Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Life provides abundant opportunities for laughter.

I am excited by the presence of a new day.

I am excited by the presence of a new day.

I know that laughter is good for both my body and mind, so I make a point of cultivating humor in my life.

Sometimes humor comes to me in flashy neon pink, billboard-style, and can’t be missed. But much of the time the laughter in my life springs from everyday things: a child first learning to kick a ball or a cat chasing her shadow.

I slow down and pay attention to what is going on around me so that I do not miss out on these moments.

If your daughter paints her face with your lipstick, you can wail about the waste or moan about the necessary clean up. Or you can laugh at her youthful silliness and grab my camera, choosing to relish this special moment.

I can choose to laugh at myself, too. By seeing the humor in my occasional mishaps, I avoid taking myself too seriously and keep minor annoyances in perspective.

Such obvious enjoyment of life makes me more approachable to others and leads to better and more productive relationships.

I let go of the idea that life must always be serious. I create opportunities to seek out people who also see the humorous side of life. I indulge in comedy often, knowing that hearty laughter makes me healthier in my body, mind, and spirit.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I respond with humor to my own mistakes?
2. Do I slow down enough to see the humor in everyday events?
3. What activity can I plan that will bring some extra laughter to my life?
