After this she dived in even deeper as she saw the depth of laughter as a therapy.
Panic and excitement are on the same frequency, through laughter we change the body’s interpretation.
After this experience Katie heard about this work here:
‘How Stress Makes Us Sharper’ shows us the psychology behind stress, and how we can harness it to improve our cognitive abilities. Ian is an eminent neuroscientist and founder of the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. He has authored many books based on the pressures of everyday life – his most recent book, The Stress Test, has been sold widely across the world. Ian contributes regularly to Nature and the Journal of Neuroscience.
“So fabulous that the jam has just spilled all over the floor…!” This shifts the energy and helps us to laugh at the drama. The more we do this the better we become.

We talked about brushing your teeth and playing with the mundane!
We also see some tips on RUNNING A LAUGHTER WORKSHOP
