What we're about

Public Group

It doesn't matter who you are, you are welcome. Laughter is a universal language, so we understand each other,The act of laughing is something humans do that is understandable by everyone. It doesn't matter what race,countery, religion, ethnicity, or gender you are; we all recognize laughing as having a good time and enjoying life. Laughter is often contagious just like smiling. I know that from experience that I can start laughing just by watching other people laugh; without actually knowing what they're laughing at. Laughing is one of the most enjoyable things in life.

This group is for Laughaholics , we using Laughter Yoga which is a unique technique devised by Dr Madan Kataria, a doctor from India, whereby you can learn to “Laugh for no Reason”You don’t even need a sense of humour, no funny jokes or comedy programmes – just a willingness to laugh – and in the current climate everyone needs to laugh. A happy soul Attracts Positive Life experience. Happiness is a light that shines so bright and leaves no room for doubt and darkness.

A good time to laugh is any time you can. ~Linda Ellerbee.

Enjoy the moment live in, and appreciate the present The past is history,tomorrow’s a mystery,and today’s a gift–that’s why they call it “the present”. Live in the moment and laugh unconditionally.
