Sažetak Watching the entertaining facilities is one of the effective methods of promoting laughter, which in turn affects the blood pressure values and well-being. The purpose of the study was to determine how laughter yoga, which does not depend on understanding humor, effect on blood pressure and well-being.
Research Methodology: In this study, we used the technique of promoting laughter, called laughter yoga which does not depend on understanding humor. It includes respiratory-laughing fun exercises that encourage laughter very quickly. The study involved fifty-two randomly selected volunteers whose average age was 52.5 years. Volunteers were based on a questionnaire on health divided into those who take medications and those who do not. Their well-being, before and after exercise, was assessed using non-standardized numerical nine-stage questionnaire with a scale of 1 to 10. Research was conducted in 2012 in the Laughter yoga club in Maribor, once a week for sixty minutes (ten weeks).
Results: The results showed that laughter yoga has statistically significant effect on the level of blood pressure by volunteers who did not take any medications (N = 41; systolic: 7.73% (p <0.0001), diastolic: 5.83% (p <0.0001)). In volunteers who took medications (N = 11), we observed a drop decrease in the value, without statistically significant differences (systolic: 2.70% (p = 0.86), diastolic: 1.41% (p = 0, 25)). Statistically significant differences (p <0.05) were observed in the average change in enthusiasm, optimism, connectivity, energy levels, mood, muscle relaxation, breathing awareness, the ability to laugh for no reason. The biggest change was measured in the sense of stress after laughter yoga exercise (60%).
Conclusion: From presented results we can conclude that laughter yoga may be an effective adjunctive method for the prevention of high blood pressure in those who did not take any medications. For those who took them, it will be necessary to do further research on a larger number of people and to examine the influence of drugs. By all volunteers we observed a positive and statistically significant changes (p <0.05) in well-being. Most stood out the stress reduction (60.32%).
