A little something to make you laugh & keep you healthy

In this stressful world that we live in anything that can bring a smile to our faces or make us laugh is good for our heath - and that's official.

A laugh a day keeps the doctor away. Well, that may not be strictly true but research has proven that a good chuckle is beneficial to our health. Laughter as a reaction to certain stimuli like a joke, a funny noise, someone tickling you, something visually funny or it could even be someone else laughing that makes you laugh but which ever it is - having a good giggle is a very healthy thing to do.

True Fact: 100 laughs are equivalent to 10 minutes rowing or 15 minutes biking!

Laughter triggers healthy physical changes to your body and it will strengthen your immune system, boost your energy levels, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. The good feeling that you get when you laugh remains with you even when the laughter has subsided, helping you to keep a positive, optimistic outlook even during illness, difficult situations, disappointments and loss. And, the best part about laughter is that this priceless medicine is fun, free and easy to use.

And, laughter is also infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sneeze or yawn. If you need proof of just how infectus laughter is take a look at the video below. It's taken from a Flemish chat show - Boemerang -  it's host Erik Hartman, just can't stop laughing. And, if you watch the video you'll end up doing exactly what he's doing. It really is that infectious - take a look.


If you haven't already guessed, it's not a real chat show or a real chat show host. This clip comes from top Flemish comedy series "In De Gloria", and Erik Hartman is in real life actor Tom Van Dyck. In fact, all those involved are members of the cast. But, whether its fake or not you've got to admit it's funny, and it really does prove that laughter is infectious.

So, there you go, you've had a some great entertainment, a good laugh, a gentle work out and you should be feeling a whole lot better, too.

Now you can go off and enjoy the rest of your day.... 

...But don't forget to come back and visit this blog again soon for more laughs.
