[8] Laughter is the Best Medicine with Katie Rose White

Laughter is the best medicineDo you ever feel like life is just a bit too serious? I know I do. What with so much pressure to do well at school, so many exams and the pressures of constantly being attached to social media (as well as all the usual angsty teen stuff) life for teens is harder than I think it’s ever been before. I know I feel like this and my coaching clients have also been known to say to me ‘I just feel like there isn’t enough fun or laughter in my life!’

That’s why I’ve invited Katie Rose White onto The School Success Formula today. She runs laughter workshops where she shows people how to lighten their mood and reduce stress through real or fake laughter.
