“Having it all” isn’t quite as easy as it would seem, and seeing you only live once, it would be a crying shame to spend that limited time wallowing in a misery of your own making. Of course, life throws you curves and a certain amount of stress is par for the course, but Kevin Daum at Inc. has a few ways you can start helping yourself find a balance that works all the way around.
1. Freedom From Negativity
Cynicism and age seem to go together. No wonder since the longer you live, the more you see to make you cynical. But just because naysayers are everywhere doesn’t mean you have to buy into their ugly nasty world. No matter how bad things get, I always manage to keep a sense of humor about me. There is plenty of real trauma out there so there is no need to add to the drama of the day.
Path to Freedom: Make humor a priority. Most negative attitudes and actions are excellent fodder for comedy. Running a constant satire in your head will help you turn an angry fit into a roll of the eyes and a smile. My favorite tool for ridicule of a bad situation is creating limericks.
