Time to Put on Your Party Pants

Chances are, you know a lot of people.  Some of them you work with, some are family or friends, and many of them are simply acquaintances.  Of all of the people you know, how many would you consider “uptight”?

I don’t know about you, but I know quite a few uptight people that seem to have lost their sense of humor somewhere along the way. In a day and age where we have more to do than time to do it, lots of stress, and competing priorities, having a sense of humor isn’t a nicety, it’s a necessity.

Did you know that people with a sense of humor live longer, get sick less, earn more, and are actually better looking?  Research has proven that laughter boosts the immune system, relaxes the body, and even protects the heart!

It’s time to put on your party pants!  Lighten up, laugh, and have some fun.  Whether your find your laughter through being around friends, going to comedy clubs, watching funny movies, or just being goofy, don’t underestimate the power of a belly laugh and a sense of humor.  If you live in or around Austin, check out the Moon Tower Comedy Festival.

If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.

Most of us are taught this simple lesson when we are kids. Unfortunately, it is not always practiced once we are adults. The human tendency to attribute our behavior to our intent and others’ behaviors to the type of person they are is referred to as the fundamental attribution error. Someone runs a stop sign, and we think they are a jerk. We run a stop sign and “oops”.

Regardless of our intentions, people only know what they see through our actions, and we only know what we see through the actions of others. In between our intentions and our actions lies a chasm.

How do you bridge the gap between intentions and actions? Try the following strategies 👆👆

Sometimes we inadvertently make our life a whole lot more difficult than it needs to be. It’s time to help others help you. #mindfulmonday ...

Ah, difficult conversations. You know, that conversation with your partner, co-worker, boss, or family member that you just don’t want to have.

While there is no magic formula that applies to every tough conversation, I have found that the following 7-steps makes it much easier. 🗣️

When we can separate our identity from our abilities, we are able to learn from failure, rather than assign judgment. #mindfulmonday #growthmindset #mindfulness #personalgrowth #success ...

  1. It is great to know that having a sense of humor makes me “good looking.” The video is great, thanks for sharing. The ending was fantastic.

  2. I love how freely he danced around! Without a care of what other people thought about him. And that he knew to bow is hilarious! Thank you for sharing that video. Saturday night I was up late with my 2 teenage daughters and I was overly tired and got all giggly with them. I love it when that happens.

  3. Put on your party pants!!! Want to see you wearing yours the next time you speak to our group! (I’ll wear mine if you’ll wear yours!)
