Life is too serious to be taken seriously

Through humour, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. Once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it, Bill Cosby.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Monty Python.

Life is not only about work, clients, or academic results. Our life is rapidly changing in all aspects in such a manner that some of us may not be ready for the changes. Cultivate a good sense of humour, laugh at yourself and your circumstances because what you think is clear and certain today, may well not be tomorrow. It is not about denying problems or responsibilities, but learning to cope with them in a healthier way.

“Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it, and then move on,” Bob Newhart. We all get our share of tragedies, but laughter allows us to accept that there are many things we cannot change, as well as, connecting with loved ones, temporarily stepping outside our space and time, putting things into perspective, making a stand about an issue, dealing with it, and finally, moving on.

It helps us see the bigger picture, reduce our fears, problems, and worries, and improve our attitude towards them. In short, it provides many resources for overcoming them or, at least, coping with and accepting them.

As Elbert Hubbard said and I quote: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.” The idea is to stop being serious all the time, and to face your problems and tragedies with good humour. Do not get overwhelmed or confused by obstacles along the way, by your circumstances, by how far away your goals are. It is about how to make smarter, richer, more pleasant and desirable lifestyle choices that encourage constant and hard work, a good spirit and sacrifice despite obstacles and adversities.

Laughter improves our health, for example, it relieves emotional stress and pain: “Laughter is a tranquillizer with no side effects,” Arnold H. Glasgow; “Each time a man laughs, he adds a couple of days to his life,” Curzio Malaparte.
It encourages positive thoughts and feelings, helps increase mental satisfaction by making it easier for people to cope with difficult situations, it generates happiness and improves relationships with relatives, colleagues, friends, and partners, and therefore, increases our chances of success.

Humour is very important for a healthy lifestyle, and yet, it is often neglected. Let me show you how to get started.

Please remember, don’t ever let a day go by without putting a smile on your face!
