They are probably humble about it, as most funny people are. They probably don't act like people who have the ability to heal us to save us. They probably don't even realize they are so special, so meaningful.
By reviving blood circulation and increasing oxygenation of the blood, laughter is considered to be a powerful ally in the fight against heart disease.
In his study , he reported that meditation has the capacity to reduce “chronic psychological stress and its symptoms, along with enhancing well-being and wellness.”
One of the remarkable things about laughter is that it occurs unconsciously. You don’t decide to do it. While we can consciously inhibit it, we don’t consciously produce laughter. That’s why it’s very hard to laugh on command or to fake laughter. (Don’t take my word for it: Ask a friend to laugh on the spot.)
Forget about the Nordic countries, who've consciously abandoned their own languages for English — their languages were never important to begin with. When I lived in France, I found it impossible to communicate with the kids from Italy, China, Japan, and Mexico in anything other than French. Nor was English an option when I traveled to Poland and the Czech Republic.
Laughter has many emotional benefits. When you laugh your mind is in bliss. While you are laughing it’s impossible for you to be able to concentrate on anything negative. You can’t feel bad, sad, angry or anxious when you laugh. A simple way to describe it, laughter makes you feel good. As any student of the law of attraction knows, feeling good raise your vibrations and high vibrations bring more positive things into your life.
According to Provine, there is some historical evidence that tickling was used as a method of torture and execution in centuries past. In one reported and exceedingly bizarre technique, a victim was tied up and the soles of his feet were covered with salt. A goat was then brought in to lick the salt, causing intense tickling. If kept up for long enough, the stress and exertion of laughing -- and squirming -- could have eventually brought on cardiac arrest or a brain hemorrhage.
To be sure, it's a little heavy handed for a foreign government to be attempting to quasi-infiltrate another country's education system.
If you're reading this, we probably don't need to spell out all the socioeconomic benefits that come with learning a second language. We again assume America's natural inclination is to learn Spanish (we'll exclude Chinese). Since French and Spanish are the mutant step children of Latin, you can practically cut out a step if you ever decide to take up Spanish. And If you already know Spanish, it requires very little effort to make the jump to French.
I mean, the majority of the sh*t I say – or write, for that matter – is so tongue in cheek that you'd be shocked I could even pronounce words correctly.
