Laughter Does The Body Good


Monday, February 25, 2013



This evening, I laughed so much that my stomach actually hurts. I have one crazy family, particularly my mother and brother. With this much laughter, tears were streaming down my face and I couldn't see for a few moments!

Sometimes, all we need is a good, hearty laugh! When we are having one of those days, where it seems nothing is going right, we just need to sit down for a moment and find something to laugh about! Once more, laughter does the body good.

I read somewhere that laughter can burn up to 1.3 calories per minute. I have been laughing from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm. So, I can imagine how many calories I've been burning this evening! Also, how much stress have I relieved this evening through laughter, plus a mini-workout for my stomach, diaphragm, back, & shoulders.

Even the Bible talks about laughter. In Proverbs 17:22, the Bible indicates "A merry heart does good, like medicine..." So, get some medicine and laugh it up!

Now, I can go to bed with a smile on my face! Thanks to my mother and crazy brother! I pray my abs aren't sore in the morning! emoticon

    My husband and I went out to dinner with our 17 yr old and 14 yr old daughter and all 4 of us had one of those laughing fits right in the middle of the restaurant - thanks to comments between the girls - it was SO refreshing and afterwards my husband and I marvelled...how many other parents of teenagers have we seen laughing like that? It really is the best medicine!

    Your post was a breath of fresh air. Thank you for the smiles and giggles. Hope your abs are not sore in the morning like you said. If they are you can smile at the great workout they got. Thank you for reminding us of how not to take things too seriously and to find the humor in life. emoticon
