I would love to have you JOY-in me as I laugh daily for 21 days beginning Saturday, July 1st!
21 Days of Laughter
begins July 1st!
What are the rules for 21 Days of Laughter? There are no rules silly, this is all about laughter & play! ;) But to JOY-in me please sign-up by following the link and selecting Daily Laugh Challenge from the Event list. You will be provided access to a private Facebook group and YouTube Playlist.
My goals are to laugh & breath at least 10 minutes a day, to share this with my community & offer my support. Results-wise, I am hoping to keep my overall mood positive and help reduce pain. There has been a lot of stress in my life recently and a lot of changes, including help to care for my elderly father. Laughing is one of my favorite ways to manage stress and overwhelm, but I can just as easily "forget" in the midst of the chaos that often comes with life.
Connecting daily to my laughter, my breath and my community keeps me grounded, positive and in forward motion.
I also have larger, long-term goals to fully engage in life and offer my gifts. I have struggled with lack of connection and depression in the past. This can easily creep back in... But now I love sharing what works for me! I believe that we choose the meaning we assign things and that we are here to teach what we ourselves most need to learn.
Other benefits that may grace my experience are increased ease with play, with video taping myself!! and a blossoming of my creative spirit - which is foreshadowing for my newest offering coming this fall! Stay tuned.
You may jump in and start laughing 10 minutes or more a day. Or you may set your goal to work up to 10 minutes slowly over the 21 days. Science shows that we begin to get health benefits when laughing heartily and breath deeply for at least 10 minutes. If you are completely new to the idea of laughing for no reason then you can start with a smaller goal if that feels right. The choice is yours. There is no judgement. I want to meet you exactly where you are.
One of the benefits of doing this in a group is accountability and connection. Sign up via the link below for the e-list and choose Daily Laugh Challenge under Events. Once you receive the initial email follow the links to join the Facebook Group and/or bookmark the special 21 Days of Laughter YouTube Playlist that you will receive in your email. Videos will be posted on YouTube (almost daily) and also linked on Facebook. You only need access to YouTube to follow along. The interactive group on FB is awesome, but optional. Once you are connected post in FB or comment one of the YouTube videos and let the laughter community know your goal! Whether it is to get in a little chuckle each day or to learn to laugh until you can no longer hold your pee! I would love to hear your goal & the results you crave, so I can support you along the way.
