A week-long comedy festival starting from October 23-30, 2015 in Peterborough, Canada, is aiming to leave the residents in stitches. Shelley King, a certified laughter leader says that laughter not only releases endorphins to the brain; it also reduces stress and anxiety, protects the heart and gives the internal organs a gentle massage, thereby keeping one happy and healthy.
Charmaine Magumbe, organizer of festival feels that everyone needs to have a week of just good, positive, mental health. There are varieties of events planned out for people of different ages. Throughout the week, the association will host Laughing Yoga sessions for those interested in learning how the practice can help with psychological health and wellness as well as team-building in the workplace.
