Laughing can help you burn those calories

I do love a good belly laugh, and trained to be a laughter leader  so that I can help  others laugh too. Every morning I do  a short 15 minutes laughter session to start my day with the feel good factor and I hope you too can do the same.

Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

Try laughter yoga

If you find it diffcult to just laugh, watch this short video on laughter yoga and use it as a great way to laugh yourself to loosing a few calories.

 

Researchers have discovered that laughing increases both heart rate and calorie expenditure by up to 20 per cent – and the longer participants laughed for the greater the effects.  Using the results, the scientists then went on to calculate that just 15 minutes of laughter a day will burn 10 to 40 calories, depending on a person’s weight and the intensity of the laughter. That’s enough to shift between 1 and 4lb a year.
