Well-being Workshop: Laughter Therapy As Stress Relief 02/12/19 - evening

Skills Hub, 2nd floor Students' Union • Mon 02 December 2019 17:30-18:30

While all Cardiff University students are welcome to book onto our workshops, the Wellbeing titles week commencing 2/12/19 are ideally for those who relate to the content in seeking help for any anxieties etc. they may be subject to.

Laughing is an excellent way to reduce stress in our lives, and can help to cope with and survive a stressful lifestyle. Laughter strengthens our immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects from the damaging effects of stress. Laughter draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body.

Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring our mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humour lightens one's burdens, inspires hope, connects us to others, and keeps us grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps to release anger and forgive sooner. You do not need to be happy or have a sense of humour to benefit from a good laugh. Laughter provides a full-scale workout for our muscles and unleashes a rush of stress-busting endorphins. Since our bodies cannot distinguish between real and fake laughter, anything that makes us giggle will have a positive impact.

Workshop delivered by a qualified therapist.

Bookings open on 17/11/19
