Autumn Affection from Yours Truly!

Late autumn and the leaves are colouring the streets red yellow, green and brown.

It is a time for settling in for the coldness to set in, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, and to reflect on the past year, planning the new to come.

Celebrations are upon us but not for everyone. Remembering those who lost and those who do not celebrate the upcoming festive season, lighting a candle for to chase the darkness away.

The darkness of our soul and our mind, and the lessinging lightful hours.

For me, this is a time of memories and future visions. Bringing it all together in a mish-mash of idea creation and snuggling with a hot cuppa while it all sets in my eternal being.

The past week has brought everything I have missed over the approximatyely 18 months of solitudal living together in just 7 people, a venue and laughter.

I already had been reminded in August together with 5 people – now we are 13 altogether creating new life and new dreams to live!

There is nothing missing in life. It is all there when we make the choice to bring it. Yes, we may have lost and our loved ones will never return, but dismissing life and living is not the solution.

The conversation, the discussion, the learning, the teaching, the laughter, the fun, the share.

I could not have hoped for more for 5 days on Laughter Yoga.

It provides me with plenty of material for reflection and gratitude.

Nothing is given in life but when we come together with pure hearts, honesty, compassion, and a lot of stories to share, we are given the opportunity to write a new ending to story of you, me, us together.

Nothing is ever set in stone.

We will win!

Why?

Because we have faith, courage, enthusiasm and <schhhhhhh – joy> JOY!

Love, Laughter and Grace

In the wake of the Laughter Yoga Teacher Training

I know what I will be teaching in my training courses, that is what the lesson plans and programmes are for.

Yet, I do not know until I enter the room and feel the energy of the group exactly what that teaching will be like and sometime it is so much more than 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training.

In fact, it is ALWAYS so much more!

People create the course. I know the syllabus and have the credentials to teach but each and everyone of you venturing on to the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training hold the key to the outcome.

No course is ever the same except the outline and the framework. I would stronly encourage you, as Laughter Yoga Leader, to become a Laughter Yoga Teacher.

If ever you saw something in being a Laughter Yoga Leader, and you would like to learn new skills, build deeper connections, find your true essence and share your authentic self, then please do book your place now.

Already there has been too much hesitation!

It was touching and moving and very inspiring to teach in August and building on top of August now October has unfolded in a truly connecting way that I am lost for bigger words (for once).

I find myself in a magnificently awesome place or space where everything and anything is possible because we are working together to spread laughter for the health of it.

You can think up a lot of things by yourself but together be have an even greater opportunity for making lasting change happen.

Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is what dreams and kinship is made of!

To learn more about how you can become a Laughter Yoga Teacher please contact Lotte on mobile/WhatsApp +44 (0) 7736341717 or email lotte@unitedmind.co.uk.

What started out as a sole trader business changed into a limited company in 2007 and there has been no stopping the share of laughter for the health of it since the very first day.

In addition I celebrate my 10th Anniversary as Laughter Yoga Master Trainer. What a true privilege it has been and continues to be.

There are 2 celebrations lined up in 2022 to celebrate these pivotal moments in Laughter Yoga UK history.

As Laughter Yoga Teacher, Laughter Yoga Leader, Laughter Yoga Colleague, family and friend you are invited to join this event for a small fee per person to cover the venue costs.

We play, we laugh, we cry, we talk serious talks, we plan, we laugh some more, we dance and sing – and then we eat some nice food together.

This reunion is our second get-together since 2012 and as a Laughter Yoga Teacher this is a must-go-to event! There is only a limited number of rooms available, and I advise you to book soon if you plan on joining us.

“Good Grief” from Yours Truly!

I was privileged to meet and shares laughter with the wonderful Reverend Richard Coles. We discussed how laughter can be a vessel for release when going through loss even when it may not seem the most obvious choice.

Many times I have felt that people shy away from accessing tears in combination with laughter when going through grief.

For many years I lost my own crying while being in a state of belief that being a Laughter Yoga Professional I needed to show how to laugh even through upsets and grief.

However, many years of continuous studies and life lessons taught me many new skills and gave me many eye-opening experiences that ended in an aha-moment of realisation.

No matter how much you laugh and even pretend to laugh there is no way you can laugh your grief and your tears away. Tears must be cried.

If you cannot find your tears and your deep sobbing, hire someone to cry with, because sobbing is like laughter very infectious and once we give ourselves permissing to open the gates, things get really messy.

Good ‘messy’!

Releasing suppressed feelings through tears, then laughter, then tears, then perhaps even rage (as long as it is not taken out on someone else), paves the way for authenticity, more laughter and equilibrium.

When we bottle up things life gets out of balance. Release of these stored moments, we once decided not to express, allows our whole being to start healing.

Then sleep comes and assists us.

Grief must be experienced through all the emotional stages but there is no way the process is the same for everyone, we will take the time and turns we need to in any given life.

Why can it not be generic, the way we all go through a certain grieving process?

We all have different layers of storage and loss can unlock old ‘stuff’ which when processed lets us experience experience all sorts of emotions that are not set out in a linear way described by scholars because they may not even relate to the latest event that is playing out.

