Laugh More – Feel Better

Laughter Yoga is laughing on purpose, for happiness and health. It is an exercise that you enjoy doing.

        Anyone who wants to can do Laughter Yoga. It is a mild cardio workout that people do sitting or standing and moving about. It is totally up to you how active you are.
Laughter Yoga requires no previous experience or special equipment. All you do need is the willingness to liberate your laughter and a sincere desire for a happier life.
These are some of the benefits of laughing on purpose:

IT RELEASES HAPPY HORMONES. You’ll like the feel-good chemicals that your body releases when you laugh. Having the right amount of endorphins in your system leads to a decrease in stress and your outlook improves. When this happens, your entire well-being is enhanced, making you more resistant to pain.
IT PROTECT THE HEART. A recent study shows that an anti-inflammatory effect is one of the consequences of laughter. This means that laughing often results in improving the blood vessels function that regulates blood flow. Because of this, you decrease the risks for cardiovascular diseases. Laughter truly is good medicine.
IT ALLOWS YOU TO BURN MORE CALORIES. It may come as a shock at first, but laughing burns calories. And laughter has another benefit for weight control. Life’s problems become something to laugh about, not a reason to overeat. Things stop eating you and you stop using food to deal in times of troubles.
IT IMPROVES YOUR MOOD. Keep in mind that being angry has an adverse effect on your body. When you are always mad at something or someone, it increases the risk of developing diseases. Fortunately, all it takes is a good laugh to take you out of a bad mood. Laughing brings extra oxygen into the lungs and brain, then you are better able to handle problems more creatively.
IT FOSTERS HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. Having a sense of humor is an essential component of a happy relationship. Laugher can make two people more connected to each other. People who laugh together often become friends. They stay longer in a relationship compared to those who are too serious about what they do every day. And remember, laughter is contagious. Your friends and family will catch your good spirit.
IT RELAXES THE BODY. Not everyone knows this, but after laughing, your body feels more relaxed than before. Since laughter relieves stress, tension, and other unpleasant emotions, the result is that you would feel lighter and calmer. You become more attractive because you have exercised your body with a smile on your face.

LAUGH AND BE JOYFUL


PRACTICE HAPPINESS
Release your inner child. Come out and play. Give yourself permission leave stress behind, for one-hour. Become more joyful. Laugh just because you can. Laughter Yoga shows you how.
TAKE YOURSELF LIGHTLY
It’s easy to laugh when times are good. Learn to laugh as exercise and you will laugh at life’s challenges, too. Become more resilient to troubles. Laughter produces endorphins, so you can handle troubles in a creative, loving, compassionate way, instead of with fear and loathing. Laughter is a good exercise for the heart and lungs and the pelvic floor. The lymph system keeps all the organs in the body healthy. Laughing moves the diaphragm and that stimulates the lymph system. There are no bad side effects to mirthful laughter. There is no medicine in laughter but laughter is good medicine.
LAUGHTER YOGA IS EXERCISE
Burn calories with a smile to your face, without strain or pain. No special equipment is needed. Everyone knows how to laugh so no experience is necessary. Do Laughter Yoga and friendships form.
LAUGHTER IS FREE AND AVAILABLE 24/7
Laughter is too important to leave it to chance. There may be nothing to laugh at, yet you need to laugh. Learn to laugh for no reason and change your life for the better. Laughter is contagious so friends and family will catch your joy. See the difference Laughter Yoga can make in your life.

The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. Mark Twain
