Why Laugh More?
Laughter has the power to reduce stress and heal the body. There are many ways to reduce stress: exercise, listen to music, read, and prayer/meditation to name a few. Laughter is often not thought of as a way to reduce stress. However, laughter is medically proven to reduce stress, help muscles be less tense, the body feel more relaxed, and the mind more open while giving an overall feeling of happiness and well-being. It's even proven to help reduce/block pain and heal the body of diseases by multiplying the good cells that attack bad cells.
Why Stress Less?
Happier, healthier, and less stressed people are more productive. People suffering from high stress levels have lower engagement, are less productive and have higher absenteeism levels than those not working under excessive pressure, according to research from professional services firm Towers Watson. In today’s work environment, people are working long hours, under enormous pressure to perform, and often given more responsibilities than they can manage. The results: 77% regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress and 33% feel they are living with extreme or chronic stress.

Thank you so much to Lyndy for coming out to address our staff as we prepared to kick off the 2017-2018 school year. His presentation "Laugh More, Less Stress" was fabulous. The combination of magic & comedy was perfect. Our staff was attentive to his message while smiling & laughing. Eula ISD truly appreciates his time & message.
Red Lick ISD
Red Lick ISD is a small east Texas school; however, the staff is a quality staff. I wanted to do something special for them. I had heard Lyndy before and was so impressed about how he could bring a bring a group to realize how important they are in the lives of children. He delivered! There was humor which resulted in tremendous laughter. There was entertainment in the form of magic and participatory activities. And, there was truly a serious message delivered concerning "stress" and the release of stress. It was just great! The staff is still talking about the presentation a day later.
International Technology Education and Engineering Association
Lyndy provided a wonderfully uplifting and fun way to close out our conference at the awards and recognition program. Our attendees appreciated his message and his exhilarating delivery. The bottom line is that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the awards and recognition program because of his witty, fun, and interactive presentation.
MGM Benefits Group
Our employees are still laughing and talking about Lyndy speaking at our companywide meeting. He gave us a much needed laugh (that actually lasted the entire hour) and insight into reducing stress. His humor was right on the money and well received by all. We expect to see him for round two next year.
My decision to bring in Lyndy proved to be a great success. After the presentation, I was met by teacher after teacher who wanted to thank me for getting the speaker. Not one person left the room without a smile on their face. Needless to say, I believe that Lyndy has set a wonderful tone for the new school year… I am extremely pleased with the results LaPoynor ISD got from having Lyndy speak at our convocation and I would highly recommend his services for any administrator wishing to boost morale in their district.
Lyndy spoke at the Texas Rural Education Association Summer Conference which is were I first heard him! He was awesome so we secured him for our school. Teachers were coming up to me saying "OMG, thank you so much" and one teacher had tears in her eyes from laughing so hard! He was spectacular! He arrived early, was extremely professional in action and speech and connected well with our audience. He had them engaged the entire time he was up! If you ever need someone to spread his name, I will do that because I believe in what he did for our faculty and staff!
Lyndy did an excellent job. He arrived early and we were set up and ready to go before the audience arrived. Great audience participation would highly recommend him for any audience. It was great to see a group of 500 educators laugh until tears filled their eyes. The message was received wonderfully by all the schools in Leon County. I have received texts from every superintendent in our county thanking me for finding such a wonderful speaker for our opening inservice.
What a fantastic, fun, and uplifting start to our school year this year with Lyndy's program as our kickoff event. Lyndy took the time to ask questions prior to his arrival so he could weave the "local lingo" into his performance. The magic tricks caught the attention of our staff and his small town stories that often paralleled our own opened the door for him to weave in the meat of his content. His prior conversations with our administrative staff with regard to our focus for the year then "magically" appeared in the programing to support our goals. The memories and shared experiences of that morning gave us visions to conjure back up as our in-service week progressed. It allowed us to laugh again together.
The goal we had when bringing in Lyndy to speak was to give our employees something different than what they usually get with the Health Safety and Environmental Week events in the past. We wanted something they would want to attend and have a good time. He not only met that goal, but exceeded it. I have had a number of people tell me that they really enjoyed his presentation and that his presentation was exactly what they needed. One person told me that he has worked at this company for 40 plus years and this was the best HSE Week event that he has ever attended. I thank Lyndy for being patient with us, after the late start and then microphone troubles he didn't let that slow him down and the presentation went off without a hitch. He was exactly what we were looking for and I hope that we can bring him in again.

Sam Houston Electric Cooperative
We certainly enjoyed having Lyndy at our all-employee meeting. I honestly thought it would be a real challenge to get our folks to laugh at 8:30 on a Monday morning. He not only made us laugh, but we laughed hard. And his message of relieving stress with laughter was well received. Feedback was great, and the mood stayed positive all day. It was a good day and very successful meeting. Thank you Lyndy for getting us off to a terrific start!
Lyndy exceeded our expectations for the entertainment we were looking for. He was high energy, engaging, interactive and funny beyond description. We had so many comments from our employees as to how much they enjoyed his show. I would recommend him highly to other organizations. His Laugh More - Stress Less philosophy is very much what many people in our group needed to hear.
