Unlock Your Inner Joy: Laughing Your Way to a Happier You

Greetings to all with our smiling faces. Welcome to a program focused on well-being and joy from a step towards health. Today, we will meditate joyfully with all our hearts.

You might wonder why we laugh and how to meditate while laughing, but laughter doesn’t need a reason. You may recall our previous article, “Life Without Laughter,” where we discussed the importance of laughter. We mentioned that there is no one like us, and we will all laugh because we are unique, and God has not repeated anyone. In this world, we are one of a kind. Today, we will give you another reason to laugh.

Now, you will have two reasons, and more reasons will be given in the upcoming episodes. Today, you are becoming the richest person in the world. Everyone says they don’t have this or that, but today you will say, “There is no one as rich as me in this world.” Imagine if the richest person in the world came and asked for both your kidneys, saying, “I will transfer all my wealth to your name.” Would you give them your kidneys? No. Think about how fortunate you are to have been given all these things. Laugh with the thought that God has made you so lucky.

So, dear friends, laugh, and let your neighbors know that you are laughing. Close your eyes, laugh heartily, and feel the joy spreading throughout your body. Thank God for giving you two valuable eyes, kidneys, and many precious things in your body. Laugh with your heart open, so much that your stomach and cheeks ache. Laugh at yourself and laugh from the heart. The essence of yoga is to laugh at oneself. Today, we laugh because we have two eyes, and without these eyes, the world means nothing. People laugh at others, but we need to laugh at ourselves. Dive into yourself. Be grateful to God for providing us with kidneys, eyes, and many invaluable things in our bodies.

Now, let’s practice laughing meditation.

How to Practice Laughing Meditation:

  1. Find a comfortable position, such as sitting in a relaxed posture like Sukhasana, Padmasana, or on a chair or sofa in a comfortable position. Place your hands on your knees.
  2. Close your eyes and relax your body.
  3. Open your lips and mouth wide, and start laughing loudly. At first, it might feel like fake laughter, but with practice, it will become more natural.
  4. Let your laughter spread throughout your entire body. Move your face, neck, chest, and stomach with your laughter. Let your laughter come from the heart.
  5. Laugh continuously for 10-15 minutes.
  6. After that, open your eyes and return to a normal sitting position.


  • Psychological Benefits: Laughing meditation can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also boost self-esteem and self-love.
  • Physical Benefits: Laughing meditation may help lower blood pressure, enhance the immune system, and alleviate pain.

Tips for Laughing Meditation:

  • Laugh at yourself: The best way to practice laughing meditation is to laugh at yourself. Accept the diversities and imperfections of your body and laugh at them.
  • Let your laughter be natural: Initially, your laughter may seem artificial, but as you practice, it will become more natural. Don’t try to suppress it; let it flow.
  • Practice regularly: To maximize the benefits of laughing meditation, practice it regularly.

So, dear friends, keep laughing and smiling. Always laugh at yourself instead of laughing at others. Never compromise your happiness in any situation because we don’t know about the next moment. With this, may your lives be filled with laughter, playfulness, and joy.
