One of the causes of depressions and anxiety in our society is the deep feeling that we really are not in control of our lives. Many people suffer from a feeling of being powerless, that they can’t make a difference to their lives or circumstances. This feeling of helplessness leads to a form of mental and emotional slavery, a sense of being trapped and imprisoned in our lives. The moment you realise that you and only you are in control of your circumstances is a moment of true revelation. The energy we use to bind ourselves in the delusion of helplessness is the same energy we can use to set ourselves free. This is beyond some theoretical notion of freedom. This is a direct and powerful realisation that you really can experience extraordinary levels of liberation right now at this very moment. Relax your shoulders. Change your posture. Breathe. Your body responds immediately to these positive inputs. Your thoughts and feelings respond to your new posture and deeper breathing and you’ve suddenly created an extraordinary change in your emotional and mental well-being. The power is within in you. It always was. Use it for the most positive outcomes.

If humans ever needed a reminder of their power to transform their lives in an instant, we should remember to laugh and to laugh heartily and often. Even when the laughter is forced, our bodies react instantly and release tension. Laughter changes our outlook, encourages us to breathe more deeply, banishes fear, diminishes our attachment to our problems and helps us to feel more confident, more centred, more capable. Perhaps we take ourselves a little too seriously. Perhaps we imagine that we are the only ones with problems. Perhaps we feel that we really are important and should conduct our lives with gravitas and seriousness. Well these attitudes just get in the way of your deeper power, your well-being, creativity and capacity to enjoy life. So let’s use the body’s natural ability to release stress, anxiety and tension by laughing out loud. Make it a habit. You’ll feel so much better!
