Karen Belz has written for sites such as Bustle, HelloGiggles, Romper, and So Yummy. She's the mom of a sassy toddler and drinks an alarming amount of Sugar-Free Red Bull in order to keep up with her.

It’s hard to believe that Goldie Hawn is 74. Due to her bubbly personality, she seems much younger.

And speaking of that personality, she was the first to launch the #LaughingChallenge on Instagram.

She believes that during times like these, laughter really is the best medicine. In an exclusive with Entertainment Tonight, Goldie stated, “We just gotta laugh. We have to find that place that’s so healthy for you, and it’s so amazing in terms of its benefits.” With a laugh, you can change your day around. It’s also a great reminder to not take things so seriously.

The challenge is to help benefit the MindUp program, which was started by her own foundation.

MindUp bases its educational programs on neuroscience and aims to be beneficial toward children. Speaking of children, she’s missing her own grandkids during this time period. But she’s following all the rules and making sure to always keep a safe distance.

So what is she doing now that family time has been cut and movie sets have closed down? She’s been playing with her dogs and staying fit on a trampoline. That’s right — trampolines aren’t just for kids. And if Goldie can do it with ease, there’s nothing stopping you.

“Every day I have to do something,” she said. “I’ve been jumping for years.” Her philosophy is that she’d rather dance through life than slog through life, and she has a point.
