Why you should have 10 Belly Laughs per day –
Laughter helps the brain regulate the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine. Many studies have shown that 10-15 minutes of laughter a day can burn up to 40 calories and that a sense of humor can protect against cancer and heart disease.
Here are 7 additional benefits of Belly Laughing:
1. Enhance oxygen intake to stimulate the heart, lungs, and muscles.
2. Increase endorphins released in the brain.
3. Ease pain.
4. Decrease the body’s stress response.
5. Stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation.
6. Strengthen the immune system.
7. Improve mood.
