Laugh … It’s Good for You

Laughter can be an effective ‘mini workout’.

Research from Stanford University in California shows that laughing hard for just 20 seconds doubles your heart rate for about 1 minute afterward.  That’s the same result you’d get from 15 minutes on a stationary bike (though you won’t burn as many calories).

Laughing hard not only exercises your heart and lungs, but also works the muscles in your chest, abdomen, shoulders, neck and face!  So go ahead and Laugh – It’s good for you!

Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy!
