Hi, and welcome to this week’s blog post!
This week there are two awareness days that called my attention and that I think can work well quite nicely.
Blue Monday is meant to be the most depressing day in January – due to the weather, the dark and short days, and depleted bank accounts awaiting for the next payday.
Rather than focusing on how depressing this day can be, why not turn our frowns upside down and find funny stuff to read and watch on this gloomy January day.
This is where the second awareness day comes in: #bellylaughday!
I found the picture below and it made me smile and giggle. I thought I’d share it with you so you can laugh and giggle with me too!
Are you feeling happier after seeing this picture?
I sure am!
Now, let’s look at some benefits that laughter can bring to our days, especially on gloomy, cold and dark days like today.
Brings people together – social connectedness.
lowers blood pressure, preventing stroke and heart attacks.
Reduces stress hormone production, therefore increasing your immune systems ability to perform.
It’s a great exercise to work on your abs – a mini-work out!
Keep pain at bay through the release of endorphins.
Increases your sense of wellbeing, and it makes you happy!
It is a way to remove the seriousness of life, even if for a moment!
Laughter is something we can remember sharing with friends and loved ones – it keeps their memory alive.
Laughter will improve your life, wellbeing and your relationships.
“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.”
– Yiddish proverb
