Cultivate the mind and support Geðhjálp

This winter, Geðhjálp, the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance, offers daily doses of small, straightforward tips intended to improve mental health. We call those tips “vitamin G”.

  • Laugh along with others

    It is important for each person’s quality of life to not take themselves too seriously. Others are not constantly thinking of you. You are part of the environment, the environment is not part of you. A sense of humour is a major part of the search for happiness and mental balance. It can always be used to relieve tension and stress. It’s good to laugh. Whether you really laugh at something spontaneously or make yourself laugh, the effects on your body’s defence systems are the same. A good laugh releases tension while bringing increased energy. Allow yourself to laugh heartily with your companions and feel how this strengthens all relations.
