Pillar 2: Mental Wellness
August 25, 2022
Mental wellness includes caring for our intellectual health. This could be reading a book, learning a new skill, or doing a puzzle. Activities that keep our minds engaged and growing will keep us more engaged and balanced in our lives.
When they said laughter is the best medicine, they weren’t joking around. There are many physical and emotional benefits to laughter, including stimulating your heart, lungs, muscles, and brain, giving your immune system a boost, and releasing depression and pain-fighting endorphins.
Benefits of laughing:
Reduces heart disease
Natural pain killer
Helps you lose weight
Gives good sleep
Makes you look young
There is no reason not to laugh!
So next time you’re not feeling well, put on a comedy, pick up a funny book or call a friend who is sure to make you chuckle, and laugh your way to better health!
