How does this mood-boosting exercise work?

In the video, she describes a short exercise which you can do to lift your mood.

She starts the video with simple instructions...

Ok, just do what I do...

Then, you proceed to mimic exactly what she does in the video. So, what is the exercise, exactly?

What's the exercise?

You say ha 55 times, literally.

Ha (1)..ha ha (2)..ha ha ha (3) ha ha ha ha (4) ha ha ha ha ha (5)...

You start by saying "ha" once and then on the second attempt you say "ha" twice (ha, ha).

On the third attempt you say "ha" three times (ha, ha, ha) and on the fourth attempt you say "ha" four times (ha, ha, ha, ha). You continue this routine all the way through ten attempts, saying "ha" a total of 55 times, which will sound like genuine laughter by the time you finish.

That's it!

It's the volume and frequency in which you say the word "ha" that mimics the sound of laughing towards the end of the exercise.

What do you think about this?

Do you think it works and would you try it to test it?
