Take yourself less seriously 🙂
One essential characteristic that helps us laugh , is not taking ourselves too seriously.
We all know the classic tight – jawed sourpuss who takes everything with deathly seriousness and never laugh at anything.
No fun there !
Some events are clearly sad and not occasions for laughter.
But most events in life don`t carry an overwhelming sense of either sadness or delight.
They fall into the grey zone of ordinary life – giving you the choice to laugh or not.
The ability to laugh , play and have fun with others not only makes life more enjoyable, but also helps you to solve problems, connect with others and be more creative.
People who incorporate humor and play into their daily lives, find that it renews them and all their relationships.
When you ” become the problem ” and take yourself too seriously, it can be hard to think outside the box and find new solutions.
But when you play with the challenge, you can often transform it into an opportunity for creative learning.
Playing with problems seems to come naturally to children.
When they are confused or afraid, they make their problems into a game, giving them a sense of control and an opportunity to experiment with new solutions.
Interacting with others in playful ways helps you retain this creative ability.
As laughter , humor and play become an integrated part of your life, your creativity will flourish and new discoveries for playing with friends, coworkers, aquaintances and loved ones will occur to you daily.
Humor takes you to a higher place, where you can view the world from a more relaxed, positive, creative, joyful and balanced perspective.
Love & Peace
