Positivity Life Bloopers Reel – Because Laughter is Good for YOU!

To WATCH OUR BLOOPERS REEL, CLICK “Play Button” BELOW.

Hey Positivity Lifers,

Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “Laughter is good for the soul.” Forty years of scientific studies on laughter has shown that laughter is truly is good for the heart, mind, body, spirit and relationships (*see below for infographic link). Last week we shared our recent podcast, “The Laughter Wellness Method, w/ Sebastian Gendry,” Founder/CEO of Laughter Online University and Laughter Consultants. On the podcast he shared the many health and wellness benefits of laughter.

Since laughter promotes wellbeing, we decided to release another reel of Positivity Life Bloopers. These are outtakes from our recent Quick Wins Vlog, “7 Big Whys for Outside Exercise” CLICK HERE to watch this first. During the filming we had some crazy moments and a few good laughs (little did we know, it was improving our health – hahaha)! Between our barking dog, our sluggish teleprompter, a low-flying airplane, our own ADHD brains, and an out of control case of the giggles, our VLOG creation was quite a circus that day. We hope it brings you a few grins and maybe even a few, big hearty, health promoting, belly laughs! Here’s to your health!!!

*The benefits of laughter on physical health, mental health, social health, emotional health and spiritual health.

*Laughter utilizes both hemispheres of the brain and therefore boosts creativity and togetherness.

*Laughter benefits emotional health as it releases the feel-good-hormones: Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, and Endorphins.

*Laughter connects people socially as it gives them an opportunity to validate each other and reinforce social integration.

*Spirituality is also improved because laughter boosts all of the qualities that help people to become a better version of who they are and who they want to become.

*The brain, in a state of positivity, is 28 – 33% more productive than the brain in a neutral or negative state.

*Laughter improves immune function as it helps move lymph throughout the body 10 – 15 times faster.

*Physical Benefits of laughter have been validated and documented and are reliable and sustainable (and free).

Choosing to laugh in the face of adversity is a declaration of independence that stress, anxiety, fear, and hate have not and will not win. ~Sebastien Gendry
