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.

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    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.
