I am laughing more. It might be due to some interaction with family and friends under the easing of lockdown, but it feels good!
It turns out that a series of studies shows the positive impact humour can have in the office. “According to research from institutions as serious as Wharton, MIT, and London Business School, every chuckle brings with it a host of business benefits,” writes Alison Beard in the HBR article, “Leading with Humor.”
“Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity.”
HBS professor Alison Wood Brooks has also found that cracking jokes at work can make people seem more competent! http://ow.ly/Hrrv50EHRjV
Add to this finding humour in our everyday living. I love this fun article from the New Yorker and exceptionally risqué graphics http://ow.ly/56LZ50EHRjS
Also, a new business mentoring relationship with an amazing entrepreneur specialising in laughter yoga – take a look!
