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 for real or just faking it. It’s been said that: ‘even if there is nothing to laugh about in your life, laugh on credit!’
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!
