Daily Laughers – Be One In a Million in 2016

Posted by:

Happy New Year, dear reader, and may your 2016 be filled with good health and abundant joy!

One thing that supports both of those goals is laughing, even on purpose without any jokes or humor. You may already be aware that “unconditional laughter” is the premise of the global health craze called laughter yoga. This is central to the book I co-wrote last year with Kelley T.

Making Your Laughter Quota

Posted by:

What’s your laughter quota? How often do you meet it? I doubt you really set such a goal and neither do I. But I do know the more I laugh the better I feel.

Reward Yourself

Posted by:

Do you prefer carrot or stick? Do you move toward pleasure or away from pain? Maybe it depends on the situation.
