How To Have A Fun, Happily-ending Dinner Party

When we feel stressed, stressed, we tend to avoid the negative emotion of discontentment and we find it easier to dwell on other negative emotions and problems as well. But if we practice meditation, breathing techniques, and other techniques that release feelings of tension, disappointment and dissatisfaction, we will find the ability and desire to laugh and have a good time.

For a good party, some of the simplest tricks are: don’t be too formal, avoid overly long questions, and don’t be too loud. The same goes for the party food and drink selection. I recommend that a party be set to one of the following levels and make sure that everyone is aware of the difference: No music, no drinks, no food, and lots of light, gentle laughter.

As a party gets longer, the following trick is to change the topic from discussion to joke and then get back to talking about the party topic again, a little bit earlier in the conversation as well. This also allows people to get a sense of humor and enjoy themselves more.

One last trick to enjoy a party or large gathering even more is to bring the food and drink to the table to make sure it’s all available at the start. You’ll end up having to do a lot of cleanup at the end of the party and you’ll find that everyone is more relaxed and happy to be around you.

Some other interesting ideas for effective discussions:

Bring a large selection of different games and other activities to play!

Bring some good books to share, or the library may have some recommendations!

Use a whiteboard so anyone can share their ideas and thoughts about the topic.

This is really a basic idea that almost anyone can easily implement. It just takes a little attention and effort!

Don’t be surprised by any negative feeling you might have! Practice positive awareness and practice breathing techniques and meditation to bring the unpleasantness from your mind into the present moment.

Make sure to bring a list of all the problems you will have in the future, so that you can take advantage of a conversation or a situation that will cause you problems at that very moment. If you have a difficult problem that was brought up before, make a list of all the times you have done things that brought that problem into your mind in the past and all the ways you can take steps to remove it in the future. Then, after the party, put together a list of all the people who are going to cause problems in the future, and make a list of those people who will be able to solve the problem for you.

Finally, don’t avoid the problem. When we experience an unpleasant feeling, it’s natural to want to avoid the situation rather than to confront it, but a lot of people get overwhelmed and feel threatened by the issue and retreat. I personally found the more I faced the uncomfortable situation, the more I began to feel more comfortable in dealing with the issue, not only so I could avoid it, but also so I could help someone else deal with it!

Be realistic. We can’t always change our negative emotions, but we can get to know them and how they affect us, find out how we can make them go away, and learn how to practice more meditation and mental awareness techniques so they can go away on their own.
