Laughter Yoga enthusiasts are not the only ones celebrating laughter!
APRIL seems to hold more than enough opportunities to celebrate LAUGHTER!
To start off the month, we had a wonderful chance to maintain a good sense of humor in the wake of any April Fools pranks that may have been played on us. Whether you chose to play pranks on others, or were pranked, I hope you started this month known for ‘…showers that bring May flowers’ with a great deal of laughter!
Just yesterday, we celebrated our siblings with National Siblings Day. I can imagine few people who we share more uninhibited laughter with than our siblings, whether it’s reminiscing old times, making fun of your parents, or getting through the required ‘family events’ with a good case of the giggles.
Just 3 days away, on April 14, created by humorologist, Izzy Gesell, we’ll celebrate International Moment of Laughter Day, intended to encourage people to laugh. "Laughter comes right after breathing as just about the healthiest thing you can do." says Izzy. "It relieves stress, instills optimism, raises self-confidence, defuses resistance to change, and enhances all your relationships." It sounds a bit like Global Belly Laugh Day, which you may have celebrated with me on Jan. 24 at 1:24pm.
Whichever day you choose to laugh, it excites me to see that so much laughter is being encouraged around the globe. Don’t worry, there is still plenty of time to plan an amazing LAUGHTER PARTY and serve up some SERIOUS GIGGLES with your guests! At work, or at home, choose a short time period during the day and let your inhibitions fly out the window long enough to let the laughter in! Whether you celebrate locally, nationally or internationally, the point is to share some genuine laughter for at least a moment on Tuesday.
I recently friended Izzy on Facebook, and I hope he will accept my invitation to LAUGH with ME on Tuesday via a video chat room I will be setting up to laugh with friends in HONOR of INTERNATIONAL MOMENT of LAUGHTER DAY! Check my Facebook page for YOUR invitation to join in the fun! Maybe we’ll all get to laugh with the creator of this FUN day!
