Well In Mind: Self-Care Tip of the Week

Laugh every day!

  • Find a few simple items, such as photos, greeting cards or comic strips, that make you chuckle. Hang them up at home or in your office, or collect them in a file or notebook.
  • Keep funny movies, TV shows, books, magazines or comedy videos on hand for when you need an added humor boost.
  • Look online at joke websites or silly videos.
  • Listen to humorous podcasts.

According to Mayo Clinic, laughter can stimulate many organs; increases endorphins; gives you a good, relaxed feeling and relieves your stress response; soothes tension; stimulates circulation; aids muscle relaxation; improves your immune system; relieves pain; increases personal satisfaction; improves your mood and improves your self-esteem!