In essence what I am trying to say in a not very eloquent way is that all tears must be cried and if we have not cried enough about certain events in our lives then the tears will surface on new occasions. On the other side of tears is laughter and then there is freedom and peace.

Don’t force your laughter when tears are what you need.

Wishing you tears and laughter in October.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Make Self-Care a Priority this World Mental Health Day!

Sha Hussain and Lotte Mikkelsen – we are at it again!

Sha sent out the following invitation which I urge you to accept:

Make self-care a priority this World Mental Health Day!

This is your last chance to register for our stress management and laughter yoga webinar to mark World Mental Health Day on Monday 4th October.

We all have a metaphorical stress container and contained within it are all the things that contribute to stress in our everyday lives, things like health, money, relationships and work. We can flourish with all of these elements in our container, but equally if we have too many things going on at the same time this can cause it to spill over.

We will look at the helpful and unhelpful coping methods we use to deal with stress, as well as run through an exercise to identify what is causing us stress and how we can deal with it effectively and build resilience against it.

We end this segment by presenting a list of essential skills to stay on top of stress and then hand you over to Lotte Mikkelsen for the second part of the session, which is guaranteed to make you laugh!

Organisations that have attended our previous self-care webinars include Deloitte, Santander, ITV, and the NHS.

Please join us on Monday 4 October from 11am-12noon. Email sha@thewellnessmovement.co.uk for details and how to join.

Laughter Yoga World Conference 19-21 November 2021

Laughter Yoga Teacher Training – 5 days of change!

It is easy to come to the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training and feel the enthusiasm and excitement for wanting to share the practice.

However, it is also easy to get back into the same routine as before the 2 days of awesome learning when life is back to ‘normal’ once Monday hits us once again.

The 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training connects the dots in a complete and life altering way.

Friendships and ideas are formed, we take the next step into the world of change.

During the 5 days you will get up early and go to bed late, but you will have learned something new even if you already knew the techniques.

The lessons you take away are about you and the commitment you have to yourself and your life.

It takes courage to step into being a Laughter Yoga Teacher.

And there is so much reward to gain from becoming a Laughter Yoga Teacher.

I have been teaching Laughter Yoga Teacher Training in the UK since 2012 and I count many teachers as my good and dear friends.

We work togther to promote laughter for the health of it.

Speak to me about why Laughter Yoga is a great choice personally as well as professionally. More than just laughter. Email lotte@unitedmind.co.uk.

During the two days you learn to facilitate a laughter club and you get an understanding of the depth of the work we do with Laughter Yoga, including exploring the benefits.

The five day training is the foundation for becoming a professional provider of Laughter Yoga workshops. However, you must run your Laughter Club in order to learn and become sufficiently skilled in the Laughter Yoga practice.

Once you become a teacher another avenue opens for you.

You have the option of providing one-on-one Laughter Coaching to individual clients.

It is essential to note that Laughter Coaching is not for everyone and to provide a fulfilling programme to individual clients you as Laughter Coach must be comfortabel with your own laughter and running individual Laughter Yoga sessions.

The reward in sharing laughter is outstanding! Whether it is in groups or with one-on-one clients.

The summer has ended the lyrics announce.

It is the eternal cycle of life, of our planets movement around its axis in this vast universe, the movement through the seasons.

Each season bringing new life, old life, rebirth, recycle, and that ever-evolving change that makes us all stay present or withdraw.

Laughter Yoga keeps you in the moment, refreshed with what was, what is and what is yet to come.

For far too long news and conversations have circulated around fear and worry, we are moving into a new era of contained connections and altered environments.

August brought to me some very delightful instances with honest, truthful, awesome interactions amidst the ongoing wondering whether we were ready.

We were all ready! We ARE ready!

The Laughter Yoga Teacher Training celebrated friendship, deep connection, fulfilling learning and workarounds. We all left richer and wiser with visions of the new world growing from the etymology of our practice, union.

Spending 5 days together in deep conversation, through lessons, activities and planning grew friendships and unity, just as it is written in the

It is unreal how time flies past in just moments, that was almost three weeks ago.

In addition the last weekend of August tells another story of the joy and deep connection we encounter when we share laughter together.

Mel and I took to the streets of London and entered an old favourite dungeon, Neal’s Yard Meeting Rooms, to spend the weekend with 5 Laughter Yoga Leaders in training.

I cannot express my gratitude deeply enough or share the encouragement that I wish to pass on to everyone who is ever looking to add more laughter to own life or share with others in a more eloquent way than simply to say, do it if you had the thought!

Laughter Yoga is more than a practice of Ho Ho Ha Ha Ha, there is profound, lasting change in the making when you choose the practice.

I am and will always be Your Everyday Laughter Queen and Laughter Yoga Master Trainer – here to serve with an open heart and open arms for good, grounding hugs.

Wishing you coolness in the days and warmth at your internal hearth.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Smilingfaces21 Why Suicide Why Not & Life

Lady Shola Babatunde is her name and Smilingfaces21 is her podcast.

