How laughter can lighten your workday
Growing up, “Readers Digest” was always in our home.  I especially loved “Laughter is the Best Medicine” segments.  After reading these short articles, I was usually smiling.

Working with my “Type A” personality, I’ve explored lot of ways to chill out, take a step back and lighten up.   Helpful items on the list include:

watching comedies
relaxation techniques
— meditation to chanting
— deep breathing
— singing or dancing

Now, scientists appear to be taking notice of our collective need to lighten up.  More studies are underway to explain why some of these modalities actually help.

Anyone tried laughter yoga?  What are some of your favorite stress buster techniques?
