It is said that the highest form of laughter is the Buddha smile, denoting an inner attitude of detachment “in the world, but not of the world.” Laughter boosts mental functions, mental alertness, memory and interpersonal responsiveness. Laughter may help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Laughter may be a natural diversion. When you laugh, no other thought comes to mind. Laughing may also induce physical changes in the body. After laughing for only a few minutes, you may feel better for hours.
- Laugh every time you take a shower, or open the door of your car, fridge, bedroom…
- Laugh in public spaces. It may help you not to make eye contact with anybody around you, and find a socially acceptable way to do it. This could be reading a book, or putting a headset on your head, or a cellphone to your ear.
- Laugh in the bathroom or your car.
- Laugh when you wake up! Bring your hands to you as you inhale and create tension in the lungs, then laugh as you exhale.
- Laugh while doing things you don’t like doing to prevent from developing a negative mood.
The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze. Humor and laughter can cause a domino effect of joy and amusement. Laughter is healing. Laughter is an amazing source of both physical and emotional healing. Physically, laughter improves blood flow, deep breathing and boosts your immunity.
