What do you do when you get rear-ended? Victoria Laughter News October 20, 2016

What do you do when you get rear-ended? I mean my car got rear-ended. What were YOU thinking?

 

Laugh, of course.

 

Happened after Laughter Yoga last night.

 

Fella behind us was distracted looking at the street signs to see what number block he was at.

 

I remembered to smile a little, laugh a little and then laugh on the  way home, do some “trauma release” also. Laughter by itself is great trauma release already.

 

No injuries…that we know of. Will get checked out as it is a shock to the system, of course. So want to either rule that out … or in.

 

Anger boils up right away, of course.

 

But the other fella did not do it intentionally. And ICBC waives the deductible for getting my bumper fixed. The other car’s nose was all smashed in, so it is more extensive.

 

Perspective is good to get too. There are folks living in war zones. Traumatized every day fearing for their lives and their families.

 

Accidents to happen. The ICBC lady was SO helpful and calming. A real tribute to  her profession.

 

Onward and upward, as they say.

 

If you notice me acting weird, shaking my head or anything, or wobbling, or..let me know. 🙂

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:
