Yes, life can be a serious business. And with issues like those mentioned on our home page around, it’s sometimes hard to find much to laugh about.
But lightening up about the things that trouble us – learning to ‘play’ with them – can give us the resources we need to deal with them. Somehow something alchemical happens and a space forms inside, enabling a shift to take place.
From a practical point of view, laughter has been shown to boost our immune systems, give the heart and lungs a workout, raise levels of serotonin in the brain, combating depression, improve mental function, helping us to learn and retain information more effectively, give the brain a refreshing mini-break, boosting problem-solving ability and improve digestion.
As a ‘laughter facilitator’, I run fun days and laughter sessions at all kinds of venues – from kids’ parties to coffee shops, old people’s homes to multinational corporations! I also run Live your Joy and The Power of play workshops, in which you can experience how being in a state of joy brings you more fully alive, enhancing creativity and helping you unfold into more of who you are.
