Nothing can lighten a heart worn down by life than a good laugh. And a good therapist.
Combine those two- therapy and humor- and you’re looking at a wealth of stress-relieving, anxiety relaxing, mental health supporting free self-care.
Just look at all those buzz words. There is literally nothing that could be better for your mental health than these tweets.
After all, “humor is the best medicine.”
Joking aside, there are millions of twitter users (a completely made up number, btw) who participate in some form of therapy. And we all know when the twitter-verse comes together, they can provide some real gems.
So take 5 minutes from your day. And just laugh.
Giggles, smiles, or silent LOLs are acceptable also. And yes, I know that a LOL, by definition, is not silent. But you know what I’m talking about.
