How To Take Things Lightly


This week’s episode is a little bit special as some of you are probably getting ready to celebrate Chinese New Year on February 8th. And because 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, this time we will be talking about our distant cousins from the primate family.

Monkeys have many brilliant qualities to emulate and each of them could be the subject of a different episode of Spirit Animal, but for the sake of today’s I wanted to focus on one specific trait: monkeys are funny. So you guessed it, we are going to talk about having a sense of humour, taking things with a pinch of salt and working on not taking everything too seriously in life.

How do you handle the moments of crisis in your life? Can you distance yourself or do you feel like you are drowning? Does laughter help you deal with difficulties? Let me know! You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat under @MelleRobot.
