Best Medicine.

Delighted to have stumbled across this enlightening feature in an old issue COLORS Magazine, which highlights the myriad health benefits of laughter, and, more specifically, something called "laughing yoga." The practice originated in India in the mid-nineties and encourages a purposeful inclusion of laughter in everyday life. 

Below, factory workers in West Delhi work with expert Jiten Kohi on exercises including "the One-Meter Laugh, which involves measuring an imaginary fabric, then bursting into laughter when it's one-meter long."

As the article states, "By the age of four, children are on average laughing 300 times per day; most adults only manage 20. Laugh more." Yes.
