As actress Marlo Thomas once said about laughter:
“Laughter is important, not only because it makes us happy, it also has actual health benefits. And that's because laughter completely engages the body and releases the mind. It connects us to others, and that in itself has a healing effect.”
We all need a big dose of laughter as often as we can find it within ourselves to laugh. With all the gloom and doom everywhere we look these days, laughter and joy bring us happiness and positivism.
We often live in a state of mind that we are powerless to do anything to help. Take a moment and pick up the phone. Call your loved ones, or friends that are depressed and give them a gift. It’s easy. Actually, just talk to them and let them know you care. And no, texts and emails do not count.
Then, when you get off the phone, order a gift they will enjoy, something that will bring them joy, as well as a bit of happiness and laughter. Flowers are pretty, but they die. Snacks and goodies are delicious, but not real healthy. Show you care about their health and wellness with an entertaining gift basket of puzzle books. Let our special team of handicapped adults put together a gift just for you to give.
These people are in need of love and laughter. Imagine the smile on their faces when they open their gift. Priceless! They have been a big part of your life for countless years. Continue to be there for them today, tomorrow and in the days after that as well.
