You might love your job. You certainly love your partner and your kids. While your schedule is full, and you are busy working your way towards your next achievement or goal—you must not forget the importance of having some good old fun along the way. You work hard, so you must find time to play, laugh, and experience the joy that makes life worth living. There is value in prioritizing things that are just for fun.
What Is Fun To You?
When was the last time you made time to do something you enjoy, just for fun? This could include hobbies, sports, and other extracurricular activities. There is no right or wrong answer, but it must be something you find fun:
- Creative writing
- Arts and crafts
- Going to a festival or fair
- Taking a vacation or road trip
- Trying something new
- Taking advantage of a spontaneous opportunity
There Is Creativity In Fun
You might not describe yourself as a creative or imaginative person, but almost everyone requires imagination to excel in their line of work. This includes formulating business plans or innovative projects at work. Like any other skill, imagination is one you must practice. So, add more creative fun into your week, and it will transfer to all areas of your life.
Aside from the joy and creative outlet, doing something just for fun will help to reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, and naturally increase the amount of mood-boosting hormones in your body.
