World Laughter Day

“World Laughter Day is May 1st, 2024!”

What does that mean?

As I write this, today is May 1st, 2024. That means 2 very important things:

  1. Today is World Laughter Day.
  2. Today is the first day of Mental Health Awareness Month.

We live in a world that has too much anxiety, fear, depression, sadness, and worry.

Every once in a while we need to learn to find something to laugh about, something that brings us joy.

Mental Health Awareness Month is filled with amazing activities and events designed to help bring better awareness to mental health struggles while also removing their negative stigma. 

World Laughter Day is just the beginning.  

If “laughter is the best medicine”, we need to find more time to allow laughter in our lives.

Laughter releases important chemicals, like dopamine, into your body. These chemicals help to relieve stress and heal the mind and body.

The Commitment House is an Alcohol and Addiction Treatment Program and we know how important mental health is.

Most people who become addicted to something are trying to self-medicate their mental health struggles. Drugs and alcohol often provide temporary relief for mental health symptoms. 

Today, we want to let you know that it is okay to talk to someone about your struggles. Don’t let pride or ego get the best of you. 

Be vulnerable.

Allow yourself to talk to someone about what you’re struggling with and get help, today!

We hope you will participate in various Mental Health Awareness Month activities in your area; don’t forget to laugh today!
