“In the spring I
have counted one
hundred and thirty-six
different kinds of
weather inside of four
and twenty hours.”
L – Laugh long and loud. A robust rib-rattler not only improves your mood, but also your health.
Laughing helps you stay alert, makes it easier to cope and lets you maintain your sanity.
A – Admit you’re human and laugh at yourself. People who have mastered Living 101 take their
work seriously, but not themselves. Knowing the difference gives you the keys to the kingdom.
U – Up your laugh quotient. Nothing could be more important to your health and happiness. The
average American laughs 15 times daily. Get a mega dose of Vitamin L every day.
G – Generate mirth wherever you go. Good humor is the best business and social lubricant. Make
it your mission to elicit as many smiles as you can each day.
H – Help yourself succeed without stressing out. Humor is nature’s antidote for tension. It’s fast,
it’s fun, and it’s free. No other stress buster can make this claim!
T – Take your funny bone to work. Instigate laughter on the job. Treating coworkers with respect
and a sense of mirth does miracles for teamwork and trust.
E – Embrace the notion that humor is NOT incompatible with dignity and stature. Humor is the hole
that lets the hot air out of a stuffed shirt.
R – Remember that laughter and longevity go hand in hand. A buoyant outlook may be more im-portant
than oat bran and pushups, and it’s easier to take.
