I was watching Jessica Simpson’s show “The Price of Beauty” they were on a tour to India one of the most spiritual countries and they tried Laughter Yoga… I never heard of  laughter yoga before. It’s a therapy filled with laughter.

First you have to be with a group of people and then you start saying :

Ho HO HA HA several times then unconsciously you start laughing.

Then you do some breathing exercises

Then you observe silence until you burst into laughter.

It’s amazing! After all laughter is the medicine right??

Laughter makes you feel good. And the good feeling that you get when you laugh remains with you even after the laughter subsides. Humor helps you keep a positive, optimistic outlook through difficult situations, disappointments, and loss.


  • Laughter dissolves distressing emotions. You can’t feel anxious, angry, or sad when you’re laughing.
  • Laughter helps you relax and recharge. It reduces stress and increases energy, enabling you to stay focused and accomplish more.
  • Humor shifts perspective, allowing you to see situations in a more realistic, less threatening light. A humorous perspective creates psychological distance, which can help you avoid feeling overwhelmed.

If you’re feeling stressed and unhappy rosemary is the herb for you. Rosemary is an herb for stress that rekindles energy and lightens the spirit when brewed into a tea twice a day. Watch the video and listen to its benefits..I’m gonna go get me some rosemary herb 🙂

 

– Many women strive for an unrealistic ideal of perfection.to become the perfect mother, the perfect wife and the perfect everything, today’s superwoman can wind up becoming stressed out and dissatisfied instead.

– Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to have the perfect body. “You’re beautiful

– Stop trying to be the perfect mom. “You’re going to screw up your kids just a little bit, hopefully not too much,” he says. “It’s going to happen because we’re all human. We’re not perfect.”

Know that you’re going to get frustrated and tired. “You’re going to sometimes feel like your life isn’t what you want it to be…it’s called existential angst. It’s natural; it’s normal.

– Learn to love your age. You’re going to get older. “Stop obsessing over birthdays,”

Accept that your marriage isn’t going to be perfect. “There are going to be hills and valleys,”

– Expect that you’re going to have financial challenges in life.

Here we go again!! It’s Sunday, I struggled  while waking up this morning I just wanted to smash the alarm clock!! I snoozed the alarm like 10 times this morning and i was going to be late for school.

What makes matters even worse is that it was raining!! A rainy Sunday morning just makes you want to go back to bed and cover yourself under the blanket and have endless beautiful dreams!! But noooo….we have to go to work!!!

So after struggling this morning, I decided to finally get up prepare myself a nice cup of coffee and get ready for a busy and productive week.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!!

      A few days ago we read a story about friends forever so I told my students to write a letter to their bestfriend explaining why she chose her as a bestfriend. Some chose their Mom or their sister. Explain to your students that you can be friends with a family member. Here are some samples….so cute 🙂

This is my 100th post!! And  I wanted to share something special!!

Many teachers know this story, I remember my math coordinator read it to us 3 years ago, I don’t know how I it remembered again but I wanted to share this short movie with you to let all Teachers know that you have to take into consideration all students and know their backgrounds before judging them. Please listen to this story. it will change the way you think.
