I was wondering why comedians like Seinfeld are so successful. I suspect it is because we are a tad jealous of their ability to let loose, to be over the top.
Not only does it seem like a good idea, it pays well and it makes us feel better.
Why am I hesitant to raise my hands over my head to stress a point? or talk with funny voice? Why shouldn’t I be expressive? use my voice and hands to their full extent? I’m not angry, not upset, I just want to be unrestricted.
When it is hot outside, shall I not cool off by running through the sprinkler? It is fun, it cools me off, and I’m barefoot! Laughing, wet and barefoot. Isn’t those three things the trifecta for soul medicine?
I loved telling stories to my son and daughter before they went to sleep. It was my licence to be creative, to retell the stories my own way. To be silly to the point of giddiness and sore aching ribs. Yes, I was useless at helping them settle down and go to sleep, ahh sleep is over rated, we all know that.
Really, why not be silly and fun for 10 minutes a day, 600 seconds? That is like 2 commercial breaks so break it up if you have to. Sing a silly song, make sure you memorize the words so you can really enjoy it; personally I love “If I only had a brain” CLICK HERE from Wizard of Oz, but there are loads of others “Swing On a Star” CLICK HERE is super fantabulous also.
Be silly, for your health.
Be silly 600 seconds a day and let yourself relax deep inside. The pharmaceutical companies may hate us for it, but we will laugh it off, won’t we?
I’m way ahead of you in the silly department, but I’ve had lots of practice.
