Edinburgh’s month of laughter. Can it translate to the workplace?
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe started in 1947 and has been providing laughs ever since. Laughter opens the mind and makes us more receptive to new ideas and more likely to learn. Research has shown that true laughter can have a physiological effect on triggering the release of endorphins, encourages teamwork and builds lasting relationships, when was the last time you heard your employees have a good giggle in the workplace?
The effects from laughter can create dynamics in the working environment that can influence teamwork and build relationships like the Edinburgh festival comics have with the crowd. So, try connecting with a colleague through laughter and see the wonders it can hold in that short space of time.
