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!