The podcast is aimed at bringing hope, faith, smiles and laughter, despite the difficulties surrounding us.

Shola is a highly experienced Social Worker who is hoping to tackle the underlining reasons for suicide through empowering listeners who suffer from depression or harbour suicidal thoughts to continue to live life.

Smilingfaces21, ‘Why Suicide Why Not & Life’, is not just evolving with the mindset and culture that ‘there is always a good way out of any mess’ but that we are human beings of body, soul and spirit who can be healed, recovered and made whole if only we pay more attention to the whole being that we are.

How can we pay more attention to the whole being that we are I hear you ask?

This is not the simplest of answers yet we can only if we do not give up on ourselves, our trusted friends, family and neighbour to support us as required in times of need. As we know it is also advisable to get the right support whether from professionals or other as required and most of all not giving up on God to help cause there is always a type of fight to fight and I believe that we want to win. 

So many times to win we need the extra support whether from friends, family, professionals and most especially your Creator.

Hence the breathe  of ‘Smilingfaces21’ to try and bring light and definitely not making light of any situation but with the heart to lighten it up with a smile and laughter here and there. We therefore buttress daily obvious or not solutions that we so many times ignore but part of the solution to our daily mental, emotional, physical, social and relationships. Examples of these solutions is enclosed in our webinar and podcast platform, Smilingaces21.

These solutions include nurturing our health through nature, plants, the type of food we eat, our lifestyle, laughter, forgiveness, Jesus, traditional medicine as required and stories of survival of suicide attempts to give hope and the importance of hope for our continued existence. The ’21’ there shows the divinity of God always wanting to help and support us through the challenges of life that we go through no matter how small or big.

Isn’t it these different levels of challenges faced that so many times foster the thoughts of suicide and its intention?

That is why ‘Smilingfaces21’ is here to try as much as possible to try and educate and empower parents, guardians, neighbours, etc of its sensitivity yet complex nature and how to identify such with solutions so the thoughts of suicide and the sign for any negative action/s can hopefully be stopped by you and I before death occurs. 

We are in this together so lets do it so as to stop a suicidal thought leading to death.

Thank You for listening and helping another life be it yours or not.

Keep Smiling. Keep Laughing. And know that there is always a good way out of any mess. So please do not end it. Cause there is a way out of that very problem you are going through now.

Please follow Shola on Smilingfaces21.

Going Live – in Person

My mind is humbled by the thoughts of the many months that have passed with fear and worry, longing and excitement for when we would meet again – in person.

The hen parties I have been blessed with being asked to facilitate laughter sessions at over the past few months have been outdoors.

It has been easy as facilitator to instruct, guide and nudge into the exercises without necessarily being in the group, and the groups were more than happy to interact with each other.

Afterall they are the involved parties, they are the friends.

Felden Lodge had the systems in place to keep people at perfect health, distanced, and safe.

Still we had the best-est of times when we were together in person, in-joying laughter, chats, food, fun, goofing, and serious learning.

In London we cleared and cleaned the surfaces, followed the guidelines and had a fantastic weekend.

My first time in London since last time we were teaching in Neal’s Yard Meeting Rooms in March 2020.

They seemed a distant memory, those many months, yet everyone respects all boundaries laid out by the places we go and people we encounter in the work we carry out with such enthusiasm.

There are corporate workshops and laughter training in the diary for the coming months both online and in person, I believe both will co-exist for time to come and welcome anyone who will laugh in either way.

Laughter strengthens your immune defence and heightens your energetic vibration to better distance you to the lower energies of this world.

Speak to me about why Laughter Yoga is a great choice personally as well as professionally. More than just laughter. Email lotte@unitedmind.co.uk.

Learn Laughter Yoga – autumn, winter and onwards!

The beginning of any Laughter Yoga Training journey starts the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

During the two days you learn to facilitate a laughter club and you get an understanding of the depth of the work we do with Laughter Yoga, including exploring the benefits.

Even if you do not wish to teach Laughter Yoga for many leaders the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is a great choice as it adds breadth and width to their skills and knowledge.

The five day training is the foundation for becoming a professional provider of Laughter Yoga workshops. However, you must run your Laughter Club in order to learn and become sufficiently skilled in the Laughter Yoga practice.

Once you become a teacher another avenue opens for you.

You have the option of providing one-on-one Laughter Coaching to individual clients.

It is essential to note that Laughter Coaching is not for everyone and to provide a fulfilling programme to individual clients you as Laughter Coach must be comfortabel with your own laughter and running individual Laughter Yoga sessions.

The reward in sharing laughter is outstanding! Whether it is in groups or with one-on-one clients.

More information about the different programmes is available on

Looking into Autumn from Yours Truly!

Laughter yoga is my business and my dream come true – to share laughter in workplaces and with individuals who then share more laughter.

In 2002 I started my business in a small way while working part time for someone else and it worked well at the time.

Then in 2010 I made it my full time business – I believed it was possible and I had the opportunity to make it happen.

I believed in my dream of helping people heal with laughter and through laughter. I believed in my dream that I had come into this world for something bigger than working for someone else.

