Scientifically known as "madanus katariasis" - a rare, unusual Indian organism that bores it tick-like head under your skin, eventually making its way to the core of your being, resulting first in uncontrollable laughter, followed by unsurpassed JOY! Known also as the "HoHoHaHaHa Syndrome"....a good disease to catch!
Signs and Symptoms
• uncontrollable laughter, giggles, tee-hee’s, bubbling up often when least expected
• deeper and more restful sleep
• an unexplainable feeling of peace
• a more laid-back attitude about life in general
• less frequent temper tantrums of MUCH shorter duration
• an inexplicable desire to laugh out loud, especially when things are not going well

• less down time, more UP time
• all of which adds up to LESS stress
• fewer coughs, fewer colds

• the lack of depression – completely and totally MIA
• without provocation, breaking into a song from youth, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart!”
