If you’re looking for ideas for wellbeing events, look no further. Laughter Yoga is a fabulous wellbeing work-out. It improves your overall wellbeing and really can make you feel better. Read on to find out why you need Laughter Yoga at your event this year…
Why Laughter Yoga?
Studies have shown that breath work, laughter exercises and meditation has benefits similar to exercise. All of these are incorporated into Laughter Yoga sessions. Medical research shows the body doesn’t know the difference between real and simulated laughter. Done with willingness, all the great benefits can be experienced through simulated laughter. A good laugh can help you release stress. A shift in mood takes place and life can be seen from a more positive perspective.
Physical health benefits
When it comes to looking for ideas for wellbeing events, Laughter Yoga really does cover it all. It will give your delegates a natural pick-me-up leaving them feeling energised and positive throughout the day. Laughter yoga activates the body’s feel good hormones and natural painkillers and lowers the stress hormone cortisol.
When you laugh, on the out breath the old air released reduces toxins and stress from the system. The new breath you take in is filled with more oxygen and nutrients that supports brain and body functions. As a result, participants have more energy and a better supported the immune system.
Mental health benefits
Laughter is the antidote to stress. Taking time to have fun helps create balance. Laughter is contagious and can support the process of opening your heart to giving and receiving. It’s easy to laugh when things are going well and you feel good. But if you are feeling stressed or going through a difficult period in your life you may not feel like laughing at all. Smiling and laughing comes naturally but as we transition from child to adult, you can lose this natural joyful expression. You can connect to this innate ability, still within us, by making more room in life for smiling and laughter
A good laugh can help mental health by releasing stress and feelings that may have been held down for a while. If left to build up, this can lead to depletion, burn-out and ‘dis-ease’. Laughing helps you remain in the present moment. When you are laughing you can’t be worried about yesterday or thinking about tomorrow.
