Laughter is the cure! Part 1 (Teacher: Michael)

At least nine out of every ten illnesses are caused, or at least made worse, by stress, pressure and anxiety. It seems that way we respond to problems and troubles can produce many symptoms of ill health. But although our minds can make us ill, they can also make us better and help us to stay healthy.

There are number of ways in which you can use your mind to improve your health:

1. Laugh as much as you can. Laughter is positive, natural phenomenon which helps by improving respiration, lowering blood pressure and 'toning up' heart.

2. Don't be cool or unemotional. Insurance companies in USA have shown that if wife kisses her husband before he goes to work, then he'll be less likely to have accident on road. He will, on average, live five years longer than if she doesn't give him morning kiss.

3. If you feel sad, then cry. Research has shown that tears don't just provide important stress relief valve, they help body get rid of harmful chemical wastes. If you suppress your natural instinct to cry, than you are increasing your chances of acquiring stress-related disorder.

4. Anger is killer. Diseases such as high blood pressure, strokes and heart disease are all common consequences of uncontrolled anger. Find positive way to release it, such as through physical exercise or talking about your problems.

5. lack of confidence can be very destructive, so build it up. You can do this by imagining that you are creating advertisement for yourself, writing down all your good points. You'll probably be surprised to find out how many virtues you have.
