Relieve Stress - Don"t Take Yourself Too Seriously!

In order to relieve stress, sometimes it's important to "lighten up" a bit.
Most of us tend to take ourselves entirely too seriously and, as a result, open ourselves up to unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Are you finding it difficult to smile these days? You're not alone.
Many of us are experiencing new levels of stress due to the economic downturn and resulting financial hardships.
Let's face it, some of us are just wired differently.
You just may be serious minded by nature.
Serious issues like religion, politics and science fascinate you, while the thought of reading a fiction novel for the fun of it or watching a reality show on television is an utter waste of time to you..
Would people describe you as having a dry sense of humor? When was the last time you let out a hearty laugh or giggled until your sides hurt? Are you all work and no play? Do you find it hard to let go and enjoy life? If so, it may be high time for a healthy dose of fun to help ward off the stress and doldrums that try to gain a foot-hold during tough times.
Even if your stress levels are sky-rocketing, a little "silliness" may be just what the doctor ordered to lighten your stress load.
In fact, it's a well-known fact that laughter can help heal illness and disease.
Even if you're not ill but you suffer from regular anxiety due to stress, taking time for a little dose of fun can help put an end to cycle of stress, anxiety and depression you face from time to time.
Laughter is one of the best ways to relieve stress because it's healthy, convenient and free-or at least cheap! You can add more laughter to your life by following a few of these suggestions: Make Time for Good Old-Fashioned Entertainment.
There's no shortage of funny movies or videos, not to mention endless re-runs of "I Love Lucy" or "The Three Stooges".
While you may consider it a waste of time-if it makes you laugh or even smile, it's beneficial.
Spend Time Laughing with Friends.
Catch a movie with friends or go to a local comedy club.
Do you like games? Most people would say "no"-but a good game of Pictionary or charades with a few friends is always good for a few laughs.
Good times with good friends is a great way to relax and relieve stress.
Cultivate a Sense of Humor.
Make an effort to shift your attitude to find the humor in life.
With a positive attitude, circumstances that would normally cause you stress or irritation can become amusingly absurd.
Learn to laugh at yourself and when life throws you a "curve ball"-make a choice to find the humor, shake it off and move on.
Make a point to relieve stress by seeking out laughter and fun instead of waiting for it to come to you!