10 years later my dream was still going strong and my business growing and flourishing. 11 years later my dream is still going strong and my business is regaining its strength.

However, 2020 brought some unforeseen challenges and although busy there were areas that did not work because we simply could not meet in person.

A year ago I made a choice to work for someone else while things settled and to support my living while UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga in the UK recovered from the shock of the health wave that hit many people, communities, and businesses so hard in 2020.

So please forgive me if I have been less present and slightly absent at times while I have been workhing my dream alongside someone else’s vision.

It has been busy and my Laughter Yoga work has escalated with plenty of corporate workshops and events, which I love facilitating. The corporate workshops have grown and become a truly successful workplace venture affecting many people every day.

I have many great stories of joy to share! Thank you.

Thank you to all teams and managers, workplace health ambassadors, and groups who have taken Laughter Yoga to your organisations, there is much more to come.

As Laughter Yoga Master Trainer I have also been able to bring the Laughter Yoga Training to many through online courses and have given people the opportunity to start the change they would like to see in their lives and the lives of others.

I love helping others achieve their dreams or simply start on the path of that dream whether it is with Laughter Yoga as key or simply as part of a bigger picture.

UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga in the UK is growing and there is change coming!

My hope for autumn is change! And I see it happening.

I trust in the change and abundance of opportunities that the coming months will bring to us all. Now is the time Laughter Yoga has a true impact in all of our lives.

For the first time since January 2020 the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is ready to roll, and we start on 9th August.

Now, that is one change that is in full motion – coming together again.

We change the world together but we make the first move alone!

Here is to joint efforts and dreams come true!

Your Everyday Laughter Queen and UnitedMind Laughter Yoga is more committed than ever to bringing joy and laughter, health and happiness to the home and to the workplace.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Wild Weekend South with Love Her Wild

In February 2020 I shared laughter with Love Her Wild at their anniversary.

Love Her Wild was founded by Bex Band and she says “the best thing that ever happened to me was going on an adventure! It improved my physical and mental wellbeing. It boosted my confidence. It gave me some of the greatest friends and instilled a passion for protecting the environment.”

The Wild Weekend brings together Wilders for a weekend of camping, learning new skills and listening to inspiring stories while having the space to relax with yoga, meditation or just being with like-minded women. It’s a great weekend – you won’t want to miss it!

Mid-2021 Moment from Yours Truly!

Every day is a day where there is potential for something joyful occurring.

Each day we make our decisions for our shared energy, smiles, and frowns, and how we go into life is a reflection of those choices we have already made consciously or subsconscioutly when we open our eyes to a new awakening.

Not all choices seem to be made by ourselves but think again, consider what brought those events, choices, decisions into your presence. If you were not there none of what happens around you would be happening.

Mind buggling? Yes, maybe, or not.

At the core of it all is out willingness to take responsibility and be accountable for life as we encounter or moreso create it.

There is a lot of things we often feel we cannot do anything about, and that may be true, but for those things where there is an option to start change happening when one person leaps forward into the unknown, then be that person if you have the thought.

The support when walking in front, taking a stand for something bigger than the ego, is way vaster than the trolling that sometimes come from unexpected angles. Judgment is within us all but practicing Laughter Yoga has the potential of removing the judgmental streak in us all, and we become accepting, considerate, compassionate and understanding.

We are all the same, regardless our colour, flavour, belief, education, orientation, and we all have on world, we are one world.

As the Pride month of June has now come to a close I think of the support and love for the LGBTQ community and wish that every day of the year will keep it flourishing and growing.

The companies I have worked with over the past many years have extensive policies of inclusion and diversity, and they honour the multitude of talents people from all walks of life bring to their business and their lives.

Laughter brings us closer to our essence where there is no difference between us. Differences are made up by people. Humankind is kind and human in our heart of hearts.

Share laughter liberally as with joy comes freedom, acceptance and love.

Wishing you a July full of joy, jiggling, and jazzy jumps.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Laughter Therapist Training – a popular choice

Becoming a LaughterTherapist is a really special achievement that requires true human insight, awareness, and a willingness to release own trauma, stories, and tension.

Melanie Bloch and I facilitate the Laughter Therapist Training together on 21-22 August in Stanmore, a course that was developed by myself over many years and brought together in unity with Mel.

It is an awesome course!

Mel brings an essence of love, forgiveness and pure being to the course and together we take you on a journey of self-discovery to enable you to assist others on their one jouney to joy and laughter.

The Laughter Therapist Training starts with 2 days spent together, and then the real training begins when you take on 2 case studies each running over 8 sessions.

This course is equivalent to Level 7 training. The requirement for the training is to have a practicing background as therapist, holistic therapist or counsellor.

To book your place on the training: www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/accredited-laughter-therapist-training-hemel-hempstead.

If you are interested in finding out more about this training please join us on 18 July from 2-5:30 at the Introduction to Laughter Therapy. Click to book.

MOMEGA (Make Our Mother Earth Great Again) & the Masked Laugher

I met Steven Voet at the Laughter Yoga Congress in France in 2019, a man with a vision and on a mission to change the world, like so many other people.

