Top Tips for Health + Wellbeing

Have a laugh, Do Some Yoga or Why not Combine The Two!

You can stop stress in its tracks with a laugh. Just thinking about laughing can start a chain reaction in your body that reduces the stress hormones cortisol, adrenaline and dopac.   By thinking of things that make us laugh, we can do a lot with physiology to stay well.

Yoga puts the body in a state of deep rest, known to yogis as the relaxation response. Researchers now believe that same response can change how our genes behave for the better when we are faced with stress. They believe that during relaxation, oxygen intake reduces, we exhale more nitric oxide and psychological stress levels drop.
