Creative Stress Releases

Creative Stress Releases

Often one of the hardest questions I ask clients is to name the top 10 things that refresh them or “fill their tank” back up.

It is rare to have someone be able to rattle off 10. Some, even with lots of encouragement, have a hard time doing so.

Depending on whether you are an introvert or extrovert, what refreshes you may look drastically different. Then of course each of us is unique.

What do most of us share? Laughter. For some of us this will be best experienced in a group or with friends. For some on our own.

There are many proven benefits to laughing. I love this little article:

Ok, so I worked hard for you all, lol. I’ve tried to find some funny things to share. What’s funny to me may not be what strikes your funny bone though. Here’s your homework:

Set aside at least one time this week to enjoy something funny - a funny friend, some hilarious youtube videos, some cartoons, a comedy. Let yourself laugh. Let go of some tension - remember that even with a long “to do” list, laughter is brilliant and wise.

Perhaps you are going through something heavy - a loss, a huge transition. Laughing even now is not disrespectful or inappropriate. Humor and ‘black humor’ serve us well.

So - there is always the funny cat video!

How about those adorable baby videos?

Want a recommendation on a funny movie? Here’s a list by Rolling Stone:

With so many health and well-being benefits with none of the pain of running a marathon, why not intentionally plan for more laughter???

You know I love to hear from you - if you want to share a link to something funny I’d love it!!!

Let’s end with this lovely Irish Blessing:

Until next week,

Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
