Laughter %281%29

Robin Graham's passion is for communicating and sharing and includes using laughter both therapeutically and for fun. He is known as an inspirational speaker delivering workshops, training, ice breakers and presentations throughout the UK and overseas.

Here is an overview of the workshop: At the start of each session, we will let our mind take a 30-minute holiday. Through a series of gentle exercises, we will use our breath, playfulness and laughter to bring us into the present moment. However, busy we are, we all sometimes need a way to take a step back, and laughter is one dynamic, powerful way to do this, in times of boredom, laughter can be an energiser and increase our sense of happiness.

As we observe ourselves and the changes we have made to how we feel, we will then take a deeper look at laughter and playfulness, our breath, and the choices that we make. Topics that will be explored include the physiology, meaning and benefits of laughter; inappropriate laughter; some techniques to deal with life’s challenges; breathing techniques to relax us; and how we have some choice over which thoughts we choose to keep hold of.
