A Daily Dose of Levity

Do you ever feel like Atlas from Greek Mythology with the weight of the world on your shoulders? Certainly you are not alone. While some stress is normal, constant stress can really wear you down mentally, physically, and emotionally. That is why we encourage you to find some levity in your life every day.

Levity is defined as lightness of mind, character, or behavior. Doesn’t that sound lovely? While creating levity in your life will not make your problems go away it can make it easier to swallow.

Can you think of a time where life really had you down but someone or something got you laughing? At least during that moment of laughter you had some reprieve from the stresses around you.

If you would like more levity in your life I would encourage you to check out The Levity Project. Led by Kate West out of Bath¸ Maine, the goal of The Levity Project is to create global social change towards a world which unites in joy.

If you go to the website you can learn more about the movement and how you can participate. At the very least you can watch some videos of some of the things they have done, such as wearing silly rainbow umbrella hats and holding still in the middle of Chicago while people walk by wondering what is going on. While this may seem silly and childish, that is the point. It is harmless fun that gets    people smiling and laughing.

When you are smiling and laughing you feel better and that is always a good thing.  So make this small commitment, try to let yourself smile and laugh more…today!
