Now a days we are always preoccupied by our work, school, errands and/or worrying. They have become a routine and thus we tend to forget how to have more fun. Do you still remember when was the last time you went out bar hopping with your friends? When was the last time you travelled? Have you ever played in the rain with your childhood friend again? But before you answer those kind of questions, you should know or maybe take a recap of what fun is.
According to dictionary.com, fun is something that provides mirth or amusement. It means that it ought to make you happy. Ask yourself. Are you happy? If you are already happy, what can you do to have more fun -be happier?
I’ve been asking myself the same questions twice now. I think it is because I definitely want to achieve more happiness and have more positive outlook this year. Of course I’m considering the fact that there are obstacles along the way and one of the things that I can do to cope with those obstacles is to stick to the plan.
Psychologies Magazine UK has given us tips about on how to add more fun to our lives.
Fight for the right to have fun- We all know that we have to be industrious and frugal if we want to live a good life but the good life we are aspiring do not just depend on working. Good life should be fun and as much as possible stressless. Take a break from work.
(Write) A fun diary- This is not an ordinary diary where you write all your happenings or plan for a month or a year, rather a worry-free and enjoyable entries with only the fun activities you have been doing. For example, write about the latest movie you’ve seen with your hubby.
Identify your fun blockers- Being honest to yourself helps you to point out what stops you from having fun. Are you tired of your job? Maybe it is time to find a new one.
Play is as important as money and sex- Playing plays a significant role in our lives as it helps us bring out the positiveness in us and it improves how we portray ourselves to others, in that way we are attracting positive energies that fuel our minds.
To sum up, happiness is not just a happening or an event which comes to us. Happiness is a choice that we make and we can achieve it when we decide that we want it. And when I say decide it means to act.
