The quality of life is greatly influenced by your mood states at a
given time. You are not at your best when not in a good mood even
though you may be brilliant. Laughter Yoga has the power to change the
mood state and attitude from negative to positive within minutes. Once
the mood is good from within, the whole perspective towards situations
and people changes and the world seems fantastic and worthwhile.
Laughter Yoga is not about happiness. It is about joy. While happiness
is complex mental decision and depends upon many life conditions, joy
is a physical phenomenon that can be created at will even if you are
not feeling good.
It is easy to become joyful through laughter exercises and develop our
childlike playfulness. Joyfulness through laughter is the fastest way
to create a positive state of mind. Joy teaches us to enjoy what we
have today and every day. It gives life a new purpose and meaning. It
makes the world seem a better place.
Laughter Yoga can benefit medical staff and patients, supervised
depression groups, convalescing persons, retirement home residents,
prison staff and inmates, church groups, and sports teams. Laughter
yoga can also be used for team building, developing personal laughter
skills, family and children's parties and laughter retreats
