News headlines got you down? Running out of toilet paper and patience?
Have you put your fantasy of doing stand-up comedy on hold?

The Capitol Hill Village Wellness Café is back in a new, virtual format!

The inaugural on-line, free CHV Laughter on Call session will cover a much-needed health topic in these trying times: Laughter!

Laughter Therapy and its many forms calms and reassures. Direct health benefits include lowering stress hormones, releasing endorphins, bringing more oxygen to the lungs, preventing heart disease and even burning calories! Laughter is proven effective in improving the quality of life for dementia patients and their caregivers.

Zoom Virtual Platform Zoom software is required, wearing shoes to the session is optional.

This will be a facilitated, interactive session, and members will be encouraged to practice basic improv techniques, including storytelling.

Members with a sense of humor, willingness to share memories or moments from their lives, a desire to learn techniques of stand-up comedy, and/or those simply in need of a good belly laugh are encouraged to attend.
