Take A # 21 Days Smile Challenge

Heya ,

Greetings . . .

Lavanya Da Babe here... lol

I got so excited and I  had such a deep revelation in the first day of my smile challenge that   I had to write this article !!

 Listen  :)

what just happened yesterday. So, I was reading this book  by Norman Cousins - Anatomy of an illness .  The author spoke of his  nurse making him laugh and how he felt a shift in the join pain inflammation.  For some reason  I wanted to  experiment it as well. I chose to smile for 15 minutes . I have flat feet and  I am currently becoming slim.... get the point.... So basically, whenever I walk of workout my right ankle hurts .  But, yesterday something weird happened! When I smiled for 15 minutes straight  the pain  I had vanished!!!!   Ironically enough in the book guess what  did I read today morning.... come... see....

"In the first chapter, I wrote about the ability of

laughter to reduce the inflammation in my joints,

confirmed by a reduction in the sedimentation rate

both sustained and cumulative. Did this mean that

laughter stimulated the endorphins? An interesting

experiment in this direction was undertaken by a Japanese doctor in Tokyo, who incorporated laughter

into the treatment of tuberculous patients. The ac- count of the experiment said that he was able to demonstrate to his own satisfaction that laughter was therapeutic and figured in the improvement of his

patients. "

The Book is   "Anatomy  Of An Illness" by Norman Cousins!

hmmmmmm so some  benefits of  smiling :D

1 - Heals Inflammation when does on regular basis.

2  - Diffuses negative words  inside mind not in  others  mouth lol...

Try this now -"Say, I am  fat or ugly in your mind " while faking a smile.... keep smiling while saying it.... it will diffuse the  negative words!!!! yes yes.

So, if your brain doesn't know how to shut up the crap inner dialoguing  just smile for 15 minutes not only will with shut up.   You will  also feel physically better.

3 -   Pain is not your enemy but your  friend.  Its body's  way of communicating  and bringing    your attention to the physical and spiritual cause of the pain .

4 -   Dr.  Lee Berk of Loma   Linda University in California (USA), which showed that  regular laughter reduced stress and had a positive impact on the immune system.

5 -    It makes you look like a pleasant person and  approachable.   Meaning  more people to move around with.

6 -   I remember  I learnt a visualization  few years back where they said to visualize    all seven major glands smiling. I think it  was part of  SUJOK SMILE THERAPY.    Finally it comes down to one thing our subconcious can be fooled just by faking a smile.

7 - Just few days ago  I wrote an article on increasing your vibration. In the article  I discussed  about how every human emotion has been measured in frequencies. The frequency of  love is  500 where as the frequency of Joy is  540! Just imagine joy is  a higher frequency than   love.  The faking a smile may not fix your broken  life but it sure has the capability to calm you down and help you think straight. Meanwhile it was also initiate healing.

8 -    I was surprised to learn that the body cannot   differentiate between real and fake laughter. It concluded that if one could not

manage a genuine laugh, one should pretend to do so. I also learnt that not only     laughter but a bodily expression of any motion generates a similar emotion in the  mind.

9 -    I am reading a  book on laughter right now and  I just read a review - the books name is  " Laughter Yoga: Daily laughter practices for health and happiness"   by Mandar Kataria its worth a read :)

"  Lotte Mikkelsen, London: I started my daily laughter practice in 2008 after I was diagnosed with

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and have not stopped laughing since. This has had a major impact on my

health with no relapses related to MS. In addition, I find that the way I deal with life in general and

with other people has become more compassionate and kind. Laughter yoga has taught me and

allowed me to express tears, playfulness and unconditional laughter without judging others and

myself.  "

this is mentioned in the book. the author also shares his ordeal of being called names  when he started the laughter clubs.

Any how we some how find it easy to ridicule ideas and things which come for free or low cost.   Its a no brainer guys look at happy kids they heal!  You can heal but you need to practice few health routines on daily basis.

10 -    Laughter is a powerful antidote to depression as it releases endorphins, or the   feel-good hormone, and increases the levels of dopamine and serotonin which    help maintain a good mood. Depressed people laugh rarely.

11  -   Look for Triorigin Smile Meditation -- it is a method of psycho emotional self-recovery and self-development that was created by Professor Park Jae Woo the founder of Su Jok.

12  -  Everything in universe is a rhythm your heart beating is a rhythm the laughter will also create harmony and rhythm.  You can combine it with a breathing exercise and after yoga you can practice laughter yoga.

13 -  In yoga****we exhale for longer than what we inhale    so as to get rid of as much residual air as possible and bring in fresh air and more    oxygen for the next breathing cycle. Have you realized what we do while    laughing? When we laugh, we exhale for much longer than in regular breathing.      Laughter while help you release unwanted air or  residual air / carbon dioxide from your lungs.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO),  millions of people suffer  from depression worldwide. It is the leading cause of disability and sickness.    Trying to cope with life’s challenges, people often find themselves alone.   With no one to talk to or share their feelings with, they sink into depression. This

despondency is growing rapidly and has become the no. 1 sickness in the world.    If you observe closely, you will find many elderly people in old-age homes who    are depressed and youngsters who find it hard to deal with their careers or   relationships. The number of suicides is on the rise and the inability to express    emotions is becoming a cause for concern.

Being a hypnotherapist and  Neuro linguistic  programming coach  I have one amazing tip for you.   Visualize    every single day   as an extended self smiling gradually your new behavior   will be formed and you will get primed for taking actions automatically.   Meanwhile also visualize people smiling no need to remind you, that, you are also a telepathic being your energy will travel to multiple places at the same time.  Read my article on visualization.

21 days will  have an impact on your brain by forming a neural pathway almost like some new memory for an action gets formed and there is a also a familiarity that gets built. Brain loves familiar things and states.  You must  practice it every day for 13 months or more.  This will ensure that it gets on an autopilot.

‘We have taken life too seriously.

Now, it’s time to take laughter seriously.’

If you don't    want to research on smile then just take a 21 days challenge !  Ensure you smile 15 mins to 2 hours daily . Eat healthy and sleep well.  Let me know what difference  did you witness.

Until  then...

 Loads of  Love and Good Health.

I am smiling while writing this article and I hope my smile reaches you too.

Love Lavanya :)
