Lesley then goes on to outline: The scientific evidence that reveals the benefits of laughter for our health, including lowering blood pressure and improving concentration The emotional aspects of laughter and how it can alleviate anxiety, stress and depression The spiritual aspects of laughter and how it can help provide a sense of connection and wholeness Throughout the book Lesley reveals how to bring more laughter into your daily life, including practising simple but fun exercises that will help you see opportunities for laughter in the most unexpected places. She also provides case studies of individuals whose lives have been transformed by accessing the power of laughter. Lesley explains that we can all "laugh for no reason", without relying on humour, jokes or comedy. Laughter can be simulated as an exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. This is a book that will delight, as well as inform - most importantly, it will positively change your life.
