Attorneys New Stress Management Program

Laughter Yoga Helps Lawyers Destress

Wednesday, 12 September 2012 12:48

Here is an interesting article on Laughter Lawyers, an innovative concept, created by Jackie Curran, ex- lawyer and now one of Australia’s foremost leaders on laughter. She trains lawyers around the world to laugh and lighten up as the profession is extremely stressful.

Speaking at a recently held, ‘Laugh, Breathe, Relax’ workshop, in Sydney Jackie told attendees about how she left a high-stress career in the law to become a Laughter Yoga instructor. Laughter is a powerful tool for dissolving stress, which will improve the experience of being a lawyer, she said.

While Curran admitted that “laughter isn’t the answer to everything”, she believes lawyers can enjoy a happier working life through Laughter Yoga. “We can transform how we feel and how we deal with life,” she said. “Laughter is a way to switch off from work and clients … we take on a lot of responsibility and anything we can do to lift that off for a while is a good thing.”

Referring to her own experience of Laughter Yoga, she added that: “Laughter changed my emotional state … so that I found myself getting back to a place of happiness much faster than I used to when I was a serious lawyer.”

The workshop saw the female-dominated group engage in a number of laughing exercises, including speaking in gibberish. Curran suggested the nonsensical dialogue is “how we sound to clients when we’re giving legal advice”, which prompted an outburst of laughter.

“Laughter is a natural anti-depressant,” she said. “It also has physical benefits as it relaxes muscles, which can relieve pain.” Curran also pointed out that 100 laughs are the equivalent of a 10-minute workout on a rowing machine.

When asked whether more women attend her workshops than men, Curran said it depends on the forum. “Most of the time it’s more women but, interestingly, at sessions I’ve done at law conferences, men outnumbered women.”

“Laughter is a form of internal jogging.  It moves your internal organs around.  It enhances respiration.  It is an igniter of great expectations.”
–Norman Cousins

In Laughter Yoga Clubs, Laughter is joyfully simulated in a group with full body laughter exercises/games and childlike playfulness. The “simulated” laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter that lifts our spirits and carries over into our every day lives.

Attend a live local Laughter Yoga Class at Atlanta – Laughter – Yoga.

Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between laughter exercises and real laughter. Anyone can Laugh for No Reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy and get the same physiological and psychological benefits (boosts immune system, releases endorphins, increases oxygen intake, decreases stress hormones, creates a joyful connection with others, and enables you to laugh more easily at life’s travails).

*Always consult your doctor before staring any exercise program. 🙂

Laughter Yoga Alone 2

Applications of Laughter Yoga Alone

Dr. Madan Kataria

Laughter Yoga Alone is a great way of releasing stress and negative thoughts. It is a very useful technique to dissipate anger and helps focus on meditative activity. It also helps develop self -confidence as it reduces shyness and inhibitions.It helps to deal with minor irritations that come across our way in daily lives. Broken vending machines, traffic jams, rude teenagers, long queues in supermarket can cause major stress reactions. Learning to laugh alone helps to face these ‘free floating anxieties’ in a much positive way.

It not only helps to communicate with others effectively but also creates a safe environment for others to connect with you and come closer. This goes a long way in achieving success in business, personal and social life.

Calcutta Laughter When The Mind Is In Turmoil

We have one such exercise called Calcutta Laughter which is not exactly laughter but a series of chants of ho ho ha ha with intense hand movements. It is a very effective catharsis to release the emotional energy. It stimulates the diaphragm and activates the para- sympathetic nervous system, which is the opposite of stress arousal sympathetic system.

  • Bring your hands in front of you chest with palms facing outwards
  • Push your hands in a jerky manner, saying the syllables Ho Ho twice. This moves the abdominal muscles and the diaphragm.
  • While pushing your hands downwards to the ground in a jerky manner say ha ha.
  • Do ho ho ha ha aggressively moving your hands in different directions. Keep doing it intensely for one or two minutes and then take a few deep breaths and feel the relaxation.
  • If the intensity of emotions is very high do it for five minutes with breathing breaks in between.

This is a very energizing exercise especially at times like appearing for an interview or any other anxious situation. This is also called laughter boosting.

Laughing Alone In The Bathroom

The bathroom provides for privacy and safety. You can be as funny as you want to and have no fear of anyone watching. Regular laughing while having a shower gets programmed into the body. The moment you turn the tap on, you will start laughing automatically. This is the benefit of repeating any activity and combining physical behavior and with it.

Walking And Laughing

While walking alone, you can find a safe place and laugh at the top of your voice and experience the feel of freedom.

Laughing In The Car

Laughing Alone exercises can be very effectively used during trying times on the road with traffic snarl-up and other daily irritants. Instead of losing patience you can laugh away these situations and change your feelings. You can do the ho ho ha ha exercise without any sound. It all depends upon your level of comfort as you might be aware of other people watching you laughing. You can also pick up your mobile phone and pretend to laugh for a few minutes.

Laugh At Your Own Self – Ha Ha Mantra

Laughing at your own self is not about degrading but is a gentle reminder that life is serious and we must take ourselves lightly in order to keep our spirits high.

Instead of laughing you can just say haaaaa haaaaa haaaaa a few times and it will make you feel good.  It will change negative perspective of the situation. I always use this Ha ha mantra when I mess up something or drop food on my shirt or when something falls from my hands.

Ha Ha Mantra For Free Floating Hostilities

Our lives are flooded with innumerable situations that give rise to irritability and stress. We call them ‘free floating hostilities’ as they are freely available everywhere. These infuriating situations bring a big change in your temperament and attitude.

The best substitute for these hostilities is Ha Ha Manta. Every time you find such a situation you will remember doing haaaaaa haaaaaa haaaaaa.. and it will protect you from getting into a bad mood.

Laughing With Household Chores

You can laugh while doing repetitive household chores like washing dishes, mopping floor, vacuum cleaning, hanging clothes, cleaning windows and many others. This is not a loud laughter but a gentle giggle which will help to change your perspective towards mundane chores and will make them less daunting.