However, Steven has a charm and an ability to effortlessly enroll you in his idea because it is great and it makes sense.

You cannot ignore him and he is full of laughter!

MOMEGA’s manifesto is

  • Mission: UNITE ME
    Helping to recover the inner connection & the connection with Mother Earth.
  • Vision: KEY=ME
    Everyone can contribute to a solidary & sustainable World.
  • Strategy: CHAHAHALLENGE ME
    Hereby creating hope, faith & a globallong-term loving focus on our Home. See less

We are already making our Earth an amazing and caring place, let us simply do a little more!

In addition I laughed with MOMEGA’s ambassador, The Masked Laugher, about life and happiness and you can watch our chat on https://www.facebook.com/Hohohahahappy/videos/523514845747941.

Geronimo!

The year has felt as if it has disappeared into a wealth of unfolding, unexpected events surrounded by laughter, joy, grace and gratitude.

As if we simply leapt into a full on adventure in living – and suddenly we are in June.

What happened?

Life will never be the same, but we have said that many times in our lives when changes have fallen upon us, and this year is no different. Except. It has touched us all on a scale that went from my world to OUR Universe.

No wonder many people feel apprehensive, hesitant and lots of other feelings, but inside us all is a spring of unsprung life waiting to go “GEROMINO! Life is still here and it is ready for me and for us!”.

In June a new opening will be unveiled as we mark the transition to everything on 21 June.

How will it change? Has it simply been a fanthom idea we have set as a goal post and nothing more than a spun thought bringing us back to reality in a higher (or lower) realm of consciousness?

One thing is certain, there is no separation of camps, or at least there should not be any division, as we all stand together facing a changed future. Unfortunately, there is separation coming our way and it is up to us as individuals to see beyond our differences and unite us all regardless our views and decisions.

We are the peaceful warriors who bring light and love where there is darkness and indifference.

With laughter comes great responsibility and a non-judgmental way of living and viewing all life on this planet and in these universes.

So, good folk, sunshine is upon the UK and many other places, and it is time to life the veil of uncertainty, going into the world refreshed, renewed, recreated as if it was on purpose.

Share laughter liberally as with joy comes freedom, acceptance and love.

Wishing you June in your life alongside balance, beauty and joy.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Lotte Mikkelsen – Mental Health First Aider

I feel extremely privileged to have completed my Mental Health First Aid training. Joining the ranks of millions of other people who did it before me and millions to come.

You do not become an expert overnight, but with compassion and listening skills you have a real chance of making a difference.

I highly recommend training in Mental Health First Aid and firmly belive this should be available to everyone as part of school curriculum.

Soul Sanity – live online classes for mental wellbeing

Building relationships to support mental health in the workplace and community is rewarding both personally and professionally.

I am excited and grateful to be working with Holly and Soul Sanity in delivering online classes for mental wellbeing and already the clients are booking laughter sessions to strengthen relationships and build resilience.

Soul Sanity launched in 2020 – the year of the pandemic. Interestingly the idea for Soul Sanity came before the pandemic during what I can only describe as a life-changing experience. 

Soul Sanity goes on writing:

It all started when a loved one had a tragic diving accident and broke his neck. He became paralysed from the chest down. This as anyone can imagine is life-shattering. Being in my early 20’s and quite naive, the situation was terrible but something I believed as possible to overcome.

Laughter Teacher Training including Online Prep

I hold some very fond memories in my mind and heart from the awesome Laughter Yoga Teachers who have created the training with me since 2012.

There is no doubt there have been challenges, too, but they fade away when the network of Laughter Yoga Teachers blossoms into a unity of trust, co-creation and mission.

The six Laughter Yoga Teachers in the pictures below came to Hemel Hempstead in January 2013 and left with much more than a teacher certificate.

The friendships and kinship we create and experience in the settings of Felden Lodge make memories last a lifetime.

This course is for Laughter Yoga Leaders who are up to something with laughter and health on a much grander scale.

The training in July 2021 has already started with the online extras which have allowed student teachers to start their training online in preparation for the days we will be spending together.

The course started its 10 online 1-hour sessions in April and will go into June, until we continue with the full training in person on Monday 5 July:

  • 25th April Lesson 1 Laughter yoga for seniors 
  • 2nd May Lesson 2 Laughter Yoga for School children 
  • 9th May Lesson 3 Laughter Yoga in Business 
  • 16th May Lessons 4 Laughter Yoga in Hospitals and Health care
  • 23rd May Lesson 5 Laughter Yoga for People living with Special Needs
  • 30th May Lesson 6 Gibberish workshop – cancelled due to technical challenges
  • 6th June Lesson 7 Which training programs you can offer 
  • 13th June Lesson 8 Promotion, marketing, PR, and presentation skills 
  • 20th June Lesson 9 Creating new exercises 
  • 27th June Lesson 10 Inner Spirit of Laughter 

The course in July is full and next 5-day training is 25-29 October 2021. This course is nearly full already so make sure you get your place booked before it is too late to become a 2021 Laughter Yoga Teacher.

