124 & 125 - World Laughter Day and Laughing Club

The first day of May is World Laughter day and is celebrated by people in stadiums, fields, streets, parks, and places we can't even imagine! If you want more information, you can go to laughteryoga.org. Laughing clubs were started in India and have spread in wonderful ways to lots of countries everywhere, including the United States.

The Laughing Club of N.E. Ohio is inviting everyone (and their pets) to form a huge laughing circle this Sunday, May 1 at Hardesty Park, which is almost at the corner of N. Hawkins and W. Market St. The festivities will begin at 3 p.m. -- rain or shine.

Laughter is great for your overall health and well-being. It is good for your heart, lungs, and reduces blood pressure. Endorphins are released when you laugh that make you feel good, and laughter is energizing. Fake laughter gives you the same benefits as real laughter! There are many more benefits of laughter, and the best way to discover them is to experience a lot of laughter, especially with other people who are laughing!

The Laughing Club of N. E. Ohio meets every Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Cuyahoga Falls Library - 2015 Third St., Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44221.
