“Any practice or activity that supports reflection over reactivity, encourages feeling feelings rather than acting on them, and opens awareness to what is really going on is of benefit. Slow down, notice, and savor is a great way to build mental wealth no matter where or how. It just is. All mindfulness really is good mindfulness.” Forbes Magazine
“Very memorable, very useful, very inspiring.”
Taking humor seriously enables people to not take themselves so seriously. Developing mindfulness is increasingly recognized as a strong positive in the workplace. Mindful humor places awareness and listening not just on the individual, but on relating to those around them. This enhances common goals in an atmosphere of well being and lightheartedness.
Recognizing tensions, we often turn to humor to lighten the load, to release the stress. As a friend of mine, Wavy Gravy, likes to say “laughter is the valve on the pressure cooker of life, and if you don’t laugh, the beans may splatter on the ceiling”. Unfortunately, all too often, the humor expressed is reactive instead of responsive, doing nothing to improve the atmosphere. Rather than making fun of, positive humor is about sharing the funny with others to uplift the whole.
