How to Feel Good Even When Ill
It’s Christmas eve and I am with family in the Finnish countryside. Now, in Finland, Christmas Eve is when everything happens.
At noon, there is the Christmas Peace proclamation over the TV. Traditionally, everyone watches. Then, the Christmas sauna in the afternoon.
Early evening, the huge and delicious Christmas dinner. The Tension mounts as the children wait for “Joulupukki” or Santa to show up. In some homes, he actually comes inside and distributes the gifts. In others, we see him briefly outside the window and the gifts are dropped at the door.
The only problem is just as we are starting to eat, I come up with a fever and the chills. Uncontrollable shivering AND I can’t eat a bite!
Now, you may think this a disaster. I would have thought so too in previous times.
But with my experience with Laughter Yoga, I now have a secret weapon: a smile.
That’s right. Even though I am shivering with a fever and my body is rebelling against eating, I still feel good.
And it is the smile. As long as I maintain it, I continue to feel good. This is truly amazing.
We know that laughter causes the body to produce endorphins. It is the same with a smile.
I can feel the joy despite my body being racked with fever. What an amazing discovery.
I suspect the smile produced endorphins are also a major healing agent.
If you have not yet discovered laughing and smiling for joy and health, you can do so here: http://joyenergyandhealth.com/
You will notice the site says how to have authentic joy even when unhappy. I can now happily add: even when ill.
Try it out for your next illness.
Love, Laughter and Smiles.

“Every cell in your body has a direct relationship with Creative Life Force, and each cell is independently responding. When you feel joy, all the circuits are open and the Life Force or God Force can be fully received. When you feel guilt or blame or fear or anger, the circuits are hindered and the Life Force cannot flow as effectively. Physical experience is about monitoring those circuits and keeping them as open as possible. The cells know what to do. They are summoning the energy.” –Abraham Hicks

“Fear is a part of life. How you deal with it (or if you do at all) will dictate whether you’ll become successful.”

BOOKS WORTH READING
How to Take Charge of Your Life. The User’s Guide to NLP.
–Richard Bandler, Alession Roberti, Owen Fitzpatrick. Bandler is co-founder of Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP. This is a short, but powerful book.
MOVIES WORTH WATCHING
Sherlock. The new BBC TV series, starring Bendict Cumberbatch. Excellent. The first two seasons are out on DVD now. Watched the first two in the third season.
For my money, this is one of the best ever things that British TV has produced.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” -Oprah Winfrey, Television Host, Actress, Producer and Philanthropist
(Even when ill, we can be thankful we can remember to smile and speed up the healing.)
“What can you do right now to begin to turn your life around? The very first thing is to start making a list of things to be grateful for.” -Joe Vitale Author and Speaker
