Sunday 7th May 2022 is World Laughter Day – an annual event on the first Sunday in May – it’s not “just” laughter as in a giggle – it’s deep belly laughter. Simulated which soon becomes genuine – with all the benefits this brings.
This significant day was started in the year 1998 by the founder of Laughter Yoga, Dr Madan Kataria.
All over the world on this day, communities join together to celebrate their connection and joy with laughter, sending out positive vibrations of unconditional kindness, love, and compassion.
Laughter is a universal language – it connects us with people from different cultures and countries. With the practice of Laughter Yoga we are creating a worldwide community of caring and sharing people who believe in unconditional love, kindness and compassion.
Serious Laughter offers a special free-of-charge online session on this day (see our Eventbrite page).
We all know we feel better after a good laugh, don’t we?
Did you also know that the purpose of World Laughter Day is to create a happier, healthier and more peaceful world to live in. Laughter also creates inner peace – within yourself (the most popular words shared after our Laughter Yoga sessions are “calm”, light and zen) – and peace in social situations, communities, and work.
There are many health benefits to the deep-rooted form of laughter, Laughter Yoga, including the release of positive chemicals, lowering stress levels, releasing natural painkillers, boosting your immune system, improving heart health, lowering blood pressure, and being a great social connection wellbeing tool.
