Live Happy Life
... laugh not because life is easy or perfect ...
but because we are grateful for ALL the good things we have
and all the bad that we know we DO NOT have !!!
laughter is a powerful healing tool:
natural antidote against anxiety and depression
as it reduces stress-related hormones
and releases endorphins
(hormones of happiness, natural analgesics, energize
and stimulate optimism, self-confidence, etc.)
stimulates and strengthens the immune system
contribute to the good functioning of the gastroinstestinal
detoxifies organs and body
provides excellent cardiac exercise, 1 minute laughter is equivalent
to 10 minutes of rowing or running
energizing the metabolism
stimulates respiratory function
The "laughter yoga" is a technique oriented to physical exercise.
It is based on the scientifically proven fact that either we laugh spontaneously or profoundly the above benefits are the same.
The recipe is simple:
we combine laughter exercises with yogic breaths,
rhythmic applause and childish mood!
It is not necessary to have a good sense of humor or the reason to laugh, we laugh like exercise, maybe pretending at first, but because we have a visual pause with the other members of the group, laughter becomes spontaneous and contagious !!
Repeating the laughing exercises the brain develops new neurons
that produce "happiness hormones" in the body!
The "laughter yoga" started in a park in Mumbai in India
with just 5 people, with founder Dr. Kataria
and today there are over 6,000 laughter clubs
in 62 different countries in the world
