How exactly laughing can help us to lose weight?
Being a reasonable person you were thinking how it’s going to work to lose weight just by laughing! According to a research report by NCBI, stress leads to an increase in our BMI by increasing the synthesis and release of stress hormones like corticosteroids, insulin, and many neurotransmitters to adjust our mood or stress. This all leads to emotional eating which is rich in carbohydrates such as bread, drinks, and chocolates; many of us take to up-regulate our mood. Actually, taking carbohydrates improves mood by reducing hypoglycemia because of increased BMI in stress. Here is another explanation too, Mood elevation after taking carbohydrates leads Tryptophan to cross the blood-brain barrier resulting in higher serotonin levels; a relaxing hormone. Now it’s understandable that how stress leads us to emotional eating and weight gaining. So, just laugh away your weight.
Laughter; a good exercise!
Many studies show that humor and laughter are therapies to relieve tension and anxiety. Mirthful laughter can decrease the serum levels of stress hormones like cortisol, epinephrine, and growth hormone, and that’s exactly the reversal of what stress does! So, if you are depressed or stressed and gaining weight day by day, the best way is to start with your boss; I mean brain and the rest of them will follow it.
