Stress is a Laughing Matter: Using Humor as a Coping Strategy with Paul Osincup
When we're stressed out, burned out, or checked out, people often say, "You need to laugh it off" or "Have a sense of humor about it". That's great, but nobody ever tells us HOW to do that. In this session, you'll learn evidence-based strategies for developing your sense of humor into an intentional mindfulness tool to reduce stress and boost your well-being and productivity. Humor helps us build resilience and increase our capacity to cope with life's stressors. Using a combination of proven strategies & research from positive psychology, neuroscience, cognitive behavioral techniques, and improv, and stand-up comedy, you'll leave with numerous actionable ways to start using your own sense of humor as a mindfulness tool!
