Laughter is one of the best ways to feel good. Very few people realise just how important laughter is so we would like to spread the word as it is something we are quite excited about!!
When people learn to laugh at themselves or their situation their experience becomes very different.
Laughter is a very enjoyable exercise, Having a good old giggle massages your internal organs leaving you feeling invigorated and revitalised. It is a natural and very effective healing method and can help you to manage pain and illness. It is also FREE and has no side effects!
The more you laugh the more likely you are to see the bright side of life and to have a more positive out look which ultimately promotes healing.

Laughing releases blocks in your energy field and helps you to become more connected and in tune with yourself. Research shows that toddlers laugh on average 300 times a day and adults laugh on average 15 times a day! We think this is very sad and that adults should really try to laugh more, so here are some more benefits of laughter to help you realise how important it is….
