Humor Brightens the Day

Chuck Yeager was one of our nation’s greatest test pilots. He said, “Unfortunately many people do not consider fun an important item of their  daily agenda. For me that was always a high priority in whatever I was doing.”

Take a fun break in your day and see the benefits of a bit of humor in your life and workplace.Humor is a very healthy thing  to experience and it also helps you discover creative and innovative solutions to problems and challenges. The creative part of the mid is the same part that enjoys a good laugh.

Laughter comes from the surprise of a unexpected situation. For a baby it is the surprise of “peek-a-boo” for adults the surprise comes from the punch line of a joke as the unexpected conclusion is understood by the mind and it reacts with a laugh.

Take a moment and find some humor in a cartoon, comic or funny article. Take a short humor break and bring some coffee if you want. You will come back to your tasks with a new outlook. This part of the mind that is joggled by humor is the same part that gives us our “ah-hah” moments. The creative side is stimulated and we gain a fresh perspective on challenges and problems. The result is a better chance of finding a solution.

Find ways to encourage others around you. Spread a smile and bring a laugh with a humorous story, joke or cartoon. As you spread humor and good will you will make your work environment a cheerful and more productive place.

Be like Chuck Yeager and set aside some time in your day for a bit of fun.
