Laughter Yoga For US Elders


Laughter is indeed the best medicine to be prescribed for seniors to keep them in good cheer. A good hearty laughter gets rid of stress, worry and depression. It touches the emotional core and alleviates feelings of loneliness and isolation. Besides being the remedy for good health, laughter generates positive thoughts and reduces the negative strains.
