Whether it is repeats of Friends or maybe one of the current crop of TV funnies such as Twenty Twelve, Facejacker, Benidorm or Celebrity Juice that tickles you and has you crying with laughter; those 30 minutes on the sofa can be a real health booster.
New research has revealed watching 30 minutes of telly that makes you laugh is very good for you. Having a good giggle not only helps to relieve stress but researchers also believe it is an excellent calorie burner.
While you sit back and have a hearty chuckle, experts say you can burn as many calories as you would in a short gym session. Though do bear in mind, coupling your comedy TV time with a snack attack, will significantly negate the positive health benefits!
Have a jolly Easter!
