Do children need laughter?
The increasing pressure placed upon our children and young people in modern day society are taking its toll with focus on social perfectionism, academic achievement and other external pressures,an increasing number of children and young people are experiencing and suffering from stress and other mental and emotional issues throughout their school life.
There is no better time to equip your students with skills that will help them in their day today activities.
There is an ever increasing body of evidence base research supporting that laughter yoga can help with academic performance.
Social play as we know is imperative to the development of children’s social skills and emotional intelligence.
Laughter promotes childlike playful behaviour giving a child permission to be themselves.
Laughter improves blood circulation and oxygen levels within the blood, it aids stale air being released from the lungs. As the oxygenated blood flows around our bodies it flows easily around the brain achieving greater levels of concentration increasing learning abilities and enhances academic learning.
