What brought me to write this post? 

Friday morning, I went to the Agile Montreal online gathering and I noticed that some of my colleagues went through a really hard week. When the facilitator asked about which subjects we wanted to explore during the gathering, I suggested exploring ways to heal ourselves, by adding fun and laughing out loud to our daily routines.

I started by sharing what I do these days to have fun:

  • Playing with my daughter, having her hanging on my back is one of our favourite ones.
  • Running around the living room with my daughter, like if we were exercising at the gym.
  • Practising a laughing exercise I learned from Joanne Stone at Coach Camp Canada called Ho ho ho Ha ha ha!

Then, I invited them to join me to Ho ho ho ha ha ha together, and we did it.

I learned that …

  • Laughing out loud brings me joy and helps me feel better inside.
  • When we laughed together, our faces lighted up and the room’s mood was positively changed.
  • Offering me the gift of a laughter is having a beneficial impact on my daily mood.

My invitation is to have a good laugh and recharge your batteries

I personally thank you for reading my article. I celebrate your courage, bravery, perseverance and resilience.

Here some reflections I have for you today:

  • How often are you laughing out loud?
  • How laughing out loud could help with you recharging your batteries?
  • What’s holding you back to spend more time just laughing?

Quick exercise:

  1. Take a moment to check in how do you feel inside.
  2. Now, give yourself permission to practice one or even two of the laughing exercises mentioned above.
  3. Check in again, how do you feel now? 
  4. Any improvements?

Please stay at home, take a deep breath, keep yourself safe, and remember that:

No matter what happens, I strongly believe that we are incredibly better together!
