While browsing through the list of natural ways to deal with back pain, I came across an article that says laughter yoga can also help with this pain.
I don’t even know there was something called laughter yoga. But if you know something like this, can you please tell me more about its effectiveness.
I don’t know about the yoga piece of your question, but laughter definitely helps me. I can be having a terrible day and I force myself to go to my ladies group. We laugh, we cry, we support and encourage each other. During that hour, I forget about the pain for a while and the laughter especially helps me feel better–at least for a while.
It’s obviously not permanent, but it provides some temporary relief — and my spirits are lifted as well.
Laughter definitely helps me to deal with pain. Sometimes when I’m doing yoga I look around an laugh at how much different I seem to be moving than some of the others around me despite decades of doing yoga. I’ve never been to a laughter yoga class. I should add it to the list of things to be on the look out for near my home.
