How could this face - er...tongue - NOT make you laugh? © Alicia Sparks
Happy Friday, readers!
Earlier this week, I gave you some information about Mental Health Month (it’s this month – May 2012 – in case you’re not caught up!) and told you that, in honor of Mental Health Month, we’d have a weekly challenge here at Your Body, Your Mind for the duration of May.
This week’s challenge was simple: Laugh!
Laughing is one of the easiest things to do and it brings some awesome health benefits: You can enjoy an improved immune system, a boost in endorphins, better sleep, more relaxation, and even distraction from laughter.
Still, I realize laughing on purpose (well, producing genuine laughter on purpose) isn’t always easy, so I gave you some examples (watching funny movies, learning a few funny jokes – you get the idea) to help get you started.
How’d you do?
As for me, I took my own advice and made funny faces at my dog.
…I let her make funny faces at me!
