Laughing to health

First of all, I would like to welcome everyone to this new blog. My blog will cover fun medical fact, as well as trick, and exercise that you can use in your everyday life. I want this blog to be educational, and practical . But I also want you to share your health concern, and be able to answer it. I will cover topic as broad as nutrition, medecine, chiropractic, accupunture, natural remedy, diet, exercise, massotherapy, stress, meditation...

Since it's my first post,  I will start on the light side of thing. Let's talk about laughing. There as been many study over the year, talking about the benefit of laughter. Among the benefit that was noted, we have, prevention of heart disease, decrease stress, and the hormons related with stress, boost immunity, relax muscle, decrease pain, and even weight loss . According to a study, presented by American scientific at the 14th European congress on obesity, laughing  15 minutes a day, increase the heart rate by 15-20%, that translate to an average of, 10-40 calorie loss a day, and 4 pounds after a year!!! Let's not forget also all the effect on the mood, for ourself, but also on our relationship, with our family, friend and co-worker.

So the exercice for today is: LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH,  at least 15 minutes, and this should make you feel better, and if not, well keep laughing, and at least, you will be 4 pound thinner in 365 days!!
