Time and time again I hear how important it is to be present. Often we can get so caught up with trying to be present we struggle further. Trying to quiet the mind is no easy feat. We are stimulated all day and making the thoughts stop rushing can be tricky. For today, I offer a solution.
Meditation and mindfulness are amazing tools. Many studies have been done on the importance of practicing both. Instead of jumping into that and cursing yourself for having such a frantic mind. Why not try being present in a different way?
The rest of this post will contain funny images or videos. I recommend you take some time and enjoy them. Like a meditation all you need to worry about is breathing. Since humour is objective what I find funny you may not. If at the end of this post you did not even have a chuckle then go find something that will make you smile. Being present doesn’t always have to be such serious business.
If you feel like you want warm and fuzzies instead of a chuckle check out my past post on Joy. The following video featured in that.
“Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness – the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.” – Sean O’Casey
