SINCE LIFE is GENERALLY 10% WHAT HAPPENS to US and 90% HOW WE RESPOND to IT,
I believe there is a constant need to keep a sense of humor and laugh out loud every day! LAUGHTER YOGA is a great technique to help you laugh even when you don’t think anything is funny, don’t feel like laughing, or are especially in need of a way to make yourself feel better!
I love travelling, taking photographs, walking, laughing, reading, writing, plants, and being creative in any of the arts. Dark chocolate is also important. I have lived in 4 states and visited 20 countries, including Bulgaria, where I created and ran a cultural exchange program for high school students for 8 years.
I care about being healthy and enjoy coaching others about eliminating stress in their lives, being more playful, and staying focused on the present. The most important thing I ever did was having children and I love to laugh with my family.
What’s great about Laughter Yoga is that you get all the health benefits whether you are laughing spontaneously or intentionally. It’s been said that: ‘even if there is nothing to laugh about in your life, laugh on credit!’
