Laughter is the Best Medicine. Humans were designed to laugh. Laughter is nature's stress-buster. Laugh yourself healthy! We all know that laughter makes us feel good. A regular 20 minute laughter session can have a profound impact on our health and well-being. Laughter can significantly improve your immune system, prevent against colds and flues, help the healing the process.  Laughter is a very gentle exercise and it's a fun way of exercising.

Laughter fills your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. You can breath far more easily after a laughter session, it opens the sinuses. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise.

 

"Psychologist William James in 1884 found that the state of mind, whether positive or negative, is mirrored in a matching bodily expression-- or ‘body behavior’. In his research he found that each emotion in the mind has a corresponding behavior in the body. He discovered that bodily
enacting any emotional behavior triggers corresponding changes in the state of mind. The connection works both ways: from mind to body and body to mind.


Consider these:
Sexual thoughts lead to arousal of sex organs in the body, and stimulation of the body’s erogenous zones also induces sexual arousal in the mind. Acting sad and depressed (for example sitting in a moping, depressed posture and replying to questions in a sad and dismal voice) soon leads to real emotional sadness."

 

Actors who portray strong emotions often tell of real-life emotional repercussions. Many film and theater actors have reported that while performing tragic roles they experience a real sadness. Dr. Dale Anderson, MD (Minnesota USA) tells of an American actress who played tragic roles for so long that she fell into depression with classical physical symptoms. After extensive physical testing, her doctors declared her physically healthy, but psychologists suggested she stop playing tragic roles and turn to comedy. As she followed their advice her symptoms and depression completely disappeared.


The same phenomenon can be observed in athletes participating in competitive sports. Physically they act in a brave and courageous manner, shouting and making body gestures to put their mind into a positive winning state. This reduces their fear and anxiety. Soldiers use similar tactics when preparing to attack, often shouting at the top of their voices to ‘psych themselves up’. This bodily expression of courage creates matching emotions in the mind." Excerpt from Dr Kataria's book 'Laugh for No Reason'
