A Good Laugh and a Long Sleep – Wise Words Wednesday

Good laugh and long sleep

“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.” – Irish proverb

Exhaustion is not something that is new to most of us. Finding time to rest is tough too, but finding time to laugh with friends can be tougher.

Recently some friend and I did find time to be together. (It was our third attempt in four months for a girls’ night. Life is just too full.)

In the brief hours we were together, we enjoyed food, drink, and conversation. The best part was that with each drink, bite, and topic discussed we laughed.

That night I went to bed with a smile on my face and the evening’s antics running through my mind. The normal worry and weight of my day was not there and I slept.

I slept REALLY well.

The next day dawned brighter and I felt recharged. That laughter and rest were definitely what the doctor ordered. So here’s my prescription for you.

Make laughter happen. Find time to relax. For best possible results add laughter followed by rest. You’ll be glad you did.

  1. You don’t need to be a doctor to advocate this wisdom!! Too many with MH shut this part out thereby creating self perpetuating isolation. Social anxiety does the same too. We’re not designed to behave like that. Friends are important stress relievers. You can’t buy laughter of a good time with them. Through them you grow as an individual.

    Hmm, must have needed this to remind me!!

      1. I think I need to be here more often! Time has really caught me out this year. July already. I must keep first connections on the blogosphere much higher on my priority list!

      2. I know the feeling! I’m of the opinion some of it is me not being mindful enough to slow down and do new things or actually set my own goals that are independent of others. I’ve found in the past that creates a sort of Groundhog Day where they run together at breakneck speed. That time to breathe thing. Really must cross paths way more Melanie x
