Menopause for thought

Meno_people
At Laughology we like to help people to think differently about the menopause. It can be an extremely challenging time for a significant proportion of women and the people they live and work closely with.

If I said to you that I had a sore arm what would your immediate thoughts be?
Why are you telling me?

What if just talking about it makes your arm feel worse?
What if I say the wrong thing and your arm falls off?

Laura Drury: Advising her other half (which is completely different to nagging) to cut down on his screen time

For many, many months I have been advising my other half (which is completely different to nagging) to cut down on his screen time. As we embarked on our family holiday last month I suspected that I should do the same. Why? Because I am concerned about the damage our screens have on our wellbeing.

The menopause does not just affect the person going through it. It impacts on families and workplaces too

The menopause does not just affect the person going through it. It impacts on families and workplaces too

There are many things a 29-year-old woman doesn’t want to hear. ‘Would you like me to park for you’ and ‘I think it’s a grey hair,’ are just two. As is ‘you are is menopausal’.

A close friend of mine suggested a while ago that we did something a bit different. “How do you fancy climbing Mount Snowden in the middle of the night to watch the sun rise from the summit on the summer solstice?” she asked. It seemed a good idea in the middle of winter when we booked it. Last weekend, me...

Laura Drury: AI – what’s your automatic response?

Laura Drury: AI – what’s your automatic response?
Laura Drury LR Blog
Whilst eating dinner with family and friends recently we happened upon the subject of ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (not unsurprisingly as it’s my husband’s favourite topic) whereupon I started to feel a little anxious. You see my ‘internal’ fight or flight, reptilian brain, response to ‘AI’ is: ‘It’s scary, it’s going to take all our jobs before taking over the entire world...

Laura Drury met her guardian angel aged 28! ...well, at the very least he was an incredibly kind man...
When I was 28 I met my guardian angel! ...well, at the very least he was an incredibly kind man... My acting career (which of course had been non-stop) was dwindling, I was about to become homeless and my love life was well, pretty similar to my acting career - non-existent. I faced the prospect of moving out of London...
