Someone said to me the other day “laughter is the best medicine” and it got me thinking…is it though? So of course, I did some googling and it turns out it really does help. This is what google told me:
When you laugh, your body releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body.
So, I thought I’d put it to the test myself & see how people’s moods change during some of our team bonding events. I hosted one of our popular Game Show events tonight & when everyone walked into the room I could tell they were a little ‘down’ when they were told they were here for some team building activities (understandable I know!). However, after getting the teams up & moving around the room playing some silly games, laughter filled the room. During our grand finale “project runway”, to our Game Show I even saw a tear (of joy) running down one ladies face from laughing so much. This brought me great joy personally.
At the end of the evening, everyone was in such a good mood & genuinely enjoyed themselves & this really made me start to think – laughter really is the best medicine.
So if your team is feeling a bit glum – then book your next team building event with us. We can guarantee to bring the laughter!!
