Angels can fly because they take things lightly – Anonymous

I believe everyone on this earth knows or have met someone who just takes things to serious most of the times – the classic tight-jawed sourpuss who takes everything with deathly seriousness and never laughs at anything. No fun there 🙁 (stay away from me.)

True some events are clearly sad and not occasions for laughter, but don’t carry an overwhelming sense of sadness or delight. Most fall into the gray zone of ordinary life, and they give us the choice to laugh or not. If all of this sounds similar to you, here are some ways you can use to lighten up or to help someone else lighten up.

  • View your life in context. While we might think taking the weight of the world on our shoulders is admirable, in the long run it’s unrealistic, unproductive, unhealthy and even egotistical.
  • Be less serious. Realize that while your ambitions may be noble, being overly serious about them weighs you down and lessens your chances for achieving them. So it wouldn’t hurt to smile once in awhile.
  • Deal with your stress. Stress is a major impediment to humor and laughter.
  • Dress less seriously.
  • Keep a toy on your desk or in your ride.
  • Laugh at yourself. Share your embarrassing moments. The best way to take ourselves less seriously is talk about times when we took ourselves too seriously.
  • Hang around children and emulate them. They are the experts on playing, taking life lightly, and laughing.

Cheer up Dominica ❗

(AP) – Chaminda Vaas captured five wickets for 61 runs to lead Sri Lanka to an historic first win in the Caribbean; defeating West Indies by 121 runs with 6.4 over’s left in the opening test on Wednesday.

Resuming on 96 for one and needing 437 for victory, West Indies tried holding out for a draw and was bowled for 315 at Providence Stadium. World-class off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, who bowled for most of the final day helped in with three for 112.

In a tense final hour Vaas bagged both final wickets with the new ball. He forced Jerome Taylor to edge a delivery to second slip, then four overs later and about 15 minutes from stumps, he got Daren Powell to loft to mid-off where Muralitharan grasped a stunning, one-handed catch over his head to provide Vaas with his 12th five-wicket hauls in tests.

Vaas, named man of the match, took 8-109 overall and scored a half century. Sri Lanka lost 1-0 on both previous visits to the Caribbean in 1997 and 2003.
