ON HUMOR

"The single best way to judge the health of a team or a company is by how much humor there is."
- Kate Ludeman, Ph.D co-author, The Corporate Mystic

======================================

Laughter is medicine for the soul. It lightens the heart, unburdens the head, and relieves stress. It cleans out the cobwebs and helps us focus more clearly. Laughter is a sign of health and will put more bounce in your life.

If you're going through a difficult time, go see a funny movie, read a funny book, or just laugh with your friends. You'll feel better and think better. Learn to laugh at yourself and the day-to-day problems of life. If you laugh every day life will be lighter. What have you done for fun this week? What have you laughed about?

Excerpted from the Bounce Back Quotient

======================================

Laugh at Yourself

There I was wearing my favorite blue suit and great looking, but uncomfortable, heels. I was almost 10 minutes into a keynote speech. As I stepped sideways my thin high heel caught in a crack where the platform came together. Realizing it was stuck, but pretending nothing had happened, I continued talking and tried wiggling the heel loose. I wiggled too much. It snapped. The sound seemed to echo through the auditorium like a gunshot. I was stunned, embarrassed, and facing an audience which in that split second appeared to be waiting anxiously for instructions from me on how to respond. I laughed. As I explained what happened and took off both shoes to continue in my stocking feet the audience laughed with me. It was that comfortable relaxed knowing laugh -the recognition that we are all human, no matter how large or small our platform.

Don't take yourself or daily mishaps too seriously. Laugh more and stress less. A laugh break can increase your focus and actually make you more productive.
