Equal parts work and equal parts play, can make for one happy person. Now, that you have the work part down pat, it’s time to get a handle on the fun part, this is where this article comes in. Follow these three simple tips and you may enjoy life a little more.
In the Market for Fun
Some of us have hectic and stressful workdays and family lives, so the more fun to be had, the better. How do I have the most fun I possibly can?
1. Watching your favorite sitcom can provide hours of laughs. And, guess what? Laughter can be a catalyst for fun. Whether you are into the epic comedy, The Golden Girls or the more modern, Two and a Half Men, you are sure to release tension and be a happier you. If you can’t catch your shows of choice during the week, make sure to record them and watch them on the weekends. There is nothing wrong with having a mini-marathon recorded that is playable at your command.
2. Under normal circumstances, family and friends can bring out the best in us. Whether through a funny anecdote or unwittingly, our families and friends can brighten our days in the zaniest of ways. The favor may be reciprocated on their end; you don’t know how much your sunshine and positivity can brighten up another person’s day.
3. Pets, such as a dog or cat may actually do more for us than we do for them; they can help keep us sane. The next time your dog, Rex, wants to go on a log walk down a nature trail don’t postpone it, because your pet and yourself can explore together; not only that, your dog is bound to do something comical. Just be sure to watch out for the poison oak!
Working-Out your Funny Bone
Let’s face it: We can all stand to have more fun, whether through the help of a sitcom, family and friends or a pet, it can provide a calming release.
