Listen & Laugh

Why have we chosen to create a category called Listen and Laugh? Research has shown that a good laugh reduces tension and stress levels and generally elevates the way we feel both emotionally and physically. Research has also shown the healing benefits of music. But better minds than mine have said it more eloquently, so I will share their words...

Listen & Laugh

ATH Editor-in-Chief

 

 


Why have we chosen to create a category called Listen and Laugh? Research has shown that a good laugh reduces tension and stress levels and generally elevates the way we feel both emotionally and physically. Research has also shown the healing benefits of music. But better minds than mine have said it more eloquently, so I will share their words:
 
"A day without laughter is a day wasted."~Charlie Chaplin
 
"A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life."~Hugh Sidney
 
"Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand."~Mark Twain
 
"The power of music to integrate and cure... is quite fundamental. It is the profoundest nonchemical medication."~Oliver Sacks, Awakening
 
"If one should desire to know whether a kingdom is well governed, or if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music will furnish the answer."~Confucius
 
"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water-bath is to the body."~Oliver Wendell Holmes
 
With these ideas in mind, I now introduce you to our newest ATH category: Listen & Laugh. May it touch your heart and lighten your soul.

About the Author

 

Dr. Peake, our ATH Editor-in-Chief, is a teacher, author and healer. She earned her PhD in psychology with the intention of being a clinical psychologist and spent close to 20 years in private practice. However, her interest in spirituality kept taking her onto other paths--one of which involved spending six years traveling with a spiritual teacher who taught her about the use of spiritual energies in healing. Professionally, when not writing books, or working on AllThingsHealing.com, she leads workshops and teaches classes in spiritual development, using meditation, "subtle energies" and spiritual practice as tools for psychological and physical  healing.
