Simply coping with the pressures of daily life can be overwhelming. Passing gas … makes us laugh! "Critters and humans all gas it up, too!!!" We are living in a very difficult world. Good people experience overwhelming stress, pressure to excel and question values. Young children are burdened with enormous peer pressure and pushed to succeed at a very young age. Laughter offers a way to help people, young and old, to feel good about themselves. When you think positive and loving thoughts, you draw positive things into your life like a magnet. It is the law of attraction. Change your attitude … Change your life!!!

Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, many of us forget we have a joyful side. “The average child laughs or smiles 400 times a day," notes Dr. Lee Berk, College of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine. "The average adult laughs or smiles 15 times a day. In the midst of growing up, something is lost."

Besides being fun, laughter has great health benefits –both mental and physical.

  • Laughter reduces self-consciousness and boosts self-confidence
  • Laughter produces endorphins which counteract the production of stress hormones
  • Laughter appears to optimize the immune system

The idea of laughter as medicine is hardly a new concept. Norman Cousins popularized the movement with his 1979 book, Anatomy Of An Illness As Perceived By The Patient.

I want to make a difference in this world. I became a CLL, Certified Laughter Leader to re-enforce my desire to add laughter to the lives of children and adults … To make people feel good! To quote Dr. Steve Wilson, Psychologist, and founder of The World Laughter Tour, "Whether someone is battling an illness or just the pressures of everyday life laughter brings us into the moment, and that is a moment of joy, love and hope."

Sooo … pass it on! Not the gas…but the book, the cards, and the lessons you learn!
