Looking for a way to destress and lift your spirits? Instead of reaching for a chocolate bar or your favorite ice cream, try the simple practice of laughter yoga! Laughter yoga can boost your mood, helping you turn that frown upside down within minutes. It may sound hokey pokey, but it has been scientifically proven that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter.

  1. Laughter connects you with those around you and puts a positive vibe out there to attract positive people into your life.
  2. Laughter lowers levels of stress hormones (epinephrine and cortisol) and helps to make you feel relaxed.
  3. Laughter is an aerobic (cardio) exercise that brings your body increased levels of oxygen and makes you feel a natural high!
  4. Laughter releases endorphins from the brain cells- creating a feel good mood!
  5. Laughter helps to strengthen the immune system
  6. Laughter helps you create positivity in your day (even during the tough times). 
  7. Laughter is way to release all the stress you have been holding in your muscles all day.
