Day 10 (1.14.15) THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS!!
GLOBAL BELLY LAUGH DAY 2015 is just 10 short days away. Don’t worry; you still have plenty of time to get in shape. I’ll be giving you simple tips and great warm-up exercises for the next 10 days to guarantee a FUN and memorable experience!
THE GOAL: January 24, 2015 at 1:24 pm, wherever you are, let out a great big BELLY LAUGH! It’s that simple.
HISTORY: Started a few years ago by Elaine Helle to encourage people who need it to go ahead and laugh even if they may not feel like it, it is now a holiday celebrated around the globe.
YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT! Do it alone, or on the phone. Do it with friends, at work or at home. You can even have a party. Just be sure your laugh is hearty!
LET’S GET STARTED: If you have ever attended a LaughwithSarah session, you know that I start with SMILE PUSH-UPS. It’s a great way to begin to get your cheeks in shape, because even though the goal of GBLD is, of course, a great big BELLY LAUGH, I promise, if you are really laughing from your belly, your cheeks are going to get a work out, too.
A BONUS: As you stretch your cheeks and let the corners of your mouth turn up into a smile, you send endorphins to your brain, which actually makes you feel happier. If you really work hard, your cheek muscles might hurt – which means great exercise in addition to all that happiness!
Follow these simple directions and you’ll be on your way!
- Smile a great big smile
- Make a straight face
Repeat step 1&2 above 10 times.
CONGRATULATIONS! You’re on your way to happiness, better health, and an award winning belly laugh for sure!
Note: Making a straight face may get increasingly difficult. That’s okay. Spontaneous laughter is also acceptable!
In the coming days you’ll receive all the tools you need to share your wonderful laughter with everyone around the world. There will be contests to enter, how-to videos, photos, quotes and more – so check here every day and get ready to LaughwitSarah for Global Belly Laugh Day 2015!
