First ever post from the Laugh Bug Blog

Welcome to the first ever posting from the Laugh Bug Blog (say that 3 times fast)! My name is Seia (pronounced Say-Yeah!) and I am thrilled to begin my new role for 2012: managing The Smiling Yogi website.

Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor, began to learn the scientifically proven health benefits of laughter in 1995. We all know the saying “Laughter is the best medicine” …Dr. Kataria wanted to create a delivery method for this best medicine, and that’s what happened when he developed Laughter Yoga.

Laughter is highly contagious (check out the trailer from the movie Laughology,) and like thousands of people worldwide I have not only caught the Laugh Bug, I’ve become a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, and joined Dr. Kataria’s vision to spread World Peace through Laughter.

It’s a great year to laugh and connect, so on behalf of The Smiling Yogi website and Laugh Bug Blog I will interview professionals and amateurs who have caught the Laugh Bug. We’ll share insights into this contagion and the AMAZING side effects experienced. But that’s not all, I will also share thoughts from people are newer to Laughter Yoga, who may not have caught the Laugh Bug – yet.

On the Laugh Bug Blog discover the latest and greatest Laughter Yoga insights and events.  You’ll also get some creative DIY actions based on positive psychology you can take to increase the laughter, joy and good health in your life as well as ideas on how you too can help to spread the Laugh Bug!

Are you ready for a fun year?  Check back to the Laugh Bug Blog in on Monday January 9th for the posting from my first interview. In the meantime I invite you check out The Smiling Yogi website @  and share your comments and suggestions for the website or the Laugh Bug Blog.

Seriously smiling,
