We All Need Humor by Lynn Lovegreen

 


It’s tempting sometimes to see the world through humorless eyes. There’s always terrible news about bad things happening, and we do need to think about serious things if we’re going to make the world better. But sometimes, a little humor can help, too. A wise person knows when to be serious and when to laugh. 

 

Balance is necessary for a healthy life. That means taking time to laugh now and then. Whether it’s joking around with family, making puns with friends, reading funny books, or watching humorous shows or movies, a little laughter can lighten our load.   Laughing with others also builds bonds. Those connections are good for everyone’s mental health, and can help us do the serious work when we have to get back to the job.

 

Connect with family and friends, and the whole world if that’s your thing. Share a laugh.

 

The Muppets have always been one of my go-tos when I need a giggle. Here’s a link from Recipes with The Swedish Chef, in case you need a little lift:

Laughter is good for you, and for all of us! Enjoy!

Balance is sooo important and now that I'm two weeks out from my 2nd Pfizer vaccination, I will be bringing more balance into my life. Living alone with no one to talk in person, in the moment has been difficult for me. I do feel better today and am looking forward to this weekend when I can see my great grands for a few hours - no masks, no temperature taking and Lots of hugs!

Thank goodness you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, Judith. Hang in there, and enjoy those kids!
