As part of the Wellness Center's Winter Meltdown, we are leading a recreational laughing event this Wednesday (2/22) at 5:30PM near the info desk on the second floor of Powell. One way to describe this type of thing is as "laughter yoga," but this bears little resemblance to actual yoga. I've planned out a sequence of laughing "exercises" that do not require there to be any joke - the laughter begins voluntarily (like a forced laugh) but then feeds on itself and becomes real as people let themselves be amused by the situation. It's nice 30 minute break on your way to dinner.
There will be silliness, absurdity, camaraderie, and the opportunity to be playful in the middle of the week. We will be impossible to ignore in the middle of Powell, and anyone walking by is welcome to join in the fun. I am confident hilarity will ensue.
This is a great way to let loose some stress, get a little endorphin rush, and even burn some extra calories. If you think you could use a little pick-me-up, it would be great to have faculty, staff, and students all share a laugh - bring a friend with you to share the experience!
