Laughing Our Stress Away

The February WeMN event was all about appreciating our membership!  It was such a great event that we wanted to make sure to share some of the takeaways with those who couldn’t make it.

We started out the evening event with networking and some great food from Amalia LLC!  The sangria, empanadas and plantains were out of this world!  A huge shout out to Amalia for the wonderful food sponsorship!


After getting to know the other members in attendance, we heard about the great things happening at WeMN in 2017!  Did you know that this year is the 10th anniversary of Women Entrepreneurs of Minnesota?  We will be finding great ways to celebrate throughout the year, so be sure to join in on the fun and watch our social channels for more information.

Now it was time for the fun to begin!  Sarah Routman from Serious Giggles introduced us all to the wonderful power and benefits of Laughter Yoga.  That’s right, I said laughter yoga!  We reduced stress, got to know one another, got out of our comfort zone, and had a ton of laughs.  Sarah started by telling us a little about her and how she got started, then went on to share why laughter is so important.  Did you know that children laugh about 300 times per day, where adults are considerably less with only about 4 laughs per day? That is such a crazy difference and laughter has so many great side effects! The Mayo Clinic sites 7 different benefits, short and long term, for adding laughter to your every day routine.

We learned how to do SmileUps and you can too with this great YouTube video.  If these don’t get you giggling…I am not sure what will.

Smile Ups 

If you tend to be a person who loves to laugh with others and you want to start your week off right, Sarah also invites all WeMN members to join her each Monday for a FREE laughter call.  Get your week started relaxed and ready to tackle the world ahead.  You can learn more about those calls here!

This was a great event and we hope to see you at the next WeMN event!
