Humor Can Save Us!

Starting a new business is a challenge in so many ways. The ups, the downs, the new things to learn, particularly the technical stuff, the sometimes delicate interpersonal communications, the need to be "out there" promoting the business, products and services, and still taking the time to relax and play. Laughter seems to help release tension, doesn't matter if the joke is about myself, current circumstances, or hearing something funny on the radio... it just feels good to have a laugh. When I was a therapist I studied some styles of therapy that encouraged "release" through laughter and sobbing. They both seem to help me personally, though laughing hard feels so much lighter during the process. It gets back to the body, being fully present, and taking care of ourselves. Peace, Peace, Peace.
