If you mentally filled in the blank with a synonym for derriere, we want you to know that that’s not what we were thinking! Because if laughing caused that, then comedienne Amy Schumer might quite literally be booty-less not booty-licious. Did you know that laughter actually reduces streSS?

It releases endorphins to relieve stress and relax your body for up to 45 minutes. In fact, even the mere anticipation of laughter boosts health-protecting hormones. Go ahead, try it and make this a laughing matter!
