Hi Sarika,

How are you; it's been a Long time, no see! We spent so much time together when I was home last month. I really miss your company. When I was there you were too busy preparing for your class XII exams. I hope the preparations are going well. I hope that you are taking sometime out for yourself in between the studying.

Dad has been telling me that you're really worked up about the exams. My advice to you is to prepare well and then take it easy. They're only exams and soon you will be done with them. I suggest you should join a laughter club in your area. That will definitely help you de-stress. Laughter is always good for one as it lowers the blood pressure and reduces stress hormones. Moreover, it cleanses lungs, body tissues and increases blood circulation. Laughter can prevent one from illnesses as it boosts the immune function.

Joining a laughter club will rejuvenate you completely and will produce a sense of well being.

Hope you'll follow my advice. All the best for your exams and keep laughing always!
