As you probably know by now, I'm a co-creator of "The Do Something! Tour" (c) with my friend Nicky Marshall. The Tour is about helping people in the audience work out simple solutions to everyday problems and irritations so that they can leave the event with an action plan for change.
After much thought and consideration we decided to try to make the Tour and it's work as funny and light as possible. It was a difficult call because you would never want anyone to think that you were trivialising the things in life that upset them, but by the same token we've realised that the heavier and deeper you get into problems the worse they become. Whereas on an evening where much laughter is shared amongst the wisdomness and inspiration we get better results and feedback.
This taught us that most people don't want to take ordinary life problems too seriously, they want to feel light and energised and able to deal with them. If you think about it this makes sense, the lighter you feel the easier it is to lift yourself above your problems and see the road ahead without them. The more miserable you are the bigger problems become, until the point where a broken fingernail or ladder in your tights, scratch on the car or red wine on the tie, become unendurable in the greater scheme (or should I say mess) of things.
So if you want to come to a Do Something! Tour event or workshop, or listen to our Radio Show on Paramania Radio, remember that there will be a lot of laughter and giggles shared to add that spoon full of sugar that makes the medicine go down oh so sweetly.
After all, laughter is the best medicine!
Wishing you happy days, peaceful nights and giggles.
