As it is difficult to o a laughter club everyday as it may not be in your area this is a very innovative way of practicing laughter exercises and reaping all the benefits of laughter. Many a times there is a lack of motivation and one does not feel like laughing alone. To have someone on the phone lines at times like this will make the process interesting and inspiring.
The advantage of having a laughter buddy is that in case one is busy, the other person will remind one of laughing on the line. People were initially apprehensive about telephone buddy laughter as they thought that it encroached upon their privacy, comfort zone and was a nuisance. They had written it off even before trying it out. But life doesn’t work that way. If you laugh with someone and share a lighter moment, all the privacy issues of comfort zones and inconveniences will disappear against the benefits of laughter that you will receive.
Another economical option of doing laughter yoga is through Skype. This is popular free Internet telephone service and one can laugh with anyone anywhere in the word with the added facility of webcam. All you need is to download a messenger from www.Skype.com and have broadband Internet connection and a headphone.
Skype also has to telephone connection service where 10 to 20 people can log on to Skype messenger and laugh together.
This is a beautiful way of connecting with people around the world as we have laughter clubs in more than 55 countries now. It will provide an opportunity to develop international laughter connection.
We are launching telephone laughter body project very soon through our web site.
