“Healthy Event” – The Benefits of Laughter in the Workplace 

The benefit of Laughter in the Workplace event, organized by the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (ECA/EMCC Luxembourg) and AMCHAM, hosted by St. George’s International School and sponsored by Badenoch & Clark and Ajilon Recruitment, took place on December 1.

Approximately eighty enthusiastic participants attended the workshop. Following brief welcome speeches by Marie-Brigitte Bissen, President of ECA/EMCC, and AMCHAM’s Paul Schonenberg, the session began. The moderator, Paul Flasse of TroisQuatorze16 and Laughter Facilitator at the Dr. Kataria School of Laughter Yoga, explained how laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. Flasse then took participants through a series of warm-up exercises, laughter exercises, a laugh meditation and relaxation.

During most laughter exercises, group members keep moving and establish eye contact with each other. Most laughter sessions focus on enjoyment; laughter yoga exercises strive to cultivate the childlike playfulness that help participants to laugh without reason. Participants are encouraged to bring what they learned from the workshop into the workplace, as laughter reduces anxiety and helps fight stress.
