Make ‘Em Laugh, Make ‘Em Think

Thursday 22 April 2021.
11 – 11.45am.
This event will take place online.


The Staff Carer's Network Presents... 'Make 'Em Laugh, Make 'Em Think: How to Keep a Positive Mindset' in collaboration with Laughology.

It’s April, we’re slowly coming out of Lockdown, but the pubs are still shut, I’m seeing the same 6 people and it’s still very difficult to get toilet roll!

You could forgive anyone for telling 2021 where to go.

Which is why this fast paced fun and illuminating 30min session delivered by Lead Happiness Consultant, Dave Keeling, may be a timely shot in the arm for anyone who is having wonky thoughts and behaviours, who may struggling to find the energy and good humour to push on through in their current situation or who just simply wants to have a laugh.

Whatever the reason this interactive session will not only provide tips and tricks to enable people to think better thoughts and make more positive choices but will also explore in a variety of ways:

  • The Circle of Control.
  • How to get a dose of happiness.
  • Curiosity and collaboration.
  • How to access your humour triggers.
  • The secret to motivation.
  • And why Dave doesn’t like the word stew or casserole and don’t get him started on Tagines!
