How Self-Initiated Laughter Can Make You Feel Better
Laughter triggers a chain reaction that
can make you happier and healthier.
by Christopher Bergland, son of the researcher Richard Bergland, M.D who inspired Norman Cousins to write his book: Anatomy of an Illness.
That, in turn, was the inspiration for Dr. Madan Kataria to found Laughter Yoga.
“Cousins describes how he stumbled on the health benefits of laughing,
“I made the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep. When the pain-killing effect of the laughter wore off, I would switch on the motion picture projector again [to watch Marx Brothers movies] and not infrequently, it would lead to another pain-free interval.” “
JUST FOR FUN
What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul!
“Laughter is too important to be left to chance. …”
All for now,
Love, Laughter and Smiles
