Local laugher Richard Jones knows that laughter fast-tracks happiness and he is inviting you join him to have a great laugh and make the world a better place.
On Wednesday March 20 it is the United Nations International Day of Happiness and Richard has been bringing together schools and the community to Laugh-a-Minute for Mankind.
‘Everyone knows a good belly laugh makes you feel great, but with all the stresses of life, we often forget to flick on that internal happiness switch inside us, and that switch is laughter,’ said Richard.
Laugh out loud
The Laugh-a-Minute for Mankind initiative has been a great hit with Bay FM 99.9 listeners and local schools over the last five years since it started.
‘You don’t laugh because you’re happy, you’re happy because you laugh,’ said Richard with a giggle.
‘Laughter’s contagious effect is a magical gift only mankind can share. It is multi-lingual and when you get Bay FM 99.9 broadcasting a minute of pure laughter, they’re orchestrating a gigantic happiness boost for all listeners no matter what gender, colour, creed, age or nationality. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the International Day of Happiness,’ he said.
Laugh time: 1pm
‘Whether at home, in the workplace, even in the car, it’s so easy to get involved. Just tune in to Bay FM 99.9 on Wednesday March 20 at 1pm and instead of hearing the news, you will be guided into a minute of joyful laughter.
‘Soon enough laughter’s charm will take over and you and those around you will be laughing along with the Bay FM community all the way to your happy place. Don’t just take my word for it, give it a go.’
