‘A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. ‘
Cheerfulness is shown by always being ready to greet others with a welcoming word, offering words of encouragement, being enthusiastic about the task at hand, or having a positive outlook on the future. Such people are as welcome to others as pain-relieving medicine.
