How to stop taking life too seriously

How to stop taking life too seriously

04 Feb 2023 by Ted Escobedo   3 min read

Many of us long for the carefree days of our youth when being silly was normal and nothing really got to us for long. Then, as we get older, we grow more serious. (Cue ‘Puff the Magic Dragon’). If you would like to rediscover your fun side, consider trying these strategies.
•Focus on the good
When things do not go as planned, focus on the unexpected benefits rather than the outcome and ask yourself: “Will this matter 5 years from now?”
While life does have serious moments, there’s a lot we can let go of and accept it for what it is.
• Remember that you’re not alone
Keep in mind that no one else has life figured out any better than you.
• Don’t engage in comparison
Comparison can lead to feelings of unworthiness. Comparing ourselves to others steals any semblance of joy, as we start to live life as if it’s a race and become too serious about acquiring things and people that don’t accentuate our life, experts say.
• Create opportunities to laugh
Find the humor in day-to-day life. Instead of hours of news shows, watch comedies or funny videos, or hang out with funny people.
