At the height of laughter, the Universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities (Jean Houston)

The old saying “laughter has is the best medicine” has a lot of truth to it. Laughter has many healing properties that are not limited to just mental health or reducing stress. 😂

For those who are struggling amid the current climate, it may seem challenging to smile and laugh in the midst of feeling sad, down, or depressed. 😔

And so, one of our favorite little neighbors, a brave boy from across the pond, is helping all of us to remember that we can overcome suffering and release our burdens by connecting to one of our biggest superpowers, the gift of laughter. 🦸
