It is almost as if the mind lifts with the darkness retreating. The light re-enters our lives as if it had been gone when in fact it is always there.
It is within us all to keep the spark, the flame, the light bright and clear so when days regain their dayshine we revitalise what has been spent.
So. The days are getting lighter and brighter and so is our view of life in general.
Oh, happy days!
Sprouting winter flowers and spring bulbs showing their necks, after pushing through the cold, hard cover. They will not let it stop them!
There are many lessons to learn from nature instead of sulking and retreating as if the world is all against us.
Nothing withstands pure determination, courage and will-power, this is what brought us back to lighter days. Remember who you are.
Remembering who we are when we come out of hibernation and allow ourselves to be as strong as we know we always were.
There is too much darkness in our world and it is easy to get caught up in the media and news. Start looking for good news, for seeds, for great adventures, and for the beauty in every day and everything that surrounds us.
In all this chaos of light and dark, of what if and then else, we can let our own dramas rest and find the true source of empowerment in our own renewed lightness and the day’s sunrays. There is nothing like letting go to boost vitality, confidence and self-worth.
Greatness is not about bathing in admiration and attention, self-love and self-care is not egotistical and narcissistic, empowerment is not physical force. Everything springs from you and your integrity with yourself as well as the grace and gratitude you show yourself and others. You shine in multifaceted dimensions when you are you in all your glory.
We are all the sources of goodness and when we share laughter together it all makes sense.
Laughter brings lightness just like the longer days bring attention to the fingerprints on the windows.
When practicing Laughter Yoga we become who we are deep inside and bring our spirit forward into the daylight where we are part of the great image, part of nature itself.
I wish you brightness and lightful days.
With Love, Friendship, Honesty, Kindness, Health, Hope, Goodness, Grace, Gratitude, Understanding, Faith, Peace, Forgiveness, Patience, Diligence, Love, Blessings and Joy

How exciting that this year is the year for the second Playing Human Conference in London, after 3 years in the waiting!
The early bird fee for the 3 days is £150 and was available until 31. January 2023. However, as I have been delayed in getting UnitedMind News ready, the early bird fee is extended until the end of the week, until 5. February 2023.
If you know you will be coming to the event in London how about booking now and save £100.
Full details will be updated on www.laughteryogaconference.co.uk where you can also find information about your stay and how to get to the venue.
Programme will be updated shortly so please watch this space.
I cannot wait to see you all this summer! It has been long underway.
For more information about working together, please contact Lotte on on mobile/WhatsApp +44 (0) 7736341717 or email email@example.com.
Laughter Yoga in the media
Laughter Yoga is the target of many media and news channels, and it is with great excitement that we will be filming with an international crew on 8. February in London.
If you are interested in joining us and be part of the laughter session which will be filmed at a location in Central London please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition I enjoyed the first day of February in the Radio X studios in London at The Chris Moyles Show where News Anchor, Dom, was introduced to Laughter Yoga as part of his 50 things to do when you turn 50.
Feedback was that ‘the listeners absolutely loved it’. Thank you for asking me in the first place.
Furthermore, Deb Waters is writing a piece on Laughter Yoga for Chat Magazine, and Poppy Nathan is writing for the Pint of Science blog.
If you would like to speak about Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy on your Podcast, news channel, entertainment programme, or for an article or other media ideas, please contact me on email@example.com.
Laughter Yoga for sustainable living
When it comes to Laughter Yoga and adopting a daily practice it is like anything else, it is easy to let it go.
Laughter Yoga is not a marathon or something you do for statistics, it is a way of changing your life and creating lasting results.
This also means that there may be days when it is okay to indulge in dramas that do not include Laughter Yoga.
However, with a daily practice you really do change and you become present to your own stuff playing out as well as suddenly finding it easy to ‘snap out of it’.
Laughter Yoga is easy and has the most profound effect on your body, mind and spirit. This leaves you feeling on top of the world and able to handle the most severe and serious challenges in an empowered and often positive way.
You must remember, though, that it is not about forcing the laughter through, but moreso playing with the events and the pain you experience, not from a mocking perspective but from a playful ‘what-if’ I choose something else than a tantrum angle.
Everyone has an abundance of strength to recover from life’s ups and downs, it is simply a matter of picking the tool that is suitable and sustainable in the correct brain-pocket.
When you change your perspective it rolls into all areas of life which is why starting in a group at work is ideal as such a great proportion of day-time hours are spent with the colleagues, even when you work from home.
Working together is key to personal, professional, individual and joint success for the business you are part of daily, you own or someone else’.
When we laugh together we work much easier together.
I have seen the change in people who have joined in one workshop, and people who have come back for more, as well as people who have trained. The sparkle, the smile, the light, the posture, some changes are subtle but they are all visible.
For more information about our workshop and training programmes please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or call to have a conversation on 07736341717.
I hope you will follow and like us on these platforms and help us grow awareness of Laughter Yoga, joy and kindful living.

Laughter Training – best courses!
The 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training runs in London 5 times a year with Lotte and Mel. We bring you an exceptional journey into the depth of laughter and fun, as well as exploring aspects of yourself and your plans for bringing laughter to others.
Teaching Laughter Yoga Leader Training started for me in 2007 in St. Albans, and since then I brought the training to Durham and online in 2009, to London in 2010, to Blackpool/Preston in 2015 and wherever your team takes me.
However, with Leader Training in London and Teacher Training in Hemel Hempstread, as well as the new model for self-study, being really popular courses, I have decided to place my focus on those locations and hope to bring you here.
This means that your chance to train with me in St. Albans, Durham and Preston is only once in 2023 on the dates listed below.
The great news is that there is plenty of opportunity to train with me in London and Hemel Hempstead.
Now is the best time to book your spot on one of the 2023 courses!
