Can you smell Springtime in the air?
Just a hint of the scent of blossom in the air, or the shrill dawn call of our feathered friends is all we need to feel that spring is in the air!
Forget the fact that it’s still freezing when our naked toes touch the floor first thing in the morning. And, forget the fact that it’s still not quite light when our tired little eyes are first exposed to the hint of a new day, promising to be fresh and new. All signs that winter hasn’t quite yet relinquished her grasp, with her bony fingers on still warm flesh cuddled by the duvet, are forgotten in the instance we decide that ‘It really should now be spring!’
With this in mind I feel it only right to remind you that Springtime heralds, not just the annual race for birds to find partners, seeds to start sprouting and flowers to blossom, but also it marks the the start of Laughter Clubs in the Great Outdoors! Ha Ha!
In an almost ‘secret garden’, in central Stevenage, the feint cries of “Ho Ho, Ha Ha Ha” can be heard echoing on the breeze, awaking passing commuters and completely confusing all wildlife and the uninitiated.
Imagine this, you get up early , the alarm isn’t your enemy because you’ve slept well and you know the reason you are up at this time is because you want to go and do something GREAT! Something which you know will involve meeting like minded people, getting a good dose of fresh air deep into your lungs. What you do will make you laugh like no one’s listening. You’ll be amongst friends, they won’t judge you, they’ll congratulate you and celebrate your choice to choose to start your day joyfully. When you are done, you will feel so rejuvenated and ready to tackle anything this new day throws at you. Endorphins (feel good hormones) will be rushing around your system. Your brain will feel refreshed from the extra oxygen your laughter has generated. The child-like playfulness awakens your creativity and boundless energy. And, what’s more…you’ll be looking forward to doing it again!
To experience this awakening of your body and soul, you need to book now!

Carers & Care Homes enjoy…
‘Laughter Line-Laughter Clubs’!
Caring for loved ones is a huge undertaking, and though rewarding, we all appreciate how emotionally draining and physically demanding that role can be. Putting others first is admirable, but neglecting your own health is often the result. We at The Laughter Line know from personal experience how easily this can happen. For professional carers too, despite having had years of training, even the most experienced carers often forget to look after their own health and well being, in the belief that their self care is not a priority.
Well, who is going to continue the high level of care they offer, if the carers are out of action?
Many of us don’t have others to step into that caring role when our own health fails, so investing a little time and effort into our own care first and on a regular basis, is vital!
Professional Carers, such as those from Care Homes for the Elderly, are using The Laughter Line sessions for professional development, offering Laughter Clubs for their residents!
Using Laughter Line sessions to invest both in their Management Teams, Caring Staff & their Residents too has “…made a huge difference to staff training and development, boosting morale and decreasing staff illness and turnover. The residents love the Laughter Line -Laughter Clubs too. We all really look forward to it, it brightens our week and it’s a great way to stay fit and motivated. We now have an ‘ELSIE’ too (an ‘L.C’, or ‘Laughter Champion’). She’s been trained up by The Laughter Line and carries on the happiness project in between sessions. It’s become part of our daily routine and everyone is benefiting!”
If you know of an organisation who could benefit from The Laughter Line’s training and development programmes, or you’d like to join a Laughter Club, or you’d like to become an ‘ELSIE…Please contact Gerry@thelaughterline.com
or call Gerry on 0779 300 9655.
Thanks & have a Ha Ha Happy Day.
