Warning: You can burn 1.3 calories per minute!

Yesterday I attended a laughter yoga session. And as expected I ended up laughing — what else!

How I wish we’re altogether doing the face warm-ups. It will be fun making-faces with you!

Laughter Yoga is a concept of unconditional laughing; it doesn’t rely on humor and jokes. We can laugh for no reason! Done regularly it can lift our moods and prevent depression.

However, there is more to Laughter Yoga than this; than laughing without reason. We can laugh for a reason! Reasons like praising God and catching all His blessings!

Try looking up, hands outstretched to heaven and laugh. Feel the energy of praise you sent above and feel too the love energy He sends back. It feels good, right?

It is also said that we can burn 1.3 calories per minute of laughing and 10 minutes of it is equivalent to 30 minutes of jogging. Now I’m interested.

Let’s lose the first 1.3 calories then! Please follow me.




Are you still okay? Because I forgot to tell you that you can breathe.

Now that we’re done with laughter yoga let’s watch this video. But first straighten your back and tuck in your tummy.

Based on research, children laugh 300 to 400 times in a day while grown-ups laugh only 10 to 15 times. Where are the lost laughters? Ask the brain. The brain that first comprehend humor before laughing — or not.

Now do you still want to be a genius?

I see your brain working. Ahaha!

  5. Oh I so agree with this post! Laughter is so vital to health and well being. What’s interesting is how often it is suppressed in adults–often by other adults. Thank you, bended spoon!

      That is so true without them saying a word. I find it hard to laugh when I see a raised eyebrow or blank stare. Poor inner child — mine and theirs, who wants to crack and roll.

    I like that laughter burns calories! I had a play date with my six year old grandson this afternoon and we were laughing so hard at a video game that I needed to get a tissue because I laughed so hard I cried. Gosh! Did that feel great! 🙂

      Wow that’s great way to destress yourself — the toxins came out immediately! He’s the miracle baby, right? Truly he is a miracle and a blessing to you! And it’s a miracle too that you can play video games — just because I do not. lol

    I am laughing! The video . . .so funny! And maybe the funniest part for me was when you ask if we’re okay because you forgot to tell us we can breathe. hahaha! I love to laugh and laugh a lot. Probably am way too silly, but my daughter learns better if I am silly and having fun, than serious and stern. 🙂
