The Holiday Season

Milkshake Laughter!

Milkshake Laughter!

The holiday season is here. Thanksgiving and Chanukah are one week away. Many people experience a high degree of stress over the holidays. Laughing is an excellent way to help relieve stress. However, when people are stressed it may be hard to laugh at jokes. During Laughter yoga we laugh unconditionally,just laugh without a trigger. There have been many studies that have proven that laughter lowers cortisol levels. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

Clinical research conducted at Bangalore, India and in the United States has proved that Laughter lowers the level of stress hormones (epinephrine, cortisol, etc) in the blood. Healthy Exercise to Beat Stress: Laughter Yoga is like an aerobic exercise (cardio workout) which brings more oxygen to the body and brain thereby making one feel more energetic and relaxed.

5 Benefits of Laughter Yoga

Good Mood and More Laughter: Laughter Yoga helps to change your mood within minutes by releasing certain chemicals from your brain cells called endorphins. You will remain cheerful and in a good mood throughout the day and will laugh more than you normally do.

Healthy Exercise to Beat Stress: Laughter Yoga is like an aerobic exercise (cardio workout) which brings more oxygen to the body and brain thereby making one feel more energetic and relaxed.

Health Benefits: Laughter Yoga reduces the stress and strengthens the immune system.You will not fall sick easily and if you have some chronic health conditions, you will heal faster.

Quality of Life: Laughter is a positive energy which helps people to connect with other people quickly and improves relationships. If you laugh more, you will attract many friends.

Positive Attitude in Challenging Times : Everyone can laugh when life is good, but how does one laugh when faced with challenges? Laughter helps to create a positive mental state to deal with negative situations and negative people. It gives hope and optimism to cope with difficult times.

    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

    However, these gardens will take a lot more time and energy to
    create than koi waterfalls. The statue will need to be moved so that the Heron thinks it is another bird’s territory.

    A shady place is very important because the fish can get sun-burned, and that will
    not be a good thing.

    As a result, the installation of waterfalls for

    The statue will need to be moved so that the Heron thinks it is another bird’s territory.
    When first planning to learn how to build a waterfall and pond, there are two
    very important structures that you need to focus on first: the part of
    the pond where the water falls and the structure from which the water falls from.

    SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good
    success. If you know of any please share.


  38. I think what you posted was very reasonable.

    However, think on this, what if you typed a catchier
    post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    however what if you added a post title that
    grabbed people’s attention? I mean The Holiday Season – Connecting
    The Peaces : Connecting The Peaces is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they create post titles to grab viewers to open the links.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about
    what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
