There’s nothing like taking a 15 break at work (or at home) and watching some funny videos! Some of the best self-care includes laughing. Laughter decreases the release of stress hormones and increases endorphins. No wonder why people feel more relaxed after a good laugh!

You may be wondering, “what does this have to do with my nutrition?” Well, nutrition and emotions are very tightly tied together for most people; you may notice this in yourself. Many times, when we are feeling overwhelmed with emotions or lacking self care, our nutrition becomes unbalanced and it’s difficult to reach nutrition goals. Spending time laughing is a form of self care! So, watching videos like these can help brighten your day, keep you relaxed, and assure that your nutrition stays on track!
