Laugh at Yourself for Health

A new study says one of the keys to be being happy, and therefore healthy, is the ability to laugh at yourself.  I’m not surprised, laughing at yourself is one my “rules”.

I wonder, is laughing at yourself when you’re making mistakes the same as laughing at yourself because you think you’re funny?  (My wife always seems to say “You really think you’re funny, don’t you?”)  No matter, laughing at yourself is now officially determined to be good for you.

Keep this in mind as you struggle with healthy eating (we all struggle with it, you know).  Keeping a positive attitude when you’re not doing as well as you’d like will help in the long run.

The next time you’re feeling guilty for the eating the whole thing, have a laugh at yourself for going so overboard.  Who knew you could pack away 3 pieces of fried chicken?  And a scoop a mashed potatoes.  And a biscuit.

Then resolve to stop at one serving next time.  And leave a drumstick for me.
