Its no joke that daily laughter is the best way to release stress and keep healthy. What better than doing Laughter Yoga which is an ideal exercise for complete body-mind wellness. Laughter leader Diane Cohen conducts an hour long Laughter Yoga session on a regular basis in the library in Arlington for mostly elderly women.
The participants talk in gibberish and do different laughter exercises and deep breathing. They play like children, clap a lot, and fake laughter to de-stress themselves. If you cant attend a monthly Laughter Yoga session, thats fine: Its better to laughreal or fakeon your own every day, says Diane. Just 10 to 15 minutes can do everything from improve memory to boost your immune system, she adds.
