Laughology team reveal their happiness heroes

We each have a personal ‘happiness guru’, someone we turn to for good energy and positive vibes. Perhaps, it is the friendly station manager at your local tube, the cheerful cashier at your local shop or maybe even a family pet, full of love and life at all times. It can be anyone who makes our smiles, bigger and our laughs, louder!

We couldn’t throw the UK’s first #happinessHeroes2016 celebration party without asking ourselves this question: Who is my happiness hero?

We’ve done a lot of thinking and the wonderful team at Laughology are super excited to share our #happinessHeroes2016 with you!

Kerry Leigh

My Brother Darren. He made me laugh a lot when we were growing up and he always used humour with kindness even when he was my older teenage brother and I was hitting puberty and there was plenty of ammo for him to tease me!

Stephanie Davies. At the risk of sounding like a total drip here I'm nominating Steph because I have gained so much personally and professionally from living the Laughology models as well as teaching them.

Dave Keeling

The Stormtroopers. I've always loved Stormtroopers, ever since my first viewing of Stars Wars back in the 70's. They, along with that trilogy are synonymous with my childhood and remind me of the excitement, adventure, fear, awe and wonder that life can bring (not to mention they are on the naughty side!!)

Feel the Farce

Vicky Rowan

Spike, my postman. Spike, my postman is one of the happiest people I know.  He's always cheerful and chatty and infects everyone he meets with happiness.  All the Laughology team love Spike and I think I can say the same for the whole of Ashtead.  Thanks Spike for always brightening our day.

Stephanie Davies

Norman Wisdom and Patch Adams. Both have inspired me hugely to understand more about the power of humour and laughter.

Reema Kalra Agarwal

Michelle Obama. I admire her for her wonderful energy, humour, positivity and style. And most importantly, her ability to inspire people around the world and make them smile and laugh in these turbulent times!

McCall Dempsey. I have never met McCall but she is a friend’s friend and I’ve been reading her blog for a few years now. McCall has been through a lot in recent times and I admire her for her resilience and ability to stay positive and cheerful regardless of the curveballs thrown her way. Her Instagram feed never fails to make me smile!

Juliette Yardley  

Victoria Wood. For me I would say Victoria Wood for her northern sense of humour and observations of the 'everyday'.

Woody Allen. My other would be Woody Allen, I love his 'angst and neurosis'!!!!
