3Over­come ob­sta­cles by crack­ing a joke!

Woman's World - - News You Need Now -

Next time you find your­self in a frus­trat­ing sit­u­a­tion—say, a traf­fic jam— try to see a glim­mer of hu­mor in it, for in­stance, that you’ve fi­nally got some time to your­self! Sounds silly, but the hap­pi­est peo­ple are those who can find a bright spot in tough cir­cum­stances, re­veals re­search done at West­ern Carolina and Oak­land uni­ver­si­ties. ✤ It works! Pos­i­tive hu­mor—the kind that points out a ben­e­fit rather than high­lights a neg­a­tive—makes chal­lenges a lit­tle less chal­leng­ing, so that you come out on the other side of them with your op­ti­mism in­tact!

And sa­vor sim­ple plea­sures!

Paus­ing to ap­pre­ci­ate three good things each day— they can be as sim­ple as the de­li­cious­ness of a cup of cof­fee—helps you sail through mi­nor sna­fus. As re­searchers ex­plain, sa­vor­ing pos­i­tive mo­ments re­minds you that set­backs are tem­po­rary!
