Laughter Yoga initially
started as a social club movement and has since entered the business world, where its practice provides companies and organizations
powerful operational benefits.
Companies around the world who have introduced Laughter Yoga into their business practices are finding that laughter has a profound impact on their
businesses, and may even contribute to making their companies more profitable. These companies report a happier workplace,
better communication and teamwork, increased
productivity and efficiency, enhanced creativity, decreased illnesses and absenteeism, and reduced employee turnover.
How Laughter Yoga Helps Improve Business and Performance:
While there are
many tools available for stress management, Laughter Yoga is a unique system that helps to reduce physical, mental, and emotional
stress at the same time. It works simultaneously on the body and mind. Scientific research evaluating the effects of Laughter Yoga in the workplace has demonstrated a significant reduction in employee stress levels,
as shown by a reduction in cortisol levels.
Happier people perform better. Laughter Yoga has the power to
change the mood state within minutes by releasing neuropeptides called endorphins from brain cells. These are the same hormones
associated with the "runner's high." Science also demonstrates that the brain requires 25% more oxygen than other
bodily organs in order to function at optimal levels. Laughter Yoga increases the net supply of oxygen, which helps employees
achieve optimal performance and increased energy levels.
People who laugh together, work together. John Cleese, a renowned British comedian, once said during his visit to a
Mumbai Laughter Yoga session, "Laughter is a great connector of people. It
breaks all hierarchies and is a force for democracy." Laughter Yoga has the ability to drastically improve
teamwork because laughter enhances positive mental attitudes, and creates instant rapport and
camaraderie among team members, which increases communication skills, and team building.
Good leaders are those one who have the ability to effectively
get in touch with their own emotions and understand those of others. Laughter Yoga improves emotional intelligence, as well
as emotional balance.
Innovation and Clarity
The essence of Laughter Yoga is to cultivate
a sense of childlike playfulness. This playfulness stimulates right brain activity, which is the seat of creativity. This helps to generate new ideas and insights about workplace issues and problems and provide
a competitive advantage for your company.
Increased Attention Span in Trainings and Planning Sessions
human brain cannot concentrate for more than 90 minutes at a time. After 90 minutes, attention span reduces. Even a short
Laughter Yoga session can provide a great energy boost during long training and planning sessions, which will
increase attention span and concentration,
enhance learning skills, and improve overall employee potential.
Positive Work Environment
dissatisfaction negatively affects employee productivity and company profitability. Laughter Yoga enhances positive attitudes
and improves interpersonal communication. This helps to create a more constructive work environment that enhances employee
loyalty and commitment.
Laughter Yoga is a single exercise routine, which improves physical,
mental, and social wellbeing in a short period of time. Session participants often feel health benefits from the very first session.
Ideal Exercise for Busy People
Lack of exercise leads to heart disease,
hypertension, diabetes, and many stress-related illnesses. Since Laughter Yoga functions as aerobic exercise, those who have
limited time to exercise can quickly and easily attain health benefits. Laughter Yoga is flexible aerobic exercise that does
not require special exercise equipment, clothing, or extensive time commitments.
