What is Virtual Laughter Therapy
A virtual laughter therapy session consists of people laughing continuously for 40 minutes. During the session, the instructor shares 25 different funny laughing exercises one by one. Each exercise lasts 90 seconds. We don't tell jokes or tell any content. We only practice laughter. Every exercise is carefully crafted to make people laugh.
The activity is accessed via ZOOM/Microsoft Teams group video. Participants can see and interact with each other via video.
How it Works
After you book a session for your team, an automatic ZOOM event link is sent to you via email. Each session can accommodate 1 to 99 participants. A session lasts 40 minutes. To make the event as interactive as possible, we encourage all participants to keep their mics and video on.
Benefits of Laughter Therapy
There is no ice-breaker like laughter therapy. It frees the mind of distracting thoughts, stress, and anxiety. Especially during pandemics when we have so much time to obsess about our worries, laughter therapy can provide a great break because we have to concentrate on laughing for nearly an hour. The happy chemical kicks in immediately and improves mood.
After laughter therapy, many people report that they slept better and woke up feeling energized.
What is Audio Laughter Therapy
The aim of Audio Laughter Therapy is to make people laugh continuously for 15 minutes. Participants learn five different laughing exercises. The activity does not involve jokes or content. Exercises such as laughing in an extremely funny voice or laughing in a scary voice are shared by the instructor. To make sure that people laugh, the exercises are carefully designed through a group research technique. Each exercise lasts three minutes.
The audio feature of Microsoft Teams/ZOOM is used to access this activity. Users can interact with each other via audio.
Why Laughter Therapy
Work from home has made meetings less interactive and boring. We don't have as many opportunities to laugh together as we did before covid. Laughter Therapy breaks the ice and makes interactions more enjoyable.
Sitting in front of the screen and laughing at each other will make you feel like you are sitting next to each other.
