This Saturday, November 3rd,  Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive, Comox, at 10:30 am exactly, we will dispel the 3 Biggest Myths About Laughter in our Laughter Yoga Session.

They are:

.

1. We need a Sense of Humor to Laugh – Senses of Humor vary widely between persons – what is funny to one person may be quite serious to another. When we practice laughing WITH folks and not AT what they say or do, we are not relying upon something to strike us as ‘funny’. A sense of humor is irrelevant.

 

2. We need to be Happy to Laugh – Babies and young children laugh easily because happiness is our true state of being. It has merely been covered with conditional behaviours that create feelings of fear and anxiety. Laughter can help release these feelings, and replace them with the joy we feel when relaxing and having fun.

 

3.  We need a reason to Laugh – Well now, no reason is necessary, but if you want a reason to laugh, there are dozens of great ones; many were outlined in the last post here on this page.

.

But, we can laugh for no reason because it feels SO GOOD.

.

This Saturday will be the last Laughter Yoga session for this year. We (Susan and Alan) plan on experiencing the joy of other Laughter Yoga Clubs in California and Arizona soon.

.

Bring a friend, your water bottle and your best laugh to share with us on Saturday November 3rd at 10:30 am.

She/he who laughs, lasts.

 

 

 

  One Response to “3 Myths About Laughter”

  1. When it says “We need to be happy to laugh” it is implying that an opposite is true (which it isn’t; it is another myth) “If I am not happy I can not laugh”. That is not true! This is one of the great ideas of Laughter Yoga, we don’t have to have any reason to laugh; we can just do it anyway, happy or not, through the laughter exercises we do in a safe environment, the Laughter Yoga sessions.! Be there!
