One Year of Laughtercise at My Online Schooling

Laughtercise is one of many online wellbeing lessons we offer in My Online Schooling's Junior School, where the focus is humour, health and harnessing happiness. Laughter is the best medicine, as it gives our brains and bodies a much needed boost. It relaxes us from the inside out, giving us a feel-good attitude to help send our worries away. 

We're sharing how our pupils feel about these one of a kind wellness lessons to celebrate one year of Laughtercise at My Online Schooling. But first, here are a few quick facts about laughter and its benefits:

The Magic of Laughter - Quick Facts:

  • We laugh with our whole bodies, so we use up a lot of energy
  • It's not only humans that laugh, for instance, chimpanzees and rats have a sense of humour too!
  • Laughter lowers our stress levels, which keeps our hearts healthy
  • We bond and communicate through laughter


Laughtercise at My Online Schooling

Learning every day throughout the week is hard work, so it's important we find time to relax and unwind. During our Laughtercise sessions, our Junior pupils stay connected with humour and giggles. They tell stories through creative movements and sounds. All seriousness is left at the door so their imaginations can run wild.

With the help of our instructors, Aaron Betesta and Harriet Brady-Jackson, our Laughercise pupils break up their week with a bit of a wiggle and a dance - there’s chuckling, sweating and silliness all around.

We reached out to our pupils to find out what has them so tickled about Laughtercise. Here's what a few of them said:
