|Can you remember five letters?
If you can, then you are well on your way to finding more humor, laughter and mirth in your daily Maalox moments.
Those letters… are you ready? – are . . .
L – A – U – G – H
|Each of the letters stands for one thing you can do immediately to keep your humor up when you are down. The acronym is:
L = Let Go
Now repeat what you just said but this time, after it, say: “Ho, ho. Ha, ha. Or, hee, hee.”

You are probably laughing, or at least smiling, about that stressor.
Another thing you can do to let go of your stress is to get a balloon. Then think about some small stress you are having and blow that stress into a balloon. Get it as big as you can, then let go of the balloon and the stress you just blew into it.
