HOW DOES LAUGHTER HELP IN LOSING WEIGHT?
Laughing for 15 minutes can burn 20 to 50 calories. In a study published by International Journal of Obesity, people who laughed more each day were reported to have burned more calories. Laughing increases heart rate by 10 to 20 per cent and metabolism increases too, meaning it helps in weight loss. Laughter also helps in reducing cortisol levels. Cortisol is the stress hormone that results in belly fat. When stress level is lowered, it is easy to stick your diet and exercise routine. So, in addition to a healthy diet, add more laughter too.
