Muahahaha

Trust your folks when they said laughter is the best medicine! Loosen up and give yourself the permission to laugh out loud and eerie! And we mean really eerie, like Vincent Prince in Michael’s Jackson’s “Thriller” MV. Here’s a word of caution, do not try doing this under your colleagues’ desk unless you don’t mind having blue-blacked eyes.

Every 15 minutes of laughing (MET 1) burns 16 calories

 

Witch Ride

Awaken that inner witch in you with this broom ride move. Just remember to be nice and help the office cleaner to sweep the floor while you’re at it.

Every 15 minutes of sweeping (light effort, MET 2.3) burns 36 calories.

 

Scary Yoga

In case you didn’t know yoga has a dark and scary side too. Try out these poses if you do not believe:

Corpse Pose (Savasana)

This totally resembles the sleeping pose, all you have to do it just roll down onto your back and let your body rest with your arms out to the sides and legs slightly open.

Creepy Crawly Pose (Tittibhasana)

Please attempt this only if you have really strong arms.

 

Scary Ghost Boo Pose (Simhasana)

This pose is relatively easy as compared to the one above. Just get into a kneeling position and then lift up slightly off your heels. Next, make your hands into fists and stretch your arms out to the front as you stick out your tongue and scream!