Make More of May from Yours Truly

Spring is showing its beautiful face in Britain and people are shedding the layers.

As we venture out to enjoy the growing warmth from the sun we leave dreary thoughts behind and go smiling forward with new hope.

As I reflected on the past many months (which I do regularly) I realised I have not been in London since March 2020.

The days when I was teaching and running workshops in person 4-5 times a week, seems longer ago yet it is such a short time in an adult life.

However, there are other challenges ahead than travelling to London. Things that are bigger than one person and with the increase in the mental health reality among otherwise seemingly healthy people we are entering May when we bring focus to this part of our lives with Mental Health Awareness Week from 10th to 16th May

We all have mental health.

We all hold responsibility for self care, in nurturing ourselves, or we cannot be there for those we love who are unable to get through the shifts.

How can we make more of May?

Everything in life is about being present. I think we forgot for a long time and became more present in the past year.

Present to life’s challenges, present to news we did not like, present to each other long distance, present to a challenge many faced like an ostrich, present to loneliness, present to phobias.

Maybe more importantly, we have become present to community, connection, love and what ties us together.

That, my reading friend, is worth making more of in May!

Share laughter, share joy, share tears, share openness, share your story.

Wishing you good physical, emotional and mental health.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Feeling comfortable and confident being in the room

As we are facing changes to our lives in lockdown circumstances, with less restrictions being introduced to our movement in society, there may be many questions arising.

Online laughter workshops and laughter training has been and continue to be very popular and UnitedMind experts are booked well into the year for online events with corporate business and organisations around the country and world.

With an investment in setup and infrastructure allowing staff to work comfortably from home online sessions will continue to play a big part in maintaining staff health on physical, mental and emotional levels.

The benefits to workplaces are central to productivity, less absenteism, staff retention, teamwork and stress management.

Laughter Yoga is not only about the laughter, there is a depth that can be experienced in online as well as in-person sessions.

The past years has shown a tremendous rise in the number of workshops booked for teams and groups, organisations and corporations. Key to many of these sessions has been the possibility and opportunity to connect people across borders, countries, continents without relying on traveling to venues thereby limiting the connection with colleagues around the globe.

Online workshops will continue to connect people at work!

When people are once again given permission to be together in office spaces we can once again share laughter in person. However, with this opportunity for connection in the same space we are also keen to make it a safe experience.

UnitedMind and our partners do all we can to ensure participants in our workshops and training feel confident, comfortable, and secure in the groups we facilitate.

If you are in doubt whether online or in person is right for you please contact us and we will discuss the options available.

Listening is what we do!

April Alchemy from Yours Truly

Always seize the moment for joy and laughter when it presents itself!

April and more spring is here now and it is an exceptional time to blossom and enjoy every growth that goes on in us and around us.

A great time to look at who we are, who we are becoming and who we really deep down want to be in this life.

Fine tune or find your tune!

The growing seeds of liberation and acknowledgement of the change we have felt over the past many months are bursting to manifest themselves in myriads of ways, and we are just vessels for change to unfold on a bigger scale when we embrace our soul’s joyful breath, our laughter, and our journey.

On this path of kindness, joy and creation we form friendships and alliances that are essential to how we can grow with each other and sometimes grow apart.

So many things have happened this past year and many of these things are outside where I see myself and my work flowing, growing, sharing and caring, and perhaps you reflect just the same.

We all have an abundance of potential but it does not mean we all know how to access this potential in the ways we imagine, and often we are in too much of a hurry to fully notice what we have and who we are, so we miss out on seeing what we can do differently and missing out on seeing the bigger picture.

Sometimes the best choice is to break free and go a different way than those who went before or went along.

I love teaching Laughter Yoga on all the leves of teaching there are.

Along the way I always look to create lasting connections and to co-operate with likeminded people in order to have a greater impact in the world than that of one person.

Undoubtedly, I am blessed with friendships and colleague-ships that are outstanding and rich on so many levels. Thank you all.

It is also okay to say no. To say, this is where the journey, relationship, co-creation, partnership, etc. ends – but right now is not the time.

It is a new spring and a new time ahead. I am reaching out with arms open to welcome you into the world of Lott’o’Laughter, of sharing Laughter Yoga together for greater health, resourcefulness and co-creation.

As we join our wisdom and creativity we alchemise the change we all need so much, lifting the energy, light and spirit of us all.

In my mind this April Alchemy made sense, and if all else fails… I wish you a wonderful month of April!

Love, Laughter and Grace

Overcoming Overwhelm Virtual Online Forum by Radka Gimerova

Meeting Radka was a real honour. A mother, HR Professional, Transformational Coach, and Aroma Therapist with real inspiration and motivation to share for life and work.

Radka has organised a wonderful virtual online forum, Overcoming Overwhelm, and you are invited to register for free via the link, https://sparkyourbalance.com/event/.

Starting April 14th for 5 days, you will receive 2 experts interviews each day. All are designed to deliver not only the wisdom and tools to practice, but also a real experience for you to embrace.

