World laughter Day is Celebrated Every Year on the First Sunday of May Across the World

The main motto of celebrating this day is to raise awareness about laughter and its benefits.

Several community groups known as Laughter clubs practice simple laughter techniques to promote wellness and wellbeing. Some events are organized by these groups to educate people regarding the benefits of laughing and also to build up the feeling of brotherhood and friendship among the people all over the world.

The celebration of this day was initiated by Dr Madan Kataria in the year 1998 in Mumbai who was also the founder of World Yoga Day. According to his ideology, one’s facial expressions have a deep effect on his feelings and emotions.

What is Laughter day? Do we need to celebrate it?

Laughter day is a special day dedicated to spread happiness across the world. Did you hear a famous quote - “A day without laughter is a day wasted”. It is believed that among all the emotions that humans have, laughter is the strongest and the most powerful emotion as it has the power of healing. It can change the mental state of a person and it also spreads the feeling of positivity. Based on these facts the world laughter day came into existence.

Laugh – The way of expressing the happiness of the heart. It is considered as a universal vocabulary that everyone understands. Even before speaking, people start to smile. Even though one doesn’t know the language, he can express his feelings through a smile. It is one of the best feelings that bring cheer and positive vibes to anyone. Humans first laugh at the age of 3 to 4 months. Similar to crying, laughing is one way of interaction of babies with his/her mother. Children laugh more when compared to that of adults. A child of 6 to 7 years of age laughs almost three times more than an adult.

When you look at a stranger and smile, it spreads the positivity between you and him. It is said that a smile is a signal that one person gives to another person in order to say that the person wishes to connect with the other one.

There are many reasons for a person to laugh. Generally, we laugh when routine things happen in an unusual way. The impact of laughing on our body will be more when a person laughs in a group rather than laughing when he is watching a comedy movie alone. Scientists have proved that people who laugh more can live an energetic and healthy life. They have a long life when compared to that of people who laugh less. On an average, a person laughs about 13 times in a day. The interesting fact is that not only humans, even animals like dogs, cats and monkeys also laugh.

Importance of World Laughter Day:

Life is uncertain. Nobody knows what happens to us tomorrow. One’s life is filled with work stress, worries and responsibilities. Being happy for a single day does not reduce a person’s worries or a person’s responsibilities. But celebrating laughter day once a year helps us to forget all our problems and be happy for one day and it is an occasion to spread the positivity and hope that despite many problems, one can still be happy. It is very important that we should experience the happiness and joy in life with what we have, even though we are surrounded by worries and many responsibilities.

The best message that the world laughter day teaches us is – we need to have a positive approach towards life; keeping our ego, hatred, jealous, depression and all other negative feelings away. Our life is like a water bubble we do not know when it ends. So we need to be happy and spread happiness to others in the span of our life.

 History of World Laughter Day:

 The first laughter day event took place in Mumbai, India on 11th of January, 1998.  Around 12,000 members including local and international laughter clubs joined together in this enormous laughter session. The first laughter day “Happy-demic” was conducted (outside India) in Copenhagen, Denmark. More than 10,000 people gathered in this event. As it was the largest gathering, this event was recorded in the Guinness Book. 

What do people do on the world laughter day?

 On this day many laughter clubs conduct programs like a peace March to spread the awareness of the laughter day. They also conduct entertainment programs that include dance, music and laughter contests to cheer up and motivate the people who are not happy with themselves or the people who are depressed in life. People distribute pamphlets and put up banners across the streets or public places and auditoriums to bring awareness among the people regarding the significance of laughter in our lives and give suggestions to the people to reduce stress from daily work.

On this day people gather in parks or public places and share funny moments or incidents and also perform laughing yoga practice. This day is spent well by spreading the message of joy and well-being. Nowadays many stand-up comedy shows and laughter challenge shows have been conducted by television channels.

Benefits of Laughing:

 Reduces Stress: Laughing reduces stress, anger, fear, jealous, hate and helps to improve our relationships with the people. It eases our anxiety and tension. Laughter also promotes our creativity.

Improves health: People who laugh more will have more antibodies. Antibodies help in improving the body immune system and resistance power towards the diseases. Antibodies also keeps the person stress relieved, energetic and helps in improving both physical and mental health of that person.

Gives relaxation: When you laugh loudly by opening your mouth completely, it gives exercise and relaxation to the muscles in the face, stomach.

Burns Calories: Laughing 100 times equal to doing cycling for 15 min and laughing for 15 min continuously can reduce 30-40 calories.

Heals damaged cells: Laughing increases the percentage of oxygen in the body. So it is said that laughing can heal the body cells that are damaged due to cancer.

Protects the heart: Laughing improves the flow of blood in the blood vessels thus improving the functionality of the heart. It also helps in reducing the chances of heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

Releases endorphins: Laughing for a couple of minutes releases endorphins in the body which plays a major role in reducing the stress and also relieving pain temporarily.

Laughter is the best medicine. So Laugh more to live a Happier and Longer Life.
