Laughter

‘There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens:…a time to weep and a time to laugh.’
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4

‘Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.’ 
Psalm 126:2

When was the last time you laughed? Really laughed? The last couple of years have given most of us much to weep over. Many of us have shed many tears of sadness. But there comes a time for us to laugh. If you need help to laugh, animals, babies and small children provide moments that will cause you to smile and laugh. 

Laughter is good for our mental wellbeing. If you want help with caring for your mental wellbeing, Press On: Building resilience & mental wellbeing provides you with tips and input on how you can build habits such as laughter into your life.
