Laughter is a Good Workout


laughEveryone enjoys a good laugh! However, have you thought about how good a laugh is for you? Laughter is a great workout for your body. By having a good laugh, your diaphragm is getting a great exercise by contracting your abs as you laugh. It can also work your shoulders thus leaving your body totally relaxed afterwards. By laughing, you are also relieving stress and boosting your immune system to fight off the virus. Laughter can also give you a great physical and emotional release making your body feel cleansed of all your daily stresses.[1]

 

Laugh out loud today! Watch a funny show, read a funny comic strip, or laugh with a good friend over fun stories.
