Using Laughter As A Tool To Overcome Social Anxiety

Using Laughter As A Tool To Overcome Social Anxiety
“At the Social Anxiety Institute, we recognize the benefits of laughter (i.e., sense of humor and comedy) to overcoming social anxiety. The inclusion of laughter in the therapy group is very helpful, and the knowledge that there are laughter clubs throughout the world can serve as adjunct therapy for social anxiety. In context of the social anxiety group, standing up and laughing about anything — nothing in particular — is a great exercise to work on self-consciousness and increase the number of endorphins in the body. With practice, you can feel differently and find it easier to laugh in public.”
