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.

I am a qualified laughter yoga teacher and to enjoy going round delivering laughter sessions which are suitable for all age groups.  Do contact me if you would like me to run some sessions. genny@confidentqueen.co.uk

 

 

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.
