Building on that Positive Sense of Humor
1. Bring out the child in you.
Children are naturally funny, amusing, and enjoyable. Showing up your innocent side to other people can help you develop your sense of humor easily.
Assume playful behaviors. Be open to childish and even meaningless stuffs. They may seem nothing to you, but they can totally entertain other people.
2. Think funny.
See the lighter part of every situation, rather than the serious one.
When you failed an exam, say that it was not because you didn’t study, but because you studied too well that your brain exploded with all the information it contained.
On the other hand, when you’re late at work because you weren’t able to wake up on time, say, “I know it would be traffic so I let it cease first before I went to the office.”
Upon close observation, you’ll realize that there is always a flip side to everything, so try to unravel and make use of it.
Besides making you cheerful, funny thoughts can reduce worries and anxiety that serious situations can bring about.
3. Laugh at your mistakes.
Nobody is perfect, and no one will be.
Therefore, it is inevitable that we all will commit mistakes.
When this happens to you, don’t get mad right away or blame other people.
Doing such won’t help you turn back the hands of time and redo the situation.
Hence, make fun of it instead. Yes, it may be embarrassing, but who cares? At least you know how to turn your low points upside down.
4. Be in between happy people.
Surround yourself with those who can make you laugh or can teach you how to make use of laughter as a weapon.
Adopt their culture and think the way they do.
Funny people can inspire you to be just like them.
When you get used to seeing their happy persona and hearing their lively jokes, you’d gradually develop their skills at humoring.
5. Learn to sing and dance.
During tense moments, do not worry.
Instead fill your heart and mind with cheerful emotions.
Sing to express. Dance to let go of all the worries and fears.
Life is too short to waste on being upset all the time.
6. Share laughter with family and friends.
It is always more comfortable to have fun with people close to you than with strangers.
Once in a while, go out and spend quality time together with them.
Whether it’s just a simple scrabble match or watching movies, there can always be a positive sense of humor situation that can take place. Grab these opportunities to learn.
