Oh Dog! DeDe here with another beauty tip! My goal is to make you look and feel your best.
This week’s tip: Laugh out loud!
Nothing feels better than to share a laugh with a friend, right? Why is that?
When you laugh, you’re stretching muscles throughout your body. Your pulse and blood pressure rises too. More oxygen moves through your body.
Sounds like exercise, doesn’t it?
And you get the same benefit. A researcher by the name of William Fye found that you get your heart rate up faster through laughter than through strenuous exercise. Another researcher by the name of Maciej Buchowski found that 15 minutes of hearty laughter burned 50 calories!
Laughter is also attractive. Victor Borge said, “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” And it’s true! Everyone wants to know what’s so funny.
Just make sure you don’t fall into the trap of enjoying laughter at the expense of others. That is harmful to them, and it most certainly does NOT make you look attractive.
So make a point to enjoy some laughter every day. It’s one the best ways to use that essential beauty product- a smile!
Have a great week!

Willow giggles and rolls over kicking her legs. I bees happie girlz! She smooches DeDe and they giggle together.
Oh Willow! I have the best fun enjoying a laugh with a friend!
So true … we especially like to dance while we’re laughing too 😉 oh how saturday nights have changed! http://wp.me/p1m5Gv-1EI

We get plenty of laughter around her as I am pretty funny and my new sister is always amusing us!
The dogtor says lots of good health in your home! BOL!
One of the many reasons I love my bird – she laughs all the time 🙂
In in turn has you laughing no doubt!
Great post – yes, I need to laugh more. I spend a lot of my time being irritated and grrring at my new fursis at the moment. Mum says she can’t help being little and I was annoying when I was small. I shall try and laugh instead of grrr.
One of the best uses for YouTube is to find funny video clips and watch them. I go for old Conan show clips.
You’re SOOOO right DeDe……we all like smiley faces more than frownies that’s for sure and I’m lucky because my parents love to have fun so there’s lots of smiles and happy sounds ’round my house!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Lots of good health there! BOL!
fifteen minutes of laughter, can you imagine.. c
It’s easy to do around here. There’s always someone doing something ridiculous!
an atmosphere of laughter! so healthy! c
We SO agree with you. We LOVE to laugh and THAT is why we LOVE Blogging and BLOGVILLE. There is always at least 87 laughs to be found here.
Ain’t that the truth!
We love laughing out loud, too!!! It is really good to your health and you’ll get much longer life if you laugh out loud every day at least once!!! You always have a lovely smiling face on, DeDe! Yes, I agree that sharing laughter makes people much happier! Have a lovely Sunday, DeDe! 🙂
You too Kevin! BOL!
Thanks, DeDe! You’re right, we always just feel better after a nice, big, hearty laugh!
BOL!!! Nothing feels better than a hearty belly laugh!
I think humans laughing feels as good to them as us wooing!
Us old folks here laugh a lot at ourselves and the silly things we do…so we stay in good shape. Laughter makes a body feel good for sure. Chancy keeps us laughing too, he is a funny little dog. Great post! Hugs and nose kisses
True DeDe! And that is exactly why dogs are the beast healers in the world. 😀
I love this message! It’s so very true. Especially the last part about not laughing at the expense of others. One thing that I follow are the four agreements and one is ‘be impeccable with your word’ – any action must fall inline with this and I never feed badly. I love laughing. I love laughing at myself. I love being happy.
Dede, that’s great advice. What about hugs and snuggles?
What great advice DeDe!! Had to laugh now because at the end of your post there was an advert of some old lady pulling the skin off her face!!
Thanks to Maya & Pierson, I experience joyful laughter every day. 🙂

Laughing is one of the reasons I watch Jay Leno’s opening monologue. I always get a few laughs before I go to sleep. I watch a little longer if his first guest is a comedian.
