Laugh as much as you breathe, love as long as you live. ~ Anon

Take a 30-Second Laughter & Stress Break with me!

(This is an mp3 audio file, turn on your speakers :-)

Research done at UC-Irvine shows that when you're feeling negative feelings - frustration, anger, sadness, disappointment, fear, boredom, anxiety - that one of the best ways to shift the energy is to take a laughter break. It's not always easy to do by yourself, so let me help you get started.

Turn Your Funk into Fun

When there is nothing to laugh about, do an "intentional" laugh anyway. Try it for 30 seconds 3x a day to boost the release of natural pleasure chemicals (endorphins) in your body. Really. You'll feel much better and the effects last at least twice as long as you laugh. If you don't believe me, try it right now. Notice how long the smile stays on your face after you finish laughing.

"We don't laugh because we're happy - we're happy because we laugh."
~William James, psychologist

"If we can learn to laugh unconditionally,
our happiness too will become unconditional"
~ Dr. Madan Kataria

"You don't stop laughing because you grow old.
You grow old because you stop laughing."
~ Michael Pritchard

"Why not laugh? You can always cry later."
~ Mom ~
