We’ve had a fantastic month here at In The Moment and hope you have too. So many of you have been in touch saying you love our uplifting attitude, gorgeous images and beautiful design. Thank you so much! All that praise makes us feel very proud and reminds us how important it is to say thanks, to tell someone when you appreciate something they’ve said or done. Being grateful is an uplifting experience all round, and it’s a topic we’ve explored this issue, looking at how recognising the things to be thankful for can enhance our relationships and our lives (page 28). If you’re not great at saying thanks in person, use our postcards or !ower designs to send your message instead. I’m always interested in how I can be a bit…

Crowning glory We love a !oral crown, so we’re extremely pleased to note that they’re still very much à la mode this summer. Dior may have launched a ‘couture’ !ower garland, but for those who prefer to be original, making your own is this summer’s must-do activity. If you’re heading to a festival or outdoor event, there’s even more reason to gather a group of girlfriends together and book a workshop – a Google search should "nd one in your local area – or watch an online tutorial and host your own. Real or fabric, subtle or bold, a garland !owers in our hair makes us feel alive and free and just a little bit childlike. So embrace your inner nymph, weave yourself a glorious !oral coronet and revel in this simple antidote…

reasons to be cheerful

Scienti!c research has now proven that how we think a"ects the way we feel, and vice versa. This two-way relationship between the mind and the body, and how one inextricably a"ects the other, is known as psychoneuroimmunology. The hormones released into the brain and body when we laugh facilitate relaxation in both areas. This helps us to let go of things we’re worried about, or at least ease their e"ect on our mental state. When our body is calmed our mind responds likewise. Deep breathing and laughter help us access relaxation and peace, even if it’s only for a while. Laughing gives us an important respite in our hectic daily lives. It helps to shift our perspective and creates distance between us and our problems, enabling us to see di#culties from a…

laughter myths busted!

1 We must be happy in order to laugh This myth inhibits many people from laughing as they feel that it would be inauthentic or ‘false’ to laugh when they didn’t feel like it. If we wait for the perfect time to laugh, or wait for everything in life to be running smoothly, we may never laugh at all! Laughter can surprise us and offer relief in times of turmoil, sadness or even grief, if we allow it to. 2 We need something funny to happen before we can laugh Comedy is great and can be the trigger for many a hearty chortle. Yet evidence shows that the majority of our laughter doesn’t come from jokes; it comes from day to day conversations and playfulness. If we wait for something funny to happen…

three keys to laughing more

1 Understanding how laughter can help us We now know that laughter can help us mentally, physically, socially and emotionally in many different ways. Laughter is not just for fun (though that’s a huge reason!) – it is a healthy, natural tool that can ease our pain, free our spirit and strengthen us from the inside out. 2 Being willing to laugh Willingness is essential as it provides powerful energy in our mind, body and soul. If we nurture a laughter intention as we go through life this will enable us to feel lighter, stay playful and look on the bright side, instead of focusing on what has gone wrong. Being willing to laugh takes us halfway there. 3 Giving ourselves permission to laugh We’re allowed to laugh whenever we want. We don’t have to…
