Laughter Therapy and Muscle Movements

Not only is laughter inclusive, but it also has no age limit. Consider a baby's first giggle or an older adult's eyes brightening with joy. Laughter is fantastic medicine and an activity that anyone may enjoy, regardless of age. Laughter therapy has been used to help people heal for generations, and because of its physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits, it is quickly becoming the preventative exercise of choice.

A complete chapter of Annette Goodheart, Ph.D.'s book "Laughter Therapy" is dedicated to the physical advantages of laughter. You discover that laughter activates all of the body's key systems. Have you ever laughed so hard that you fell out of your chair, or watched kids tumble to the floor and vomit food out of their mouths? Yes, it is like that! We literally lose muscle control when we laugh.

Laughter has been measured at speeds of up to seventy kilometres per hour leaving our lungs. It goes without saying that it puts a lot of strain on our lungs. Laughter sessions can give your heart and lungs a workout while also massaging your insides.

Laughter, more than any other form of exercise, massages our insides and settles or resets our mood. It's something that people of all ages can do together, and it's a lot of fun.

Laughter can help you relax and relieve stress:

Negative stress is mentally and physically exhausting, and if not diagnosed and addressed, it can lead to physical sickness. Laughter, like physical exercise, can help you cope with stress. Laughter is a pulmonary and cardiovascular workout because it stimulates your brain to make you more resilient to stressors by making your heart and lungs work quicker, which in turn delivers oxygenated blood to your cells faster.

Laughter as a form of education:

Laughter education can take many different forms, including clubs, classes, circles, programmes, and sessions. The most useful of these are systematic programming activities that give laughter exercise and attitudinal mindfulness to achieve general or targeted goals, often provided in a group environment. The following are some examples of goals for a laughter session:

  • Raise awareness of people's attitudes and sentiments towards laughing

  • Create opportunities for people to chuckle

  • Encourage people to laugh in their daily lives
