Reflect On Yesterday's Mission

Before moving on to your fourth mission, take a moment to reflect on yesterday’s mission. Which person did you choose to write your letter or draw your picture about? What makes this person special? Do you think they know how important they are to you? What are other things you can do to show how thankful you are for this person? Discuss these questions as a class, or break into small groups.

Agents, your fourth mission… is to LAUGH!

Laughter brings joy to everyone who hears it, so give joy to your classmates, friends, or family by laughing together. Set a timer for 60 seconds and just start laughing --- at nothing! Before the minute is up, you’ll be hysterically laughing at your own laughter. It might even be hard to stop laughing once the timer goes off!

With the good feelings you received from this experience, find ways to bring joy to others throughout your day. Be goofy to make someone laugh, leave a note for someone that makes them smile, or even dance silly for no reason with your friends! Bring this joy home to your family and friends!

Agents, remember... As you fulfill your mission, share your experiences on the Compassion Report Map! Your report inspires others, amplifying the power of your compassion and generosity!

Going Deeper:

Did you know that laughter is good for us? Really good for us. Laughter reduces stress and pain in the body, and gives a boost to our creativity, problem solving abilities, and even our memories! Laughing increases blood flow in the body and strengthens the heart, just like exercise. And laughter makes us feel more connected and bonded with others, helping boost our self-esteem and motivation with feelings of increased hope, optimism, and vitality. It even makes us more friendly, and yes, more generous toward others!

For Teachers/Parents/Mentors:

Learn how good cheer spreads through teen social networks, and how this can impact depression in adolescents.
