Laugh At Work Week
LAWW is a week dedicated to building more fun into our workplaces. Work should always have an element of fun.
Fun keeps us engaged, increases our creativity and helps us to problem solve. However, we know that you are a very lucky person, if you can get your work done and have fun doing it. As supervisors, leaders, owners and team members, we need to think of ways to make our job and our workplace more fun and exciting, especially in chaotic times.
Beverly’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Laugh At Work Week:
- Post a cartoon of the week or Murphy’s Law Of Our Workplace – is there something that relates to the pressures that the team is facing at home or at work?
- Develop your own Humour First-Aid Kit and fill it with your favourite jokes, clippings, and stories
- Schedule a funny team challenge to beat the afternoon slump
- Use funny Post-It Notes
- Send a cheerful card or email to a co-worker in need
Laugh Through It
Being able to laugh about our situation and ourselves helps us to release the tension, regain our perspective, accept that which we cannot change and experience joy. Not only all of these, but it also gives us the physical energy and mental resilience needed to survive and thrive. Many of us just need to be given permission and encouragement to use our sense of humour more freely.
