About this title


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.

About the Author:

Mary Huntley and Edna Thayer are long-time Minnesota residents, educators, and retired registered nurses with a wealth of knowledge and experience using mirthfulness and laughter to help others. Mary, the team's researcher, taught university courses on laughter, while Edna, the "laughing lady," gives numerous humor talks. Mary intentionally cuddles up to laughter; Edna intentionally creates positive laughter. Both strongly believe in the benefits of a mirthful spirit and the importance of positive laughter for wellness.
