Happy Monday my friends,
We have been focusing our messages on changing our mental outlook but we should not forget the changes also need to happen physically. Have you ever noticed that when you are not in the right frame of mind, you also do not feel well, and vice versa? So our TIP today will center on taking care of our physical well being, as well as, our mental and spiritual.
“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” (E.E. Cummings)
Luckily, laughter is easy to come by. It doesn’t cost anything. It’s available to everyone, regardless of race, creed, or religion. It’s contagious and spreads easily. And if we can’t find something to laugh at, we can always laugh at ourselves.
NOTE TO SELF: I’m ready to laugh right now.
As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it. (Lao Tzu)
A day without laughter is a day wasted. (Charlie Chaplin)
Health does not always come from medicine. Most of the time it comes from peace of mind, peace in the heart, peace of soul. It comes from laugher and love. (Essence of Life)
Laughter and a sense of humor are good for emotional, physical and spiritual health. According to Paul E. McGee, PhD, “Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.” The ability to laugh at your own mistakes is associated with mental flexibility and the ability to shift perspective. This can be an invaluable tool to leading a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
This message is not about laughing off mistakes and doing nothing to make it right, but to accept it and not let it bring you down, where it not only cause physical harm, but mental and spiritual as well. Make peace with the error and remind yourself to move forward and do better next time. Let’s all laugh a little more and love ourselves and others a little harder as we continue our path in becoming that stronger, healthier person we were meant to be.
Laughing is and always will be the best form of therapy. (Positive Outlooks)
Wishing everyone a happy and fun week.
