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!

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.

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!
