Laughter!

It has been such a strange year and with everything that has gone on, it can be hard to stay positive. We just wanted to say we get it too. The way we see it though life is all about balance. When we feel anxious and disconnected about events going on around us it can be hard to see what to do as individuals. At Metabolic Balance, we obviously love the balance that the right food can bring to you. But balance can also be achieved in other life enriching ways. We wanted to share one of our favorite quotes from John Cleese.

“Laughter connects you with people. It’s almost impossible to maintain any kind of distance or any sense of social hierarchy when you’re just howling with laughter. Laughter is a force for democracy”.

Laughter is one of the best therapies. It can be done by simply putting on a funny movie, calling up a friend and reminding each other of funny times, reading a funny story, watching funny cat/dog videos, or watching your favorite comedian. Even simply watching someone else laugh can make you laugh! Laughter triggers so many feel good endorphins. We like to see as exercise for the whole body from the inside out. Laughter is about connecting and balance. So do something to make yourself laugh right now. Even if you have to fake it at first. Even better get laughing with someone else! The weird thing about laughing is that the more you do it, the easiest it is to start laughing. So laugh every day. Oh and of course eat great food too!
