Laughter Matters!

This year's keynote address for South Carolina EDTECH was done by Kent Rader, known as the “World’s Cleanest Comedian and Speaker.”  He helps people and associations learn and experience how laughter matters in reducing stress and building quality organizations. 

Key takeaways:

You are the architect of your own stress: You control your thoughts and even though they are your thoughts that doesn't mean your thoughts are always accurate.

Hang out with happy people and make them leaders in your organization.  Everyone knows your attitude and mode can be impacted by those around you.  Influence your attitude by hanging out with happy people.

Do something every week that makes you laugh.  This is just a good idea.  You feel better after laughing and you start to feel better in anticipation of the activity you know will make you laugh.
