Benefits of Humor

Emotional Stability Humor is beneficial. So what exactly is humor and why is it beneficial? Humor for me is anything that makes me laugh or anything that amuses me.

There are several videos as examples of humor on this page. Some may be funny to you, others not so funny.

Benefits of Humor: Humor Can Bring You Out of Slumps

Throughout our lives, even the most seasoned zen masters have moments where things just aren't going as well as they usually are. Perhaps you are driving to work and your leg cramps up. Maybe you are visiting the dentist and the dentist is picking at your teeth, and their hand slips and your gums get stabbed - ouch! Maybe you are asleep and your dog gets restless during the night and finds the need to jump on your groin. Owie. Yet at the same time, things like this are funny and humerous. When things like this happen, take the time to look back and reflect and find it in you to laugh at yourself. When you find things aren't going well, reflect and find the humor in things.

Benefits of Humor: Humor Comes in Many Forms

Everyone lives in there own different area, comes from a different background, and haa a different degree of intelligence and education. Therefore, certain things that are funny or humerous to one person may not be funny to another person. A person who is interested in sports may find it funny when certain things happen in a basketball game, such as Shqauille O'Neal shooting a free throw or seeing Charles Barkley fight Bill Laimbeer. It is important to understand all of the forms of humor.

Some people follow wrestling and know who the wrestlers of the WWE are and are able to find relative humor to that environment. The main thing is to understand those around you and their backgrounds. Knowing this will help you use relative humor to what will make them laugh.
