About National Let’s Laugh Day
Observed annually around the world, March 19th is National Let’s Laugh Day.
Some studies have shown that laughter may boost your immune system, relieve tension and help you relax. Who does not need any of those things in our busy and hectic world?
Did you know that when you and a friend have those long bouts of uncontrolled laughter that end in tears and aching stomach muscles, you burn between 10-40 calories per 10 minutes? And, we have all heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine." Since laughter is contagious, go ahead and keep giving each other those don’t-look-at-me-or-I’ll-start-laughing-again looks and you’ll keep right on burning more laugh-calories--while keeping each other healthy!
"We don’t laugh because we’re happy — we’re happy because we laugh." William James
