Finding Humor

I saw this article on one of the magazines I was reading in the office and I would like to share them with you.
It’s possible to laugh more if you:
  1. Read joke books and other funny reading materials. Watch funny movies and appreciate the humor. Catch shows of people who are funny, either on radio or TV.
  2. Remember not to take yourself too seriously.
  3. Run away from negative, grouchy people. Surround yourself with fun-loving individuals. It is more inspiring to hear someone reply to the question “How are you?” with “Here I am, enjoying the life to the fullest!” rather than, “Here I am, surviving.”
  4. Always count your blessings. Look at the doughnut, not the hole. See the glass as half full, not half empty.
  5. Relist the present, whatever it may be. Be totally in the moment. There is always something funny to behold. Don’t be too focused on the past or the future.
  6. Spend time with children. They are very good teachers of laughter. They can do the most mundane things and make you laugh, especially when they start imitating their mentors.
  7. Keep intact a portion of yourself and let it stay as that of a 6-year-old. Let your child-like sidekick into your laughter module. Make it part of your own way of coping with any turmoil in your mind and heart.
  8. Protect your happiness. We get stressed when we want to be right and press our point. But do you always want to be correct, or do you always want to be happy?
