Laughter Yoga – Communication and Physiological Benefits
Are you becoming used to the idea of and hearing about the benefits of Laughter Yoga? Increasingly it is being recognised in many areas of life, businesses, groups, social and most situations would benefit from partaking of a Laughter Yoga session. The primary purpose of today is to offer you a new downloadable document 10 Ways to Incorporate Laughter Into Your Daily Life. It could be good for you to read and share with others who could do with more laughter in their lives. It is to encourage the practice of laughing more often, either alone, or when you in company of other people.
Laughter is Contagious and Helps Communication
Laughing together assists in connecting people, particularly as we establish eye contact with each other and we all know that the eyes are the ‘windows of the heart’. A bond is created between people, bridging natural gaps that happen, as we all see life differently. Laughter helps to build trust and in the childlike fun that we do as we laugh, barriers are broken down. It is great in business and in fact any gathering of a group of people, as it does not discriminate and brings people together with ease.
Great for the Body and Mind
Physiological benefits of laughter that help make it the ‘best medicine’ include the following. Reduction of stress as it produces feel good endorphins into the blood stream, which also improves blood circulation. It relaxes your muscles and is an aerobic exercise which in fact if you were to laugh 100 times, that would equal 10 minutes on a rowing machine or 15 minutes on an exercise bike.
As well it improves one’s respiratory system and is an excellent form of exercise for Asthmatics, when practiced gently. Laughter also assists in lowering blood pressure and has been called internal jogging, as it helps the jiggle and rub the internal organs.
Laughter is great for a sedentary lifestyle, especially seniors and carers who may have less opportunity to exercise. This helps prevent obesity and lower sugar levels. And it is great for the immune system, in helping one stay in optimal health.
Of course remember other factors relate to feelings of wellness, which most of us would be aware of, to eat properly, rest, be grateful, innumerable things which I will talk about sometime soon.
