Laughing in the Rain: Self-Care for the Storms of Life based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Laugh at Life This is a combination stress-relief and humor book. The author has a background in social services, so is familiar with a lot of modern stressors, as well as, possible solutions for them. There are sixteen different chapters that run the gamut of parenting to home ownership to modern technology. Scattered throughout them are fifty different stress relievers the author calls self-care tips. Also included in the book are photos and sketches that carry out the humor. The author should be applauded for keeping the humor clean. In case any readers find it objectionable, the word “hell” is used a few times in this book. The humor is really geared towards adults, and even more so towards those who have children. That is not because of anything offending but, that particular group of people would more easily identify with the situations she talks about. The author lives in Alaska, so she has described some situations she has experienced there that I thought were very funny. I also liked the part about trying to buy a home, including the things that could go wrong when attempting to do that. In between the humorous parts, and the self-care sections of this book, the reader gets to know the author. She is a caring person who really wants to help people. Since her self-care tips are simple to put into action, it is easy to give them a try. Laughter is also a great way to combat stress. So if you are in search for some stress relief, with some humor thrown in, pick up this book. The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest review. I have not been compensated in any other manner.
