From a very young age, we would laugh up to 300 times a day, without reason, for pure pleasure. In adulthood, it would be less than 20 times a day 1,2. Even if not all researchers agree on this data, it seems that school, work and social conventions are gradually encouraging us to become more serious and lose our capacity to laugh spontaneously. Too bad, because humour and laughter are now shown to be good for health, and are, among other things, a good antidote to stress. If you donâ€™t seems you laughter, laugh therapy helps you sure.
Letâ€™s Know what is laugh laughter therapy and its principles.
Laugh therapy helps to make a person laughing, and laughter helps oxygenate the body, reduce muscle tension, and massage the ribs in addition to working the diaphragm. This promotes, among other things, the elimination of residues present in the lungs and increases the respiratory capacity. It seems that laughing - whether funny or not - could help cure all kinds of problems.
We mustn't believe that we laugh only when it's funny. This author of several books has been studying the mechanisms of laughter for many years. His observations led him to conclude that laughter exercises primarily a social function, which could partly explain its importance in the psychological balance of people.
People who have a greater sense of humour are less shaken by stressful experiences. They are more likely to view them as stimulating challenges than as painful ordeals. In addition, they generally have higher self-esteem and are more realistic in their self-esteem. Optimistic in nature, they have a fuller social life. But, the author points out that it is difficult to determine with precision if these favourable states result from the sense of humour or if it is not rather these states which make it possible to approach life with humour.
Rod Martin also points out that humour can also be used unhealthily. It can serve as an escape or an unconscious defence mechanism to flee from one's problems or avoid confronting them in a constructive way, or to denigrate others.
In short, laughing and developing a sense of humour is good for physical, mental and emotional health. But how can this be achieved if one is not, at the outset, a natural "perky"? One can, of course, undergo psychotherapy or learn personal development approaches to have more humour in order to better face life and "unhappy" events. A more direct way is to participate in a Laughter Club, or to do Laughter Yoga!
It is much more fun to go to a laughing session, also called Laughter Yoga or Rigolotherapie. The group effect amplifies the laughter and the warmth which emanates from it warms hearts.

By pretending to laugh, finally we manage to laugh or even catch a laugh. Laughter is good for your morale and your body, so we also move around the room. Each session ends with a guided relaxation to welcome the last laughs.

When the risk of the onset of cardiovascular disease was announced, the "risk factors" act as the identity.
