A Story of Reinvention,

Persistence, and Laughter


(JAMESBURG, NJ) In 2010, Noreen Braman—who had already reinvented herself in 1997 after a contentious divorce—was reeling from a corporate downsizing, dealing with a economic recession of historic proportions, and facing her own midlife issues. Soon  her  skills as a strategic communications professional, humorist and performer would send her in a new direction.


By the end of that year, she became a certified Laughter Yoga Leader, had her mind blown at a conference called “Can Humor Save the World” and studied the Psychology of Laughter (Here's an article by the teacher of that course) at Rutgers University. In 2012 she added certification in Laughter Wellness, studied the Science of Happiness through  UC Berkeley in 2016, joined the Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor (AATH) and has been presenting laughter for the health of it through her Smile Side of Life Laughter & Happiness Club presentations ever since.


Noreen credits Dr. Paul McGhee’s book “Humor as Survival Training for a Stressed Out World" as well as Linda Richman's "I'd Rather Laugh: How to Be Happy Even if Life has Other Plans for You," for helping her understand the importance of humor and laughter to all humans. With the physical and emotional health benefits that come with humor, laughter and mindfulness, Noreen deals with her fibromyalgia and thyroid disease with humor, reminding us all that yesterday’s problem can be today’s funny story.
