Mental Health Giveaway Hop


Welcome to my stop on the Mental Health Giveaway Hop, hosted by I Am A Reader & Reading in Twilight.

My favorite mental health tidbit is something everyone probably already knows but tends to forget about in day to day life. Laughter is a great stress reliever. It releases dopamine and endorphins within the brain. The effects are instantaneous. So the next time you're feeling stressed or down, find something funny to watch on TV or try youtube.

I am giving away a book that I read as a child. It helped me through some rough patches, and is one I still turn to today. I think Dr. Seuss is very therapeutic. Something about Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are just resonates with me. If you're stuck in the 'Why Me?' doldrums, this book will pull you right out.

Excerpt:

"When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, when you start to get mad… You should do what I do! Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky! Some people are much more…Oh, ever so much more…Oh, muchly much-much more unlucky than you!"
