You feel an adult meltdown approaching, either your own or your mates. A quick trip to the Center isn’t feasible. How to deal? Try some laughter. Seriously. Laughter therapy is gaining credence as a solution to life’s daily stresses. It’s a great emotional release with a positive physical outcome. The brain cannot decipher between a forced hearty chuckle and a sincere fit of giggles. Next time you’re in a tense situation, or just going through your day on autopilot: stop, breathe, and laugh. It certainly can’t hurt. And, it’s one contagion that feels good to spread.
