Can you remember the last time you had fun, leaving all your responsibilities aside? If you don’t remember, you probably need to bring some fun into your life to make it interesting and worthy. Here are some ways to add more fun to your life and a few assumptions that hold you back
Assumption #1: What other people will think and say
If you are worried about your image to others and how they will react to what you do, it’s time to chuck those feelings. The fact is that others do not think about you as much as you think they do. You cannot read their minds, and if they perceive you as silly for your doings and happiness, then you don’t need to be around them. Be who you are and do what you love. Remember that those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
Assumption #2: You have to spend too much money
This is one of the biggest myths, that you need to spend money to have fun. It is said that the best things in life are free. You don’t have to go on expensive trips and buy expensive gifts to have fun. Sometimes it’s just about spending some happy hours with your friends and loved ones. Take part in your community activities or enjoy low-cost fun activities.
Assumption #3: You’re running out of time
There is always time to have fun. It’s not about blocking your whole day, but taking out a little time for fun and the activities you love. It’s always about your priorities. If you want to have fun, you will make time.
Assumption #4: You need to plan it
Usually the most fun is found in spontaneous plans, not planned activities. Go with the flow and let things happen. Live in the present and don’t stop yourself from doing the things you like. The right time is now. You don’t have to plan weeks or months before as it can be disappointing.
Assumption #5: You mistake solemnity as seriousness
You have this one precious life, this is all just once. Live it and love it. It’s up to you to make your life. Don’t be too serious all the time bearing the pressures of your life. Doing fun things will not only make your pressure lighter but you will enjoy yourself more.
Here some ways to add fun to your life:
- Laugh, a lot
Research at University of Glamorgan in Wales found that as we age, we stop laughing as often. Laughter is good for you and your health, it reduces stress. Watch your favorite shows and laugh with your friends and family.
- Be social
If you are thinking of taking a class or exercise group, take your friends with you. This way you can regularly be in touch with them and spend more time together. Crack jokes with your friends, go on outings with them, have parties together. All these things add great fun to your life and you will start loving your life even more.
- Love and forgive
Life seems tough when you are hung up on things that irritate you, like the annoying habits of your neighbors and family. Learn to forgive people and to love yourself. If you are sad about your flabby tummy or thighs, don’t be. Per experts, the more we accept the things and people around us as they are, the more we push boundaries and experience joy and fun. Accept yourself as you are.
- Go to the top of a building
This one is amazing, it can make you feel heavenly. Go to the roof of any high-rise building and look down, feel the vertigo that rushes in. It will refresh you and help you think better. Make plans and think about creative endeavors. Talk to yourself, you may love it. You can plan a rooftop date and add things you like.
- Dance like nobody is watching
Turn on the music, turn up the volume, and dance like mad. You can even dance around strangers as you are not going to meet them again anyway. Dancing is fun and good for your health, it will make you feel awesome.
