If every child in every primary school attended regular laughter clubs, we could change a generation and create a stronger, more compassionate society.
Laughter for Schools, Teachers, Students and Young People
Laughter is shown to reduce stress, promote positive psychology and manage anger. It also helps our health and happiness.
Furthermore, when we laugh with people then we become closer to them, so teaching can be enhanced and bullying reduced.
Benefits of Laughter
Because laughter boosts the immune system, it helps reduce sickness.
Because it reduces ‘bad’ stress hormones, it helps the us focus, behave and learn more effectively.
Because it releases endorphins and natural antidepressants, it helps us feel happier.
Because it clears out the lungs and gives us more oxygen, it increases our energy and our creativity.
Because it is a social tool, it helps build confidence and combats bullying.
Run your own Laughter Clubs
As well as running sessions, Feelgood Communities helps schools and colleges to set up their own laughter clubs.
In particular, pupils, parents and volunteers can run these together within the schools. A Laughter Club can be anything from 10-30 minutes long.
We intend having a schools laughathon, with as many schools as possible laughing together at the same time wherever they are.
