6 Reasons You Should Take Life A Little Less Seriously

Higher Perspective

Every day, we’re faced with a variety of challenges that can bring us down and make us feel insecure and stressed out. Modern day living comes with tons of different stresses. It’s easy to get caught up in it all. But maybe you shouldn’t take life so seriously. Why?

1. BECAUSE IN A WAY, EVERYTHING IS RIDICULOUS.

Look around you. The world is full of people hating themselves and what they do, hating each other, watching stupid things on TV, taking pictures of themselves to impress imaginary people, and in the end, we all die the same way. How nuts is that? The world is a ridiculous place. Don’t take it seriously.


2. THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE ARE ALL THAT TRULY MATTER.

If you live in a city, you’re constantly surrounded by the judgmental eyes of others. Watching how you drive, what you wear, what you’re eating, what you’re doing – everything. But those people don’t matter. Only your close relationships truly matter. Screw the rest.

3. BEING RICH DOESN’T MAKE YOU HAPPIER.

According to Business Insider, money can make you happier, but only until you reach $75,000 a year. After that, the rest doesn’t actually improve your degree of happiness. And really, how that money impacts your happiness is complicated. So striving to make a ton of money isn’t going to make things better. Happiness existed before currency did. There are other ways.

4. WHEN YOU WORRY, NOTHING CHANGES.

There are reasons to worry about things, but you shouldn’t let it be a particularly prolific way of thinking. Worrying doesn’t change anything about your lot in life and the world around you. So you might just take a step back, chuckle at your problems, and then think about how to solve your issues.

5. YOU’RE GOING TO DIE.

It’s not fun to think about, but you’re going to die. So will I. So will everyone else. If you make it to 90 years old, you’ll have lived fewer than 800,000 hours. A third of that is asleep! Talk about wasted time. But you will die someday. This will all come to an end. So why the hell should you spend it being worked up about life?

6. YOU’RE A TINY TINY THING.

In the face of the immensity of the universe, we’re a rather tiny bunch of tiny things. If you’re getting worked up about life, it might be time to re-evaluate your feelings and adjust your perspective.
