Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine Lord Byron.
The reality of life challenges can have a subtle or cascading effect our our physical and mental health. The routines and structure of today’s civilisation is more demanding than what we would prefer at times. On top of the weekly ups and downs we all face is the worldwide pandemic of Covid 19. The restrictions and losses many are facing can make life tougher than a normal winter. I am privileged to meet many daily from different walks of life and can see the toll the regime is having on people in general. The biggest loss I see and genuinely feel is their pain of isolation especially the vulnerable. This post is for everyone but if you know someone who is struggling this can make a difference.
I have seen pain in all it’s guises from personal experiences, to the reality of others horrendous ordeals. The panacea for me is humour and it is free. I will add let the emotions do the work if your are in pain emotional or physical go with the flow.
The mind can be an enemy or friend it’s how you look after it. Imagine it’s a close friend and how would you treat it? Imagine week in week out the same routine with the same and new daily challenges. The sunshine of humour and sharing that humour is cheap medicine and Lord Byron had a few problems in his life so he knew what he was saying. So make time to have a laugh , watch comedy , relax and have a joke don’t be too serious.
There’s no life without humour. It can make the wonderful moments of life truly glorious, and it can make tragic moments bearable. Rufus Wainwright
