Oprah On Happiness, Laugh Yoga, With Some YouTube Videos. Generally, A Lot Of Funny Stuff. — by Catherine Morgan

I happened to catch the Oprah show a few days ago, I thought the topic was very interesting. I was “How Happy Are You?” There was even a quick little test you could take. The truth is, I almost turned off the show at this point (and it was the beginning). The test was 5 questions, it seemed to me to focus quite a bit on the “material” aspect of a persons life, and it is my belief that this has very little to do with true happiness. The funny thing is; I’m actually working on a post I intend to call “Happiness is in your Soul, not your Circumstance”, I guess that is why this show had appealed to me in the first place.

Anyway, I stuck it out, and I’m glad I did. There was one part of the show where an employee of Oprah’s talked about how he went to a “Laugh Yoga” class. This is what really caught my eye, and this is what I will be posting on today.

I have included three YouTube videos on the subject of Laugh Yoga. It seems really strange at first…..but it really makes a lot of sense. There is actually quite a bit of medical evidence proving the benefits of laughter. The laugh yoga might be for you, or it might not be….But, I also included a handful of funny videos, for the people who just want to have a little private laugh.

I hope you enjoy, and have a happy day! :smile:

  26. Yeah, that laugh yoga is really creepy. I would much rather watch some old Three Stooges or some new Simpsons.

    I think you only benefit from laughter if you actually find something worth laughing about, not if you merely force air in and out- that sounds more like hard (noisy) breathing.

  27. It seems a bit creepy to me too…..but they say when you are doing it in a group you really end up laughing, and that it isn’t really a forced laugh. That is why I included a few funny videos…..just in case the forced laugh thing isn’t up your alley…..but I guess not everyone would find the videos funny either. I guess I’ll go ahead and add a Three Stooges just for you…..now you can’t say I never do anything for you. Hope you like.

  28. Nothing like good ol’ fashioned infliction of pain for laugh.

    BTW if I ever want to endure forced laughter with a small group of people I will just go watch an Adam Sandler movie…oh snap!

    Hi there, Catherine… How you be? I came here and answered on your Al Gore topic… and had found your site via my friend’s ERRANTMIND blog site… So,then, THIS IS OFF TOPIC but I can’t see how I can send you a private message… I saw a comment you made recently on the ErrantMind blog about the value of blogs (and I see that you have made some great changes here on this site and that you’ve joined another one that I am sort of eying)… I am a COMPLETE novice as well and have similar questions to the ones you posed and am sure a million other similar ones… I would love to have someone to bounce things off of with regard to set up (and traffic movement and monitoring etc.) and to share my own discoveries with particuarly because we seem to be at the same entry level at the same time AND we both seem to like a lot of the same topics (the latter of which is not necessary to helping one another along with this blog stuff but is still rather nice)… may I contact you directly to discuss this further?…I’ll check back here tomorrow to see if you can let me know how to do so and that’d be great; otherwise, if you like, I’ll leave my e-mail address here, something I would rather not do if I do not have to, as you can understand… Anyway, in the meantime, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I LOVE your topics; they are quite in sync with my own thoughts and interests, as I have mentioned before… You’re doing a terrific job! Honestly!

    Take care,
    Stephanie

  30. Hi Stephanie,

    Can you give me a link to your blog? Then I can send you my (info.) and you can just delete it off once you get it.

    Thanks,
    Catherine.

    Hey there! I only registered with the WORDPRESS on Saturday and I have not yet had the chance to properly set up the page… but, actually, this morning, I thought of a different tactic to correspond in that I just opened up a Yahoo account that is separate from my regular Yahoo account, i.e.,

    bloggingstuff @ yahoo.com

    (all without spaces, of course; I first chose blogstuff but it was already taken!!)

    I’ll send you my wordpress blogsite via that e-mail as soon as I set it up a bit more.

    Thanks!

    Stephanie
