Laughter and Humor -Vital for Health and Learning

Taking life seriously is a big mistake and most of us do that at one time or another.. We think we have to control situations, conditions or people in our lives, cities, states and the world. When in reality just taking care of our bodies, minds, emotions, responses and interactions with others is a full time job.

Spreading a little joy, compassion, kindness or laughter on a daily basis is a huge contribution to our world, home or classroom. Children generally do not do what their teachers or parents tell them, they do what those important people in their lives do. Science (Dr.Candace Pert) discovered that happy cells make happy brains. This then helps our children have a sense of strength and well being. They handle stressful situations better. They have less anxiety in school,especially around test situations when they learn not to take life so seriously. Laughter is good for your health.Laughter relaxes the whole body. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and antibodies. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well being and relieve pain. Laughter protects the heart and the brain. Laughter increases blood flow and oxygen to the heart and the brain.

Daniel H. Pink discusses Laughter Yoga and Laughter Cubs in his book A WHOLE NEW MIND. Laughter Yoga is an exercise routine and a complete well-being workout that consists of laughing and breathing deeply. This form of yoga was started by Dr. Madan Kataria. He is a physician from Mumbai, India. It started with just a few people in 1995. Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon in over 60 countries.

Michael Neil, one of my favorite authors, presents a simple happy formula in his book FEEL HAPPY NOW! that I find interesting, especially for parents and educators.

       1. Give yourself better feelings by focusing on subjects that make you happy.

2. Tell yourself better stories.

3. Act on your own inner knowing not other people's perceptions and opinions.

The point of the formula and this blog is basically the better you feel, the more positive stories you tell yourself about your life. (This includes children and the stories they tell themselves.) The better your stories are, the easier it is to do what you know is right for you..and the better you feel. Laughter and humor

are wonderful tools to help all of us be healthier, happier and learn whatever we are trying to learn more easily.
