Business Benefits of Laughter Fitness

Group laughter has profound short- and long-term effects on mind and body that are meaningful to business leaders.

  • Stress Relief:  Unwinds the negative effects of stress by reducing stress-related hormone (cortisol) and peptide levels.
  • Elixir Effect:  Causes endorphin release, which has been shown scientifically to create a positive state of mind and boost optimism, self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.
  • Immunity Boost:  Increases the levels of anti-viral and anti-infection cells; also cells that fight cancer.
  • Brain Boost:  Increases the net supply of oxygen which enhances brain performance, creativity, and energy.
  • Creativity Boost:  Helps balance right-and-left brain function, allowing for the integration of original thinking with practical realizations of new ideas.
  • Culture Boost:  Increases motivation and enhances team-building, communication and collaboration.
