An event in Merseyside will teach people how to laugh their way to a healthier life.
The Liverpool Comedy Trust says laughter creates a "feel good factor"
A laughter clinic being held at Everton Health Centre on Wednesday is all about laughing for no reason to reap the physical and emotional benefits.
Registered charity, the Liverpool Comedy Trust, has organised the event and hopes this brand of "laughter yoga" will help people relax and de-stress.
Trained laughter therapist Stephanie Davies will take the one-hour session.
She is also a professional stand-up comic.
"The session is great fun which incorporates playful techniques to encourage laughter," she said.
"This in turn makes you feel good, reduce your stress levels, and release inhibitions, thus cheering you up."
The Liverpool Comedy Trust says laughter releases endorphins which create a "feel good factor".
Gillian Miller, Chair of the Liverpool Comedy Trust, said: "Liverpool schoolchildren have already been experiencing the benefits of laughter therapy, as three schools have taken part in sessions as part of a health and well-being project.
"The health benefits of this scheme are tremendous, plus people who come along will really have good fun."
