Let yourself go, laugh for what you can see, hear, feel, smell or taste. Associate with this particular funny moment in your life and experience the feelings.

Just go on and keep laughing, feel the feelings that you can remember of the event and really fill yourself with this energy source. If you lie or sit down on a bed or a comfortable location, you may want to try waving your hands and feet as it suits you, it’s good for your health to just let go of all your care’s and concerns at this very moment, while you bask in the complete fulfilment of this laughter trail.
