A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

The healing power of laughter

“When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, ‘Did you sleep good?’ I said ‘No, I made a few mistakes.'”

– Steven Wright

Have you had a good belly aching laugh lately? Laughter is known to have many benefits including: lowering stress, lowering blood pressure, releasing good chemicals throughout our bodies, and helping us to not take ourselves too seriously.

Try this laughter meditation: at least once a day, laugh for a full 2 minutes. Whether you feel like laughing or not- just do it.

See how that makes you feel after wards.

The more we laugh, the more joyful and centered we will become. Then we will be more likely to have more restful nights of sleep.

So laugh. Ha! Ha! Ha!!!!! ; ) LOL!!!
