It is so easy to get caught up in the seriousness that life can bring. We are very serious about our families and our jobs, our bodies and even our spirituality can become ever so serious. The easiest way to lighten up this energy is laughter. Laughter releases us from the grips of fear and raises our energy. It clears away negativity, confusion, and mental chatter, and brings us effortlessly into the present moment

And almost always I have seen people doing just the wrong thing. From the very early morning they get out of bed complaining, tired, gloomy, sad, depressed, miserable; predicting the intensity or burdensome experience of their day yet to come. Then one thing leads to another and this misery is projected into their moments, these early morning waking moments can set the pattern for the entire day.  When we embrace a practice like a laughter meditation, we accept the responsibility for our own moods. We no longer have an excuse for our misery. When we really dive into the laughter, the mind can disappear into the experience of pure joy. When we really embrace this practice, it is both energizing and relaxing, and acts as an emotional detox, flushing all of our problems away.

Laughter Meditation given by Osho:
Every morning before waking up, before opening your eyes, stretch like a cat. Stretch every fiber of the body. Enjoy the movement.  After three or four moments with eyes still closed, begin to laugh. You don’t have to have a reason at all to laugh, just laugh! At first you will be doing it, but soon the sound of your attempt will cause genuine laughter. Lose yourself in laughter. It make take several days before it really happens, but before long it will be spontaneous and will change the whole nature of your day.
