LOL Laughter Wellness
Laughter is the best medicine for the soul
The concept of laughter yoga is based on a scientific fact that the human body cannot differentiate between real laughter and fake laughter if done with willingness – the benefits are the same. Which is why, even if you are faking it you can be assured that you are still doing your body a big favour. Laughter brings many physiological, psychological and physical benefits to the body, some of which include:
- Reduces stress hormones and blood pressure
- Releases endorphins and the feel-good chemical Serotonin in the brain
- Expels stale oxygen from the lungs and replaces it with fresh air
- Emotional benefits- Laughter shifts negative energy
The reason it is called laughter yoga is because it combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing. This brings more oxygen to the body and the brain which makes one feel more energetic and healthy.
