Another year come and gone, 2019 is new, fresh, and full of promises. Many pledge to get fit and take better care of their bodies each New Year. If you aren’t into gyms or it is too cold to exercise outside, consider grabbing a few friends and dancing.
Dancing is a wonderful way to work up a sweat while having a good time. If you are like most, there will be a lot of laughing involved. Research published last year in the International Journal of Obesity discovered that laughter really is the best medicine for a weight problem. Through a small study, scientists calculated that just 15 minutes of laughter a day will burn 10 to 40 calories. That is enough to shift between 1 and 4 pounds a year.
