Laughter Yoga and the Laughter Wellness program are extremely relevant and useful in the field of mental health because they help break the cycle of psychological negativity that we tend to fall into at times. Individuals who laugh easily and frequently have better self-esteem and a much more positive outlook on life in general. In the bigger picture laughter is a survival skill that relieves tension, keeping us fluid and flexible instead of allowing us to become rigid and breakable in the face of change.
Laughter is also a social activity. Research has shown that in the company of other people, you laugh 30 times more than when you’re alone. And the bigger the group, the more laughter.
A session of Laughter Yoga and the Laughter Wellness program tones your cardiovascular system, exercises the lungs and releases muscle tension. It will also help you find stressful events less disturbing and easier to deal with.
