Wellness Tip from the Health Office

Laughter and your health

Did you know that even thinking you are about to hear something funny will boost your health? Laughing creates good physical changes like a mini workout but without the chance of physical injury! Every 15 minutes of laughter burns about 50 calories. Good giggles helps you fend off the harmful effects of stress and increases your blood flow, it increases your oxygen intake and slows your heart rate. Laughter is not the complete solution to mental and physical health but it certainly helps. So laugh on.
