When You Need A Laugh Look Around For the Best Perspectives
Sometimes when I wind up a long day, or when I am starting a new one and needing a second cup of coffee, I look up favorite quotes to set the mood for the day. The idea is to start with a smile.
Here are a few from Health.com that hit the spot. Try them when you need them and keep collecting more for future reference.
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough!”
A friend from long ago who was very adept at whipping up parties and getting everybody involved used to say this all of the time. Judging by the many zany things he did it was obvious he believed it and it always worked.
"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
Actually, chocolate can make life better. Dark chocolate may lower your risk of heart disease by reducing blood glucose and bad cholesterol while boosting levels of good cholesterol. The reason: Chocolate contains compounds called flavanols, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
"As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists."
This pretty much sums up the argument for eating more healthy fats, right? Just do the follow up research to make sure the fats you are eating are healthy.
"I'm so unfamiliar with the gym, I call it James!"
Ellen Degeneres gets credit for this one.
"A diet is the penalty we pay for exceeding the feed limit."
This quote should probably be posted on the fridge to slow most of us down.
"A goal is a dream with a deadline."
That’s another quote for the fridge. When you give your dreams deadlines you are helping them really happen.
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”
This is one that rings true. My best moments have always happened when I was able to help someone else. Getting is fun but giving is wonderful.
"Don't suffer from insanity, enjoy every minute of it."
Sometimes you have to laugh at what life throws you!
"Dogs have masters. Cats have staff."
If you don’t believe this you should meet my cat. She absolutely believes she is in charge. And if we had a dog he would know it too.
A little laughter goes a long way to start and end the day. If these quotes work for you, keep on looking for more. Good perspectives always help.
