Play Hard, Get TogetherMay 08, 2015

Patch Adams wouldn't ring a bell to a lot of Aussies. He's a physician who wants to humanise medical care. This is why he dresses up as a clown, which is his way of making his patients laugh. The aim is to establish a close relationship, which will improve their condition. It won't take a lot of effort to make the sick children happy, and this was what Dr. Adams had in mind.

Robin Williams portrayed the American physician in “Patch Adams” (1998). The principle of an alternative health care could be seen in the film. This is the driving force behind Starlight Day. It happens in May 1, where the medical staff will try to make the young patients laugh. They dress up in their wackiest clown costume. It's the best medicine, if not the quickest way to recovery. And it won't cost much.

The event will raise funds for the campaign, but you're not bound to participate if you don't want to. However, you can learn some things from it. Don't insist that there's no need. Anyone can benefit from this unusual approach. (Actually, it's a sensible thing to do. But a somber mood prevails in hospitals and other medical facilities.) Here are a few things to remember:

Never forget to laugh hard. We tend to be easygoing. We also have our own brand of humour. Always remember it, especially if things don't turn out the way you want it. There are also some days when you don't feel like going out of the house. Whatever the reason(s), it will be better not to sulk. Social media can be the remedy, but there's a world out there. Maybe we can go out and enjoy the scenery. (Autumn can be splendid.) Recall those amusing moments with your family. Think of your favourite comedies. (It's impossible not to have one.) Don't be embarrassed to laugh out loud. You won't be ridiculed.

Always look ahead. There's no point in thinking what should have, could have, and would have. It happens to everyone, but it's the reaction - and attitude - that set some from the others. You can wallow in self pity or think that you still have something to be grateful for. And you don't have to remind yourself of those sick children, whom the organisers of Starlight Day have in mind. Learn the lesson and look forward to the coming days. If it's about relationships, then don't make a big deal out of anything. Show your affection to the ones who mean the most to you.

Don't take your health for granted. In hindsight, this is what Starlight Day is all about. Those who are healthy must be happy about it. There's nothing wrong in indulging now and then, but the human body can only take too much.
