Energize, De-pressurize, and Mobilize your Workforce ... with Laughter!
Employees of USIS®—an Orlando, Florida-based company that provides third party administration and managed care services for Workers' Compensation and liability claims—got a taste of how laughter really is good medicine during a Laughter Yoga session at their offices. Led by “PositiveLY Pat” Conklin, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, the group of 12 nurses and two medical assistance personnel from the AmeriSys Medical Management division of USIS® laughed their stress away during their staff meeting.
The hilarity was contagious, reverberating through the four walls of the conference room where the Laughter Yoga session was held. Hearing the uproarious laughter pouring into the adjacent hallways, USIS® employees from other areas of the building asked what the fun was all about—and found themselves laughing, too!
After the session, Suzanne Masters, supervisor of the group of now-merry medical professionals, remarked, “This was awesome. A great stress relief, especially at this (holiday) time of year.”
Weeks later, Suzanne reported that her staff was still laughing! Very good, very good, yay!
Members of Suzanne’s staff added: “Very good feeling—laughing! Love it. Ha Ha Ha!”
