Boost Your Energy - Tip #1 - Laugh It Up

Saturday, March 10, 2012
gives us 30 Ways To Boost Your Energy. Here's tip #1.

Laugh It Up

It's easy to get burnt out in our over-scheduled lives. Luckily, there are lots of ways to recharge our batteries on a daily basis. Laughing, for instance, can actually make you feel better mentally and physically. “Laughter is the ultimate energizer, as it increases circulation and 'happy hormones' (endorphins) throughout your body,” says Kimberly Kingsley, a counselor, energy coach and author of How to Recharge Your Life 30 Seconds at a Time. So try to get in some giggles daily. Rent a funny movie, spend time with someone who cracks you up, read comic strips or just tell a joke.

Laughing is exercise and is considered internal jogging by some experts. When you laugh, your body moves blood to your heart and lungs, boosting your energy level and making you feel better instantly.

Laughter is an instant vacation. ~ Milton Berle

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. ~ Irish Proverb

A good time to laugh is any time you can. ~ Linda Ellerbee

A good, real, unrestrained, hearty laugh is a sort of glorified internal massage, performed rapidly and automatically. It manipulates and revitalizes corners and unexplored crannies of the system that are unresponsive to most other exercise methods. ~ Author Unknown (from an editorial in New-York Tribune, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren)

    I looked at the comics but your laughing cats pics did it for me!!! I'll have to remember the laughter since I've been a bit sluggish lately!

Thanks for sharing and hope you had a terrific weekend!
