DE-STRESS: Why Being Silly Helps!

DE-STRESS: Why Being Silly Helps!

Be silly. Be playful. It will make your life better — it sounds so simple, but it’s true. Silliness is a huge factor in living well! Take Albert Einstein. One of the greatest physicists of all time; a nobel prize winner who developed the general theory of relativity. He’s known as a genius; a beacon of enlightened intelligence. But did you know that one of the most-published press photographs of Einstein (and some argue, the most famous press photo of any important public figure in the 20th century) shows him wide-eyed and sticking his tongue out. The shot was snapped by photographer Arthur Sasse after Einstein’s 72nd birthday party. And people love it — we all love it — because it’s an image of a serious, respected person not taking life too seriously.
