A Laugh A Day Keeps the Doctor Away !!!! REALLY

The next time you get stressed or depressed try fake laughing. It really works if you try it. I dare you to fake laugh for about 10 minutes, the longer the better. Hold a pen between your teeth horizontally. Leave it for at least10 minutes or longer. Ahhhh hahhhh do you feel different?

Holding a pen in  your mouth forces you to make a fake smile no matter how you feel. This sends messages to the brain that you are in a good mood. Ever heard of "Endorphins?" these happy chemicals get released into your bloodstream and you soon will feel its affects.

As a certified Laughter Yoga Teacher. I thought this was crazy at first, but I tried it and it worked. FUNNY now I am certified in Laughter Yoga.

I bet you never thought someone could actually get certified in Laughter. 

See the link below. This is backed up with research. Here is a report from CNN. Please comment. Do you think laughter is truely the best medicine?

  1. I remember as a boy how I used to belly laugh and carry on like a pork chop on a BBQ. How I miss those days.

    With age comes responsibility and hard work, and with that laughter can come second place to some things if you let it.

    Yes, life is too short to get trapped in work related stress, so yes, laughter is the best medicine.

    I'm smiling as I write this, and I have you and my wife and my kids, to thank for it.

    Take Care,
