It’s easy to become so sad or worried about our problems that we lose sight of life’s simple pleasures. Taking the time to do something you enjoy can keep your mind off your worries. Completing a favorite hobby can also help you feel good about yourself.
“Laughter is the best medicine” is an age-old saying. A “good laugh” helps relax our bodies and indirectly boosts endorphins, a chemical in the brain that acts like a natural painkiller. And let’s be honest…you just can’t be sad when you’re laughing!
