When was the last time you had a really good belly laugh? The ones that make tears roll down your cheeks, making you hold your tummy with pain?
Did you know – A right good belly laugh, not only decreases stress hormones & increases immune cells, it also triggers serotonin known as the body’s natural feel good chemicals.
This & other endorphins released in laughter, can also act to temporarily relieve pain. It’s probably also why, many of us ‘middle agers’ are trying out Laughter Yoga.
Laughter Yoga was created in 1995 by Dr Madan Kataria in a park in Mumbai India, and it’s really taken off. Please see link.
