Laugh Your Way to Health & Happiness

Leave a comment

Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.

-Albert Einstein-

A recent study revealed that on average, children laugh 300-400 times a day. Adults laugh a mere 15-18 times.  Somewhere between adolescence and adulthood, we have seemingly forgotten our innate desire to vocally express silliness and joy through laughter, and starting today, it’s time to laugh your way to health and happiness.

You already know that a good sense of humor, a positive attitude, and the support of loved ones play a vital role in overall health and wellness. Add to that frequent laughter, and you have one of the quickest, cheapest, and most essential ways to unleash the child within, bond with others, and increase your own vitality.

One of the major benefits of laughing on a regular basis (none of this 15 times a day mumbo-jumbo) is the release of endorphins. Many people associate endorphins with intense physical activities, such as running, but a well-placed deep belly laugh provides the same mental and physical benefits.

Perhaps you already infuse your daily with hearty doses of laughter, and if so, kudos! If not, consider the multiple health benefits listed below as added incentive to laugh as loud and as often as possible:                      laughing_couple

  • Reduce stress
  • Increase memory
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Oxygenate and improve blood flow
  • Boost Immune System
  • Improve Mental Health
  • Release Tension in the Body
  • Strengthen Social Bonds
  • Boost Energy

Approaching both life and eating with a sense of laughter creates a feeling of enjoyment and pleasure. It reinforces the idea that daily focus on healthy living and clean eating is energizing, joyous, and positive. After all, feeling healthy and looking great is FUN!
