Laughter Therapy – Be Healthy!

Walk softly… Breathe calmly… Laugh intensely – Nelson Mandela – It is said that life is neither a dress nor a stress rehearsal. Seeing the absurd, playing with humour and smiling through tears all help us stay creative and bounce back from tumbles of life. In fact, this is exactly the mindset I invite us to adopt. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques and teachings rely heavily on emphasizing the strengths of the individual. Their focus is not on despair but on creativity, empowerment and resilience.

Fool your body as often as you can. We are like butterflies that flutter for a day And Think it is forever. – Carl Sagan – Do not wait until you are completely sure you are happy in order to find reasons to laugh! Just go ahead and laugh anyway; otherwise, you may have to wait for a long time for happiness to arrive. So, learn to fake it until you make it and “Just Do It.” The diaphragm, the muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity, gets a good massage during laughter. Your pulse slows down. Your blood pressure goes down. Laughter relaxes the body as well, and in addition it tones your system with an aerobic workout. When you are not tense, your creative potential will get a boost. No wonder laughter has been used as a therapy technique – see the video in www.stayingupbeat.com – a TV program shows India where large groups get together to practice the technique. What more do you need to be convinced that laughter is good for you!
