What Laughter Does for Us
Laughter de-stresses and re-energises us
Acts to break down barriers and encourages team building
Unleashes inner joy and ability to cope with life's ups and downs
Great for the heart, lowers resting blood pressure & boosts immune system
Helps us to breathe more deeply and strengthens our lungs
Tones our abdominal muscles and makes us look younger
Encourages us to feel more positive and stimulates brain activity
Reduces pain levels and relaxes our mind and body
