Everyday Well-Being

Make funny faces in the mirror until you laugh.

How to do it

Look in the mirror and stick out your tongue, cross your eyes, flare your nostrils - make any ridiculous faces until you start to laugh.

Why it matters

Laughter is good for your body and mind. It increases endorphins, the brain's feel-good chemicals, and it also stimulates your heart, lungs, and muscles. A good, long giggle also relieves stress and helps you relax. Making funny faces in the mirror will take your mind off any worries you might have, at least for a few minutes.

Fun fact

There are 357 mirrors in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France.
