Sunday, May 1st is World Laughter Day!


Did you know that the first Sunday in May is World Laughter Day?  Why devote a day to laughter?  There are incredible physical and mental benefits from laughter, such as improved breathing & blood flow, pain reduction and calorie burning! Also, laughter helps increase creativity, happiness and confidence and reduces stress.

Laughter Yoga is an offering at the DAHLC and a good way to purposefully laugh.  The session begins with playful exercises and progresses to spontaneous laughter.  You'll leave after this half-hour class feeling rejuvenated and relaxed!  Just watch the clip below from a Laughter Yoga class and join in every Friday from 12:15-12:45.  Contact kuth.amy@mayo.edu with any questions.
