Laughing in the library


On Mon, Jan. 9, at the Phillipsburg Free Public Library, Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, Cynthia Curtis leads an hour-long session starting at 3 PM. After some basic breathing exercises followed by childlike play activities, contagious, infectious laughter spreads. For 21 years Laughter yoga, a simple yet profound whole-body exercise method, has been moving the world toward health, happiness, and peace.

Laughter Yoga is designed for anyone who wants to feel good. It is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between voluntary and involuntary laughter. A person gets the same physiological and psychological benefits if the laughter is real or fake.

Laughter helps to change your mood by releasing feel-good endorphins into the blood. Laughter is a healthy cardio exercise that beats stress. Laughter is a positive energy. If you laugh more you attract more friends. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor or comedy without special equipment or advanced training, available free, 24/7. Start now and become a ‘Daily Laugher.’ Join a worldwide peace movement started by an Indian Physician Madan Kataria and his yoga teacher, wife, Madhuri.

Make a hilarious declaration that life is worth living. Practice happiness.

The Funny Farm Laughter Club at Perfect Christmas Tree Farm in Phillipsburg NJ is the place to practice happiness. We all have the ability to laugh and be happy. Laughter transcends status, class, age, race and culture, and we all laugh in a similar way. Laughter is a gift we all have, and we can give it to each other because laughter is contagious. People can catch it from one another.

Liberate your laughter. Become playful and laugh as children do. Studies show that playfulness and laughter create positive emotions in all age groups. Laugh for exercise. Laughter Yoga burns calories. More oxygen reaches the lungs when you laugh and you breath more deeply. Laughter increases blood circulation to the brain and body. Laughing reduces stress and boosts creativity. Laughter exercises the body and the brain.

After twenty minutes of Laughter Yoga, Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphins are released into your bloodstream. They are peptides that activate the body’s opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect. Take these feel good feelings home to your family and friends and infect them with laughter. Better, bring them along to the Funny Farm.

The farm is easy to find.

Its aim is to promote the awareness of laughter as a valid form of complementary medicine and as a vehicle to world peace.
