Each day brings new challenges, but some challenges are good for our emotional, mental or physical growth. Look at challenges in the same way a child plays a game by learning and doing your best.

It's true - Life is not always fair, but we have to pick ourselves up and get over our bumps an bruises. The sooner we learn and recover from falling down, the better off we will be.

Anything of true value is priceless. Our family, friends, and good health are worth more than a treasure chest.

Our relationship with what is beyond our body and mind as individuals is the essence of spirituality. It is a beautiful relationship that one can achieve with an unseen source (divine) that is the cause of life and death. To many, spirituality is a very close inner journey.

Why do some people seem more vulnerable to life's tensions than others? Among other reasons from the list, lack of adequate exercise and out of touch with spirituality play a role. In the short term, yoga embedded with spirituality can be a powerful painkiller. It has been associated with a more pronounced response to peace of mind in life.

From the perspective of a yoga teacher, spirituality is experienced by being aware of the present and applying the same state of mind deep into daily life (the minute details of being). According to Paulji: "It is a step-by-step journey to experience self-realization in the end." Once the understanding between real world and the world beyond the self is made, the knowledge attained is allowed to permeate into everyday lives.

Although there are many types of yogic methodology, Hatha yoga has been described by Jon Kabat-Zinn in his book called 'Full Catastrophe Living' as the one that includes meditation with stress reduction. This concept has spread across the rest of the world as a basis for a mindfulness-based yoga training program. Yoga means "union "in Sanskrit, which translates to a union between the mind and the body.

In addition to stress relief, there are many other purposes for yogic methods, including loosening up the body muscles and preparing the entire system ready for postures that need to be sustained for long periods. One can access spirituality through meditation and asana practice. Formal practice of spirituality is the act of letting go of all the actions that one is consumed with and establishing oneself in a particular body posture for a long period of time for the purpose of cultivating prana and a non-judgmental awareness.

Elizabeth Gilbert in her book "Eat, Pray, Love" notes that yoga is all about mastering the self and dedicating the body and the mind to a moment where one can stop worrying about the past, present, and the future, and immerse into a place of eternal presence to regard oneself and the present surroundings with grace. By moving body through asanas, combined with the essence of spirituality, one can possess the ability to move far more than predictable at the moment.

Laughter Yoga is a new exercise phenomena based on laughing and Yogic-breathing exercises called pranayama. Many of the major television networks have done pieces on Laughing Yoga because it is such an effective way to revitalize the entire system of the practitioner. Participating in these sessions has even been shown to have cardiovascular benefits. Some say, the equivalent benefit of thirty minutes of aerobic exercise in as little as ten minutes of light-hearted, laughing fun.

The stated mission of Laughter Yoga is to encourage joy, happiness, peace and good mental and physical health for everyone throughout the world. There are over 6,000 free Laughter Yoga clubs in the world today. Laughing Yoga classes are facilitated by certified teachers who have been trained in the method. Practitioners gather together daily or weekly to laugh, make friends and practice ancient Yogic breathing exercises. The classes are absolutely free and open to all. Many Laughter Yogis and Yoginis find the method to be so uplifting and exhilarating, they have not missed a daily class in several years.

A typical session is initiated by “play-acting” real laughter. Soon enough, real laughter begins to sweep through the group as the energy rises and the funniness of the situation strikes the participants. Laughter is often contagious. Just attending a humorous Yoga session can shift the mood of a dour participant. In fact, scientists have determined that the body cannot tell the difference between real and fake laughter. These findings suggest that just participating in a session, even if a participant is not truly “feeling” the laughter, will give an individual the same physical and emotional benefits as real laughter.

An Indian physician from Mumbai, India by the name of Dr. Madan Kataria developed Laughter Yoga. The first club session was held outside at a local park in his neighborhood in 1996 with only a handful of participants. The feelings of lightness, happiness and exhilaration so impressed the participants, they told their family and friends about Laughing Yoga. Laughter Yoga classes are now held in over sixty countries worldwide. Laughing Yoga sessions are now being introduced as a therapeutic tool into schools, prisons, business meetings, hospitals and senior centers. Laughter Yoga Clubs are run by volunteers and are not affiliated with any political or religious group of any kind. The clubs are often free and open to all.

Procrastination stalls progress in life. Many great ideas have been stored away in the back of brilliant minds, old desks, computers, and dusty book shelves. There will never be a perfect time to move forward, but move forward we must.
