Have you ever had one of those days where everything that could go wrong did?
You set your alarm for the wrong time…
Ran out of your favorite cereal…
And forgot to wash your only fancy shirt to wear to that important meeting…
Yup – those days are not fun, but we have them.
When you want to lighten the mood, sometimes the best thing you can do is laugh it off.
How, you may ask? Keep on reading.
Change The Story You Tell Yourself
It isn’t always so easy to turn an embarrassing or tough situation around, but laughter has the power to boost our mood and change our perspective.
When something doesn’t go as planned, we have two choices.
We can either feel bad about it and let it impact our day.
Or, we can say to ourselves, “Yes – that happened, and everything is going to be okay. Let’s look for the humor in the situation.”
You Can Take On Anything
With laughter comes perspective.
Sure, maybe you took a wrong turn and got lost, or accidentally spilled coffee all over your desk…
But we’re all human, and sometimes the unexpected happens.
And you know what else? Those unexpected events usually turn out to be the best stories and memories. Being able to laugh at yourself and try again can give you a brand new sense of confidence.
“Never be afraid to laugh at yourself, after all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.” – Barry Humphries
