Word of the Week: Laugh!

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”
~Audrey Hepburn

Preach, Audrey. I couldn’t agree more.

Have you ever experienced a good laugh, maybe so good that you cried?

It’s. The. Best. Ever.

Laughing

Laughter is known to:

  • Create a sense of well being
  • Reduce stress
  • Help release endorphins (the bodies natural pain killers)
  • Boost immune cells
  • Help with heart health
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Work those abs!

My clients know that it’s a big deal to infuse fun and laughter daily. We usually get a good laugh or two in during our sessions. It helps make the tasks seem less daunting, and it helps change the mindset that exercise has to be serious and difficult.

Life is way too short to be serious all the time.

ACTION STEP: Find a way to laugh every day this week. Watch funny YouTube videos, read jokes, act goofy, go to a comedy show, whatever! Pay attention to how you feel after your done laughing, then laugh some more!
