It brings your awareness to the fore and most importantly improves your blood circulation, oxygen and makes you breathe out very efficiently. Improves your digestion, removes your stress, thus removing tension knots from your body and from your mind. Laughter brings pleasant and joyful feelings immediately, uplifting the mood.

There is enough happening on this earth under the sun. People are depressed. People are upset, angry, disappointed, anxious, full of apprehensions, fears, phobias. People don’t have much to look forward to. If there is one activity which can break and disrupt the pattern of these negative emotions,

It is laughter. Laughter can change the landscape of a human mind, bring it from the depths of the lows and take it to the sky high. If there is one thing, I’d ask people to share with the world and fellow humans is laughter.

 How laughter yoga helps people deal with health issues

Laughter can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression because it increases the production of feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine.

Laughter also improves general health outcomes by lowering blood pressure, decreasing inflammation, and bolstering the immune system.
Laughter yoga offers a natural way to relieve pain and divert attention for those who are receiving medical treatment or have chronic conditions.

Laughter is an excellent supplementary therapy for pain and discomfort management because it causes the release of endorphins, which are naturally occurring analgesics.
Additionally, laughter yoga encourages stress relief and relaxation, both of which are critical for assisting the body's healing process.

Nervous system related problems reduce. It improves Lung capacity.
