Enjoy a Belly Laugh!


Enjoy a belly laugh!

Not just a grin or smile, although that’s a great start.

A true belly laugh! One that originates deep within your gut and ripples out to encompass your whole body.

Remember a funny event. Recall a hilarious movie. Think of a silly joke.

Let your laughter go. With abandon.

It’s good for you.

• Anger dissolves; resentment crumbles.

• Worries disappear; stress resolves.

• Priorities realign; life is good.

Wellness Tip: Enjoy a Belly Laugh!

The Experiment: Take a deep breath. Smile. Place your hands on your belly. Open your mouth. And, then, let loose. Let out a hearty belly laugh. You may have to force it at first. But, with practice you’ll soon be a pro.

Belly laughing makes you feel awesome. Maybe you’ll want to do it again and again!

Silence Your Inner Critic: You may think you don’t have anything to laugh about. You may feel childish or silly. That’s OK. Just try the experiment anyway. You’re learning to reframe your thoughts to induce health, not the other way around.

    What I’ve learned from 2 year old granddaughter:
    Why did the chicken cross the road? Because chickens are really really really really really really stupid!
    (Now, don’t you feel better?)
