A Lifetime of Fun. Victoria Laughter News. Also: Laughter Kills Negative Emotions & How Wealthy People Laugh

When we “plug in” to our “Mission in life” we enjoy a lifetime of fun.

Kind of like what Joseph Campbell said: “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where before there were only walls.”


As Deepak Chopra points out in his meditation series, our “MISSION” need not be some capitalized big deal.



Message: Join us tonight for Laughter Yoga at Ingredients Health Store on Store Street One block north of Capital Iron. 6:45pm…riot of fun or just a few giggles…you choose. We will be laughing weekly (but strongly) starting tonight. Free or by donation.



It may be that our mission at this moment is to help a friend through a tough time. It might just be to nurture ourselves by getting a massage.


Helping a friend allows us to feel as if we are making a worthwhile contribution.


Getting a massage allows us to feel good.


Either can move us toward a connection with our deeper selves and a connection with another or others. AND a connection to the Divine, or universal energy flow.


When we “get” this, we can choose to enjoy whatever we are doing.


It may be that our work has not been fulfilling. We can choose to make it so, just by MAKING THE CHOICE. By internally changing the attitude we bring to the task at hand.


Imagine a sink full of dishes when you wake up…every morning!


That’s what I saw in my first apartment away from my parents’ home.


It was disheartening and nothing to look forward to.


In an inspired moment, I realized that I could choose to like dishwashing. In that moment, I chose to do so.


As a result, I created a habit to wash my dishes right after each meal. Truth be told, I actually wash during preparation.


I enjoy it because I choose to enjoy it. I also enjoy the results: a clean and tidy kitchen. This feedback from the world of my kitchen (something outside of myself), gives me a brighter outlook on life.


It sets me up and allows me to enjoy my day more.


I can also choose to follow my own example and CHOOSE to enjoy any and all tasks before me at any time.


Do you others (perhaps you) could also choose to enjoy whatever is in front of them?


To view the task as part of my “mission in life” right now?


Do you think this kind of attitude might be useful in growing and learning?


Just an idea for you to consider.


Love, Laughter and Smiles.

About Victoria Laughter Yoga Club

Victoria Laughter Yoga Club is affiliated with Dr. Madan Kataria's School of Laughter Yoga. We laugh: Just ‘cause: ☺It feels good ☺Fights cancer* ☺Conquers stress ☺Improves circulation ☺Smooths out wrinkles ☺Is efficient exercise** ☺Slows the aging process ☺Boosts immunity(fight colds) ☺Oxygen to brain=clear thinking * Dr. Otto Warburg, President, Institute of Cell Physiology, Nobel Prize Winner (twice) says: “Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.” (My bolding) **Dr. W. Fry states that 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes or rowing or jogging.(Journal of General Psychology, 1938) Laughter Yoga goes beyond just laughter. Founder Dr. Madan Kataria has developed techniques to stimulate childlike playfulness, to adjust the aerobic and stretching component, and to promote emotional flow and release. Laughter Yoga can improve your physical health, release negative thoughts and emotions and get in touch with your spiritual nature. It helps us to develop an attitude of forgiveness, generosity, compassion and helpfulness while actively seeking the happiness of others. Combined, these principles can provide a powerful life-changing experience that we call the inner spirit of laughter. Laughter Yoga Clubs are non-political, non-religious, non-profit. There are a number of clubs in the Victoria area. Email for more info and current schedule:
