Laughter helps you detach from daily life struggles; while humour allows a compassionate curiosity to take hold of your circumstances.
Through play, fun and laughter you observe life in a calm unattached way and you begin to see life differently, in a more hopeful and carefree way.
In this detached mind frame you are ready to look beneath the surface, chose your response and see a feeling and situation differently. Thoughts and feeling become merely just a parade to observe and emotional centerdedness results.
Most people cling to their problems at all costs, such that happiness isn't normal. We are more likely to be critical and cling to obsessive negativeness than to freely accept emotions, thoughts and observations.
As a humorous motivational speaker, I love to see the effects of laughter on an audience. Through laughter, Individuals start to take themselves lightly and enter into a more playful mindset.
The experience of play is mindful; as it puts you in the present moment where you feel most alive. The added benefit is that playfulness boosts your immune response and is responsible for a whole host of other positive health benefits.
