The mood of a person can get changed while laughing heartily, is pretty well known to all. It is because of the secretion of the hormones called Endorphin. These hormones promote the feelings of wellness, euphoria, and even or result in reducing pain for some time. As the mood gets changed, one feels right.

Laughter Yoga is a form of Yoga in which breathing is an essential part. One becomes more efficient, gains strength and much better motivation to do whatever one undertakes.

Watch the children aged around 4-5 years laughing for no reason they laugh while going about their business; they laugh because it is natural. They laugh 200 to 300 times a day and do not require jokes to laugh. One does not have to work hard to make them laugh. In them, the button of laughter is the childishness. Their world is full of innocence. We can also do the same. Just like that, one has to wake up the child sitting inside. Behave like a child at least once a day. Have fun like him. One acquires qualities of caring and sharing soon. One is welcome and looked forward to by nearly all.

There is no button physically to activate the laughter, although the laughter control is in the brain. Our mind rips all kinds of emotions because it decides rationally, the pros and cons of each happening. One cannot laugh just by thinking and thinking alone.
