The Heart of Laughter
Share your Laughter with the world!
Practice this exercises in the morning and feel yourself fresh throughout the day.
The reason for the sense of well-being is that you inhale more oxygen while laughing. Two thirds of the lung capacity comes from abdominal breathing, which means that if you don’t use your abdomen to breathe, approximately 2/3 of the air in your lungs is stale.
Laughing repeatedly fully flushes the lungs to the full extent of their capacity, therefore bringing substantially more oxygen into the blood stream. It stands to reason therefore that as oxygen is the life line of the human body. The more you have, the better you feel.
