Item Description...
Learn how to use laughter and positive mirth - the feelings of joy and delight - as simple prescriptions for wellness. A Mirthful Spirit describes the benefits of laughter for wellness with tips for maintaining mirthfulness within oneself, at home, on the job, and during times of distress. It inspires readers to intentionally seek out and create opportunities for mirth and laughter while minimizing negative humor in everyday life. One chapter zeroes in on the disturbing prevalence of bullying in today's schools and counters it with ways of preventing negative teasing.
A Mirthful Spirit makes the connection between laughter and music, shows adults how to grow up mirthfully with children, and ponders the historical and cultural aspects of humor. Written in a light, festive manner, it is based on the wisdom of laughter and wellness stories shared through many interviews. Readers working in schools or care centers will appreciate easy-to-remember acronyms describing the techniques, while lay readers will find cause to pause through a wealth of inspiring quotes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A perfect bedside companion   Mar 25, 2008
Reviewed by Regan Windsor for Reader Views (3/08)

"A Mirthful Spirit" uses stories, research, quotes, poetry, tips and suggestions by two scholars in the field of mirth and laughter. More than a guidebook for embracing mirth and laughter, "A Mirthful Spirit" provides guidelines for incorporating humor in the workplace, hospitals, and schools to improve productivity, wellness, and creativity.

One of the best things about laughter is that it is contagious. By teaching yourself the techniques and tips for living a mirthful life, one of the biggest benefits is that you will soon find yourself surrounded by people dispersing the joys of living with a mirthful spirit.

From the physical benefits (Initiates Internal Jogging, Thwarts Infections, Alleviates Pain) to mental benefits (Lightens stress, Increases brain-cell functioning), "A Mirthful Spirit" provides a handbook for healthy, happy, humor-filled living.

"A Mirthful Spirit" closes with an intriguing section on the historical and cultural highlights of humor. Even humor has evolved and matured from its beginnings (ridicule) to the healing powers of mirthful living we can access today.

"A Mirthful Spirit: Embracing Laughter for Wellness" is a perfect bedside companion and coffee table book; this is certainly a book to put on your gift lists. Not only will the receiver benefit from the wisdom among its pages, all will benefit from the gift of spreading mirth.

A Mirthful Spirit reflects the wisdom learned during the authors' own need to keep spirits high  May 12, 2007
Written by nurse educator Mary Huntley and registered nurse Edna Thayer, A Mirthful Spirit, Embracing Laughter for Wellness is a self-help guide to improving the quality of one's life through enjoying laughter, cultivating a mirthful spirit, embracing joy in the workplace, and more. A lighthearted guide extolling the physical and emotional health benefits of good cheer, A Mirthful Spirit offers such useful tips as "Use Ice Breakers and Attention Getters - Humor serves as a great way to break the ice and grab attention at meetings and during conversations. A simple idea for a small group is to bring an assortment of caps and hats, and ask each one to put on a thinking cap. When everyone looks around at each one wearing a hat, people are perceived differently and the mood becomes lighter." A Mirthful Spirit reflects the wisdom learned during the authors' own need to keep spirits high in the demanding and often life-or-death profession of health care, and is enthusiastically recommended for anyone looking to inject more cheer into their personal and professional lives.
