Stressed? Try Laughter Yoga...

Are you stressed ? Deadlines coming up too fast? Juggling too many assignments? Then you need to take a breathe and laugh, cause everyone knows that ‘laughter is the best medicine’ especially at times of stress.

Good solid, hearty sustained laughter works the heart, diaphragm, abdominal and facial muscles - a complete aerobic workout. That sure beats getting on exercise bike for 10 minutes. Plus it puts you in a happy place…

Laughing for the sake of laughing, however, it not something that comes naturally. Most of us need a trigger - a joke, funny movie or sitcom, etc.

Laughter Yoga teaches how to laugh without triggers. Founded by Madan Kataria, an Indian medical doctor, it is one of the fastest growing health and fitness movements in the world. So if you can imagine yourself standing around in a group of strangers, laughing your head off, head over to the Laughter Yoga to find a club near you…. And let me know how you get on.(Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha…..)

Wow, that's really interesting. I'm into yoga (OK, used to be hardcore but haven't been lately), and had never heard of this. I'm sure there isn't one near my area, but I might look into reading about it more.

Hi Alicia, I've always been something of a supporter of laughter yoga - whenever anyone suggests I do yoga, I laugh!!!
Seriously, this fitness crazy isn't such a bad idea - the world needs much more laughter and much less sadness...

Hi Yvonne, heading over Grow Your Own Business...

Cheers, Liz
