If you're looking for creative ways to destress for self-care, at work, or any time in between, try this online laughter workshop. In this virtual exercise, your instructor will teach you how to access intentional laughter without leaving it to chance, the next funny movie, or not-so-funny comedian. This online class is especially great for team-building and reducing stress in your workplace.

Evidence abounds that play deprivation and loss of laughter are taking a huge toll on the overall health and well-being of an overwhelmed, burned-out, and isolated workforce. Laughter is known to play a significant role in increasing motivation, productivity, and improved cardiovascular health, while decreasing pain, stress, and anxiety. Most people believe laughter is for leisure time and doesn’t belong at work. Yet, the best time to laugh is when you’re feeling the most pressure and stress.

With a spirit of childlike play, Sarah stimulates creativity with clapping, breathing, stretching, movement, and the most animated laughter you’ve ever shared. Not only does it help to de-escalate stressful moments, turning them into opportunities for collaboration, connection, and growth, it also increases oxygen flow in the body, boosts the immune system, and provides a great exercise workout as it increases overall wellness. You will engage in exercises that will teach you to integrate laughter into your life to reduce stress and also learn the basic science behind laughter and smiling.

If you're looking for virtual team-building activities for your next team bonding event or want to find a way to reconnect with yourself, family, or friends, join this workshop. This vibrant, uplifting, and transformative experience creates a ripple effect of positivity, leaving you with a clear mind, a fresh perspective, and a healthy laughter glow.