A feeling of overwhelm can paralyse you in your movement at work or in life. Your ability to take action on even the tiniest things can feel undoable and you can easily feel trapped.

I feel privileged to be part of this super-charged panel of experts, and recommend the many facets that are being presented on how you can overcome feeling overwhelmed.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

Right Up My Podcast

The Right Up My Podcase with Gwen and Katie – and Laughter Yoga – is live!

It is the season for podcasts and I am excited to soon introduce the next one on, with Irene Moore on the Savvy Startup Podcast.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

On the panel of illumi

Laughter Yoga on www.illumi.live

Working together is definitely a theme for this month, the past months, and the months moving forward.

For that reason it was with great excitement and also a few great expectations I opened an email from one of the great event organisers in London, who had decided to launch their virtual events company and were looking to bring experts onboard for the events they would be promoting.

Here is who thery are:

“Hi, we’re illumi. “…and what is illumi?”, you may ask, quite reasonably. Simply put, we are the home of standout, content-led virtual experiences. Think of illumi as the lovechild of amazing content plus events expertise, with exciting emerging and under-represented talent as godparents.

Death by PowerPoint is over. Zoom is tired. All-hands emails are so last century. Webinars are on the wane. But virtual meetings and experiences are here to stay—and your audience deserves something stellar.

Enter illumi, stage-left. We take our extensive experience in events, digital, broadcast and technical delivery (award-winning experiential event agency WLLX is our parent company), and combine it with our bright ideas and sparkling content from our growing family of talented co-creators. The big finale is memorable and impactful virtual experiences that will have your audience craving more. Prepare for rave reviews.”

And they say a lot more, please visit them on https://www.illumi.live/ where there is more to be discovered.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

The Wellness Movement Diary – unmissable!

March Musings from Yours Truly

As I am reflecting on life, the Universe and everything I feel hugely grateful for all that this past year has brought with it.

Yes, it has been a stange and in many ways differently-challenging year.

Yet the lessons I believe most of us have taken from these months have been some of patience, empathy, kindness, acceptance, support and perseverance.

There have been losses and joys, and mostly we have come together across nations to help each other through the times when we lost our control of our birthright – the right to choose.

Choice – as individuals and as a team players!

There are still many turns ahead on the path but one thing is clear, we are in it together and together we will be stronger.

Together it is easier to face the isolation and loneliness that can sometimes creep up on all of us.

Be kind, be open, be listening, there are people who go through their ‘stuff’ in silence and no one should be left feeling by themselves regardless who we are.

I for one feel I have become an even better version of myself, become even truer to my ideals and ethics, perhaps also less accepting of the things that are not okay, but all in all my heart is open and embracing the fullness of the challenges we face together and by ourselves.

Where did the year take you on this life quest?

Reflection is a way of viewing things in perspective. Reflect with compassion for yourself instead of beating yourself up for what might have been different.

As we have already moved into Spring, opportunites, hope, and vision for our laugh life is paving my path jointly with those of you who have chosen to take on laughter skills for health and happiness.

Thank you for the past year and the years before plus the years to come!

Sending you March mirth and joyous wishes!

Love, Laughter and Grace

Right Up My Podcast

It was such a pleasure speaking with Gwen and Kate of Right Up My Podcast on a Saturday morning with the sun shining on us all.

Here is what the pod is about:

“Exploring some of the lesser-known (and occasionally bonkers) methods of self-care, self-love and ways to make you feel good. Gwen and Kate talk to people about what’s right up their street, then try it out themselves to see if it works. Released fortnightly. Contains bad language and inappropriate laughter.”

And now we have covered Laughter Yoga!

Right Up My Podcast Podcast Artwork Image

There are many types of podcasts with topics for us all, this one is certainly worth a listen when Gwen and Kate investigate and add their own wisdom, fun and laughter to the conversation.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

Alchemising Change in the Workplace

For anyone who consider a Laughter Workshop for fun and enterntainment it may very well be the experience you get.

However, a Laughter Workshop, programme or training is not only about that brief moment of shared mirth.

My workshops and programmes enable long-term change within as well as in the world around us.

Whether I have worked from home or in an environment with my team in person we have always strived for harmonious connections and team abilities that have been beyond simply doing a daily job.

I believe this spirit exists in us all and that Laughter Yoga can be the foundation for the thriving of any team member in any coporation or organisation.

Laughter Yoga introduces you to a way of connecting to your peers as well as yourself in a profound and magnificent way that paves the way for team connection, stress reduction, joing motivation, integrity and enduring change no matter what.

This way of being is a key driver for success in life and at work, without the need for pretence, we simply connect with our inner joy and self-expression.

We become our own Change Alchemist!

February Musings from Yours Truly

Sometimes transformation shows up in places you least expect because they already seem transformed or on an aligned path.

It does not take a daily practice of Laughter Yoga to create change in life, it does not take Laughter Therapy to change perspective, and it does not take Gibberish to shift deep-rooted patterns.

Occasionally it only takes a conversation and a willingness to be a listener or a sharer of authenticity.

