Belly laughs and Giving Back

Two pillars I love #HaveFun and #GiveBack, what a great combination!

I was at a comedy show before Christmas and I honestly was laughing so hard I wanted the comic to stop because my stomach hurt so much. You thought I was going to say I peed my pants but thankfully I had that under control! It was such a fun night out with friends and family I knew I had to create an HMC event and get everyone out to laugh.

WHY?

Laughing truly is a natural healer. It triggers the release of endorphins that promote an overall sense of well-being without all the crazy side effects pharmaceuticals can have. Plus it tones the abs and burns calories. That’s a major selling feature right there but the list goes on:

7 Health Benefits of Laughter

  • Lowers blood pressure. People who lower their blood pressure, even those who start at normal levels, will reduce their risk of stroke and heart attack. … 
  • Reduces stress hormone levels. … 
  • Works your abs. … 
  • Improves cardiac health. … 
  • Boosts T-cells. … 
  • Triggers the release of endorphins. … 
  • Produces a general sense of well-being.

I’m sold on laughing but what about giving back? Did you know that giving back also has health benefits? Yes it does, in addition to strengthening community, learning something new and making a difference, giving back also can Improve your health: Yes! it is actually good for you. Studies have shown that volunteering makes people feel physically healthier, helps manage chronic health conditions and lowers stress!

Well then, it just makes perfect sense to laugh more and give back on a daily basis to improve your health. Sounds better than going to the gym!

So please join HMC on Tuesday, Feb. 26th at Rumor’s Comedy Lounge for a night of laughter and giving back. All proceeds of the evening support the HMC Sharing Circle Endowment fund with the Winnipeg Foundation that supports women’s causes in Manitoba. Together we can be happy and healthy while making a positive difference in our community.
