Laughing at Work
How does better teamwork, better chemistry and brighter ideas from happy employees sound to the bottom line? Laughter yoga is seriously effective at building workplace cohesion and productivity. Laughter yoga relieves tension in real time. Got a big meeting with a lot on the line coming up? Landed a contract that means long hours? Want to help ensure it goes well? Spur your team with a laughter yoga class, before, during or while matters are being settled, helping foster cooperation and personal alignment and improving concentration and creativity. People who laugh together work better together.
Additionally the health benefits of bi-weekly laughter yoga sessions may lower company health care costs over time. While studies are as yet few, there is already strong evidence laughter yoga promotes heart health (see above), reduces blood pressure and promotes stress reduction. It's worth a try, what have you got to lose but your frown?
