor remedy to speed up your mental health. You can look for other mental health treatments such as mindfulness and meditation if you have a peek here.

Smiling creates measurable physical benefits that you can experience immediately: your stress levels decrease, your immunity increases, your tolerance for pain and frustration increases, and your creativity increases.
This is great news for your active attitude towards sustainable mental health. You have tremendous preventive control over your mood – you can actually choose more energy and happiness.
The key to using this fun commandment to increase your sanity is to start practicing right away so that smiling becomes an established, habitual method of natural medicine for accessing humor. If you wait for a smile for your mental health to deteriorate and depression or anxiety overwhelm you, it will no longer be effective.
Smiling takes us straight to the second precept i.e natural humor medicine. It works best when we share, and this commandment shows you how to use the control you have gained in your physiology and mood by smiling. Actions and interactions are now easier for you because you smile more.
