The Importance Of Humor In Solving Problems
Humor is a form of creative thinking.
An often neglected tactic, humor is an effective and useful way to handle most of life’s difficult situations.
Laughter tends to relax people and makes them more attentive. Due to the increased attentiveness, communication is also improved.
In fact, research shows that putting people in a good mood by telling them jokes increases their creativity in solving problems.
It makes sense right? Humor puts people in a better mood and problems are easier to solve when you are feeling upbeat.
Using Humor To Solve Problems Creatively
The usual way of solving problems involves a sequential approach. Using humor (like creativity) is an indirect or lateral way to approach problem solving.
By shifting the frame of reference from a problem, a sense of detachment is achieved. Since humor starts in the right side of the brain, the logical left side starts to quieten down. The result is a shift in perspective that will help you solve problems faster.
Instead of approaching a problem directly, laughter creates a divergence and allows the brain to make new connections. As a result, the brain offers more effective strategies and faster solutions.
Humor Builds A Sense Of Community
Cracking a joke is one of the quickest ways to get a group on your wavelength. The ability to laugh together is a powerful bond that holds a community together.
Laughing at yourself or at a situation can quickly diffuse tension and avoid conflict. Hence, humor is a powerful tool to promote better relationships.
Go ahead, smile a little today. Laugh as much as you can, it will boost your energy.
