“It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.”
Life is frequently unexplainable and it will always be a bit absurd. “Existential silliness” is an attitude that allows us to embrace life’s absurdities and turn them into a source of entertainment and humor.
You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm;
It’s okay to be absurd, ridiculous, and downright irrational at times;
Silliness is sweet syrup that helps us swallow the bitter pills of life;
Never underestimate the healing power of silliness and absurdity
Never overlook and opportunity to act silly and have fun
Acting silly is one of the primal pleasures.
Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.
Most of us would be upset if we were accused of being ‘silly.’ But the word ‘silly’ comes from the old English word ‘selig,’ and its literal definition is ‘to be blessed, happy, healthy and prosperous.’
Always laugh “with” others, never “at” them.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE PEOPLE YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL THE MOST CONNECTED TO ARE THOSE WITH WHOM YOU CAN BE SILLY IN FRONT OF AND JUST LET YOUR GUARD DOWN.
Studies show that having fun and being silly:
Makes us smarter
Balances hormone levels
Gives us more energy
It is being able to peer at the edge, contemplate the roughness of the line without stepping over it. This is why being constantly silly is not for everyone.
Don’t be afraid to join in. Silliness doesn’t judge you, and always welcomes more laughter.
You can’t be serious all the time and spend your entire life trapped in the cycle. You know what will help you break the monotonous cycle that we get stuck in? A little silliness.
We shouldn’t be afraid of letting down our barriers and being who we really are.
Embrace your stupid, geeky, crazy or funny side, and do it without a care in the world. Honestly, try it, there’s no better feeling in the world. Being silly makes you laugh, it might even make others around you laugh, even if they are cringing inside.
Let’s embrace our not-so-perfect side every now and then with a little lighthearted silliness.
So how can you add more silliness into your life?
Find moments to dance spontaneously. When you are sat in your car at a set of traffic lights, when you are cleaning your house with the music on, or when you are in a club and feel like getting your groove on.
Be your true self. Silliness doesn’t have to be forced. Just be yourself, instead of trying to hold back, and you will find those moments of silliness occur more often and more naturally.
Don’t be afraid of judgment. If someone sees you acting like an idiot and they make a comment, ignore them. Show them that you are 100% comfortable in your skin. If you let other people get to you and worry about everything you do in front of others, you won’t have much silliness in your life.
Laugh more. Set a goal to try and laugh more, and to try and make other people laugh, no matter how silly you like. Those hilarious moments where you laugh so hard it hurts are wonderful.
