Importance of a Daily Practice is exactly what you would think it is, something you do everyday for yourself. Just like brushing your teeth. Try laughing alone!
Laughing Alone is a daily practice I do, this practice confirms that Laughter Yoga not only heals when practiced in a group but also when practiced alone. This exercise regime which comprises laughter and breathing exercises is very beneficial to people looking for alternative methods to laugh daily. This practice keeps me in the present and helps me physically & emotionally with pain and depression.
It is important not to judge yourself or be to critical. You are starting something new and when you do that it can seem awkward at first, but after a little while it becomes a new habit. You will feel if you don’t do it there is something missing. You can alternate deep breaths with laughter.
Laughing Alone is a revolutionary technique that helps develop a positive conditioning of joy and bodily experience of Laughter by doing laughter and breathing exercises over a period of time even without going to a Laughter Club. The brain develops new neuronal connections to produce happy neuropeptides and hormones in the body that can be triggered by the repetition of this physical action.
In NLP language, eliciting such a bodily reaction is called an “ANCHOR”. By performing a joyful anchor action with the body, the mind can experience the emotion of joy complete with the chemical reactions it triggers. Our body and mind can be trained to laugh at will. It’s like learning to ride a bicycle. Once learnt, you never forget it. (Credit Dr. Kataria for this information)
