Do You Have
Enough Time For Fun?
by Deborah Brown
Is there enough time in your day
for fun? Are you able to find moments to laugh at the little things? Are
you able to see the joy in your job, you family, and your friends?
Or, are you too focused on
getting things done rather than focusing on what's important to you? Are
you too busy checking off items on your to-do list? Are you unable to
remember the last time you had fun?
Fun is what brightens our world.
It gives us a reason to get out of bed everyday. It improves our health,
mental well-being, and self-confidence. You can not feel bad about the
things we should be doing when we are having fun every day.
Would You Like To Have More Fun?
Follow These Easy Steps:
1) Acknowledge That You Are
Not Having Fun
The first step to having fun is admitting that fun is missing. Once
you know it's gone, you can take steps to put it back in.
2) Recognize That Life Is Too
We say that we understand this, but sometimes our actions are not
consistent with our words. If we really understood that we may not be here
tomorrow, we would do everything in our power to enjoy today.
3) Realize That We All Make
Sometimes we cannot have fun because of guilt we feel from past
mistakes. All your guilt does is prevent you from moving forward. It does
not matter what you did yesterday. You did the best you could and you
should congratulate yourself for trying. Put it behind you so you can be
free to enjoy the future.
4) Spend Time Around Kids
There is nothing that fills the heart more than watching kids.
(Usually) They enjoy life to the fullest and they do so without
inhibitions or restraints. They laugh because they want to. They run
because they want to. They roll in the mud, snow, grass, etc. because it
feels good. Imagine if you could incorporate that kind of freedom into
your day. I bet it would be different.
5) Delegate Or Eliminate
If the day to day tasks are weighing you down, find ways around them.
Are you asking for help with the chores, or are you doing everything
yourself? What can you order online so you don't have to go to the store?
And, who can you hire to help with the cleaning, laundry, cooking, etc.
Yes these things cost money, but do you think that not having fun is
costing you more?
6) Schedule Time For Fun
In the beginning you may have to put fun into your calendar until you
are used to having it in your life again. I know this may sound funny, but
old habits die hard and your goal is to acquire new habits. After a while
you will find that fun will become a daily part of who you are. But, in
the meantime, you may have to put in some discipline.
7) Reward Yourself For Having
Guess how you do this? With more fun!
So, are you ready to find time
for fun? In return, you bring joy, love, passion, and intimacy into your
life. You will find that you are enjoying yourself more. Your friends and
family will want to be around you because there's something about you that
makes them feel really good about themselves. Imagine being able to give
them the gift of a fun you? So, will you make time for fun today?
