Global Belly Laugh Day

Tomorrow, January 24 is Global Belly Laugh Day. According to Belly Laugh Day Founder Elaine Helle, the day is about celebrating with the people in your life, past and present, who laugh with you and help you laugh and smile.

The time for the Global Belly Laugh Bounce is 1:24 pm local time. That is when everyone should throw arms up in the air and laugh out loud. Maybe it can be heard around the world.

According to Jennifer Cline, laughter helps with:
Lowering blood pressure,
Reducing particular stress hormones,
Increasing vascular blood flow and oxygenation of the blood,
Working out the diaphragm, abdomen, respiratory system, face, legs and back,
Increasing alertness, creativity and memory, and
Increasing memory and learning.

Discovered a dubious personal achievement when I Googled images for "Global Belly Laugh Day" and found my picture on the first page. When I clicked on it, the link was to my last year's post. The good news is that it made me laugh and that is what the day is for. Go ahead, laugh out loud and pass it on.

If you need help getting started, this short video should help. LINK
