HOW YOU CAN USE HUMOR TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE?
As it's been said before, humor is indeed the best medicine. It's a wonderful way to escape from negativity and to find your way to a place of joy. It is also a gift you can give to others to help them move to a place of joy. It may take practice, but it will be worth it. Try it and you'll be convinced.
I used to have a very stressful job as a social worker. The way I defused that stress was to engage in humor with a colleague of mine. It was a wonderful stress-buster. It provided us with unending laughs. This can also improve your physical health. Any time you can alleviate stress, your body will become more relaxed. This will provide a boost to your immune system that will lessen your chance of acquiring disease. You will be amazed at the results.
If you can't think of anything funny at the present moment, think about humorous anecdotes from your past. No matter how dark your lives have been, you have all experienced the lighter side as well. For most of you, that has been the predominant case.
My own life has been one filled with challenges. I am a survivor of a traumatic childhood. I am also a person who has faced persecution as a gay man. I have recovered from serious depression. I am a recovering alcoholic and a recovering sex addict. In spite all of this, my life has largely been a positive one filled with much joy.
I have learned how to look at my past and to embrace the darkness in order to move into the light. It has simply been a matter of letting go of that which has haunted me as I have exorcised my demons. It has been a rewarding pathway to freedom. You can do it too.
Don't be afraid to be spontaneous or silly. It doesn't really matter. A silly giggle is only one step away from cascading belly laughs.
Use your imagination and inspiration to come up with outlandish ideas. This is what I have done in my series of satires. Anyone can do it with some practice. Don't hold back. You can do it.
Like anything in life, the key is to practice that which you wish to possess. You will reap whatever results that are a consequence of your thinking, doing, or being. Why not take a look on the lighter side? It will pay great dividends. Trust me. If I can do it, anyone can!
