Big thank you to Presence St. Joe's Hospital for hosting my event in March. Both Debbie Brisebois and Len Lempa did a wonderful reminding us how to take care of our own mental health. Learning about laughter yoga was so awesome. I was really inspired to incorporate a lot more laughter in my life. It was fascinating to hear about all the healing powers of laughter.
