The police are laughing

50 police personnel joined the laughter therapy with the Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Club movement at the Johor Police Contigent Headquarter, Jalan Tebrau recently.

Dr. Madan Kataria and members of the Johor Bahru Happy and Joyous Club paid a courtesy visit to the headquarters, when more than 50 police personnel turned up in the late morning for an hour of laughter led by the famed ‘Laughter Guru’.

Dr Kataria said, “We can laugh for no reason, no jokes, no humour.  Laughter is generated through exercises in a group coupled with childlike behavior and eye contact”.

He added that benefits of laughter include reducing stress, creates emotional well-being, promotes peak performance, enhances creativity and build team spirit.
