Virtual Workshop: Laughter, the Remedy for the Lockdown Blues

By Gabriela D Spencer

On-Line: 22 April 2020

How often have you laughed this week or in the past week?

Probably not that much. Are you suffering from lockdown blues? Luckily, as laughter can be provoked, we do not necessarily need a reason to laugh. The brain does not make a difference between "fake" and "natural" laughter. In both cases the laughter will benefit your mood and your body, thus: hello good mood!

What can you expect from this workshop?

  • Laughter exercises and breathing techniques, all done whilst you are sat in front of your pc/phone/tablet
  • Your body will create endorphins, serotonin and dopamine.
  • An improved mood.

The lockdown save lives, laughter makes them more joyful. Join Gabriela and the Imagination Club at this workshop to nourish your laughter and cultivate that child like, worry free attitude.
