Laughter Yoga for Seniors
Adds More Laughter to Life:
As we grow older, we laugh less and less. Because of dementia and
Alzheimer’s disease, seniors often times can’t get jokes or find
anything funny. This is because humor is mental and cognitive
phenomena. Therefore, Laughter Yoga is a great form of exercise
and seniors can get multiple health benefits from it.
Promotes Physical Health:
As we grow older because of wear and tear most seniors have many
ailments like high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and other
diseases of aging. Laughter Yoga helps in healing from illnesses by
strengthening immune system, increasing oxygen to the body cells
and bringing a positive mental state.
Supports Good Mental Health:
Many seniors suffer from depression, frustration and anger. As they
lose loved ones and their health, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain a positive mental attitude. Laughter Yoga supports good mental health regardless of their circumstances.
Increased Social Connection:
Laughter Yoga allows for strong social bonding with friends, relatives, fellow residents at care facilities as well as care givers and medical personnel. This development of friendship decreases loneliness and increases quality of life.
