We wanted you to have a bit of a laugh – and boy did you deliver!
People were in stitches at Blacktown and Mount Druitt hospitals, where the first laughing classes of the WSLHD Wellbeing Festival were held on Tuesday.
They lapped up the benefits of laughter: it’s contagious and infectious (in a good way!), relaxing, therapeutic and great for your facial muscles.
As well, a good chuckle boosts the immune system and cardiovascular system, and releases endorphins.
The sessions were hosted by Shari Coventry, from Sydney Laughter, a company founded by a doctor who wanted his patients to laugh more.
Meanwhile, at Auburn, our employees focused on stretching out their muscles.
Information about how to live a healthy life – as well as thank you cards for workmates – were handed out at the wellbeing stall at Blacktown Hospital on Monday.
