I’ve been talking to people lately and one thing has been a common theme. They don’t laugh at work. That amazes me because I laugh all the time. Â I laugh at me, I laugh with my family, I laugh at my dog (he doesn’t love that) and I definitely laugh with my customers. Partly because I LIKE my customers. They are fun people! But also because I find it isn’t fun to take things completely seriously all day long. There are too many difficult, stressful, sad things at work to be serious.
So I highly recommend:
Look for things to make you laugh. Â I subscribe to a Podcast called Jews Telling Jokes. They are the oldest jokes there are but they at least make you roll your eyes. Â That counts as exercise, right?
Talk to people who make you laugh. Â Call fun people at the beginning of your daily call list – then you will be someone else’s fun person to call!
And if you find a joke that makes you laugh, send it to a couple (KEY WORD – COUPLE) people who would agree.
At the end of the day, you will have laughed. Â And since most people don’t like to laugh alone, you shared your laugh. Â And that person shared, and then next, and so on. Look what you started!
