Tools – Humour

Posted on: March 27, 2010


What would we do without it?  Humour is a definite godsend.  We need to be mindful to use humour on ourselves, not to ridicule others or point out how funny they look.
We human beings are ridiculous in our antics.  If you’ve ever spent any time people-watching you know how funny we are.  Take this opportunity to be a humour sleuth and find out what is funny in the situation you’re angry about.  Think of the ridiculous.  Ask yourself, “If I was to look back at this incident in 10 years, what would I find funny about it?”  (Don’t wait 10 years, find it now!)  Next go to the mirror, look at yourself, and see how funny you are.  Find just one funny thing about yourself.  Don’t wait until later to laugh; do it now!  Humour keeps you young.  It changes the energy in any situation and it allows you to gain perspective.  Laughter is the shortest distance between friends, so why not be a friend to yourself and laugh your troubles away?