Laughter Yoga is not about fame and fortune, it never has been. Laughter Yoga presents life-altering takes on how we can truly become the fullness we are meant to be.

We are not our jobs, our names, our addresses, our relationships, or even our past and future.

Those elements are simply what brought us to the realisation that we are more and we are one.

Forgiveness, gratitude, grace – it all creates a much more centred and content human experience.

Practices that are beyond any dogma or other control-based leadership that may seem real but most often battles our true nature.

In this age of physical isolation we have such a great bond that has been built on hope and open-heartedness, as well as fear and worry.

Letting go of all the negativity that surrounds us daily, and all the things we feel we need to do, can be a real challenge.

Yet when we connect in laughter and joy all the hurdles seem to dissipate for that while and although they do not simply vanish they becomes lesser than before we changed our biochemistry with good mirth.

Consider the energy you bring, the authenticity you share.

Reveal yourself, reveal your heart. We all need openness.

Sending you grace and kindredness in February!

Love, Laughter and Grace

Review of Mental Wellbeing and Laughter Therapy for HR Professionals

Almost 80 businesses joined us at our inaugural mental wellbeing check-in and laughter yoga webinar on Wednesday 27 January.

Thank you for all the comments!

“Really enjoyed the wellbeing check-in & route to happiness. The laughter yoga was a fantastic experience.”

“Mindfulness and Laughter Yoga exercises – ideas to support myself and my team particularly while we are working so remote from each other.”

“Seeing everyone else playing and laughing makes it easier for me to let go.”

“I enjoyed the laughing yoga exercises. I felt better from a very stressful week and being without a job at the moment.”

The Wellness Movement with Sha Hussain and UnitedMind Laughter Yoga with me, Lotte Mikkelsen, thoroughly enjoyed the morning and look forward to our next Mental Health Check-in and Laughter Workshop on 28 April in pre-celebration of World Laughter Day on 2 May.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

The Choice for Holistic Workplaces

When I applied for a job at a large software company back in 2005 I was inspired by their manifesto which talked about the organisation as being a holistic entity.

That was a new one for me as my encounter with the word holistic at the time was related to being a holistic therapist.

Looking at a workplace holistically brings in everyone and everything to a joint force to be reckoned with in the market.

A team where everyone matters, and everyone is noticed and looked after while assessing and developing their skills to suit the task.

The method of sharing laughter based on Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy has gone beyond the standard delivery I learned 20 years ago.

There is a true joy-sensation arising from connecting with the soul of a company, finding the value and essence of what triggers people to be at their best and stand together with the business ethos and goals at heart.

Laughter workshops and training bring people together and creat focus, motivation and energy to go the extral mile from a holistic perspecting that takes health and wellbing into account both for the individual and for the team, in the workplace and at home.

My work is not only about laughter, it is a holistic approach to the human experience we call life.

For information about our workshops, programmes and training, and to work with us please get in touch via email info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714 or 07736 341 717.

Therapeutic Harp Workshop from The Wellness Movement

Sha Hussain, founder and award-winning wellbeing consultant, and harp practitioner Julia Mitchell will be delivering a specially curated mental wellbeing check-in and ‘mind painting’ therapeutic harp visualisation on Wednesday 24th February at 11.00am.

This is for all you lovely people out there, supporting your colleagues and a special shout out to those working in the NHS in these uncertain times (Sha and Julia have your back).

Click here to book your spot and feel free to share within your network.

Why The Telephone Laughter Club is a great wake-up call

The Telephone Laughter Club runs Monday to Friday at 7am to 7:10am.

Why is it such a great way to start the day when there are so many other morning rituals to choose between?

It is not just one thing about morning laughter that is good, but the key thing that happens is that you start shifting your focus from ‘plodding along’ to starting the day with intention and vitality.

Many times we wake up on auto-pilot or even worse – on the cue from an alarm clock. Without thought or mood we venture into the day, barely awake, setting ourselves up for what lies ahead.

Change your morning and you will change your life!

The full story of The Telephone Laughter Club in the UK can be read on www.lottemikkelsen.com/laughter-ms.

Please subscribe and support The Telephone Laughter Club by donating the annual fee of £30 to keep it going every weekday morning from 7am-7:10am. You can subscribe via www.unitedmind.co.uk/product-category/subscriptions.

with Maggie Thompson

This 1-day training is for people who have had their first taste of Laughter Yoga and would like to know more about what it is, what it does and how it can become a beneficial daily practice.

The Laughter Yoga Basic Skills sessions would be ideal as a next step!

Maggie has run this exciting day of learning both in person before 2020 and online in 2020 and she says

“Having run these sessions as a 1-day workshop in the past, it transfers successfully to be run in 1-hour sessions via Zoom as I ran it twice last year.”

The sessions not only gives people a great tool they can use in their everyday life but also gives them the sense of connection with the other participants during the sessions.

  • Mondays 8, 15 and 22 March and Wednesdays 10, 17 and 24 March 2021 from 7,00 pm to 8.00 pm on Zoom, and the cost is £90.00 or for early bird up to 1 March £75.00.
