“I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore.” –Randy Pausch
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
When was the last time you felt happy and free? The last time you really had “fun?”
If you’d like to feel more authentic happiness, there are any number of things you can do. (For some examples, check out this blog, 10 Tips for Feeling Happy Every Day) Today, let’s talk about how it is especially important that we open our heart to fun. Why? When you feel the light-heartedness of pure fun, your life becomes easier as you live it in the flow. Fun is one of the critical elements required to create a calm mindset, and that’s where our power resides.
When I am working with clients on healing themselves, one thing we talk about is having more fun and feeling more light-hearted as often as possible. We speak about the power of laughter, smiles, and love. Leave the rest behind and concentrate on love, gratitude, and fun with joy in your heart for everyone and everything, including you!
Feeling good releases endorphins into our system, strengthening and supporting a healthy immune system. Having fun, laughing, and smiling often, also gives us energy and keeps us open and curious, more childlike, in the very best sense. This allows us to connect with others in a joyful way, sharing that potential for good health with them as well.
So, how do you do it?
You focus on making fun a priority with everything you do. You become more playful, more grateful, and more loving. You bring out the child in yourself often. In the book, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul, researcher and author S. Brown states that, “Play is a state of mind; a certain attitude we can incorporate into any and every activity.”
Studies show that being more playful and having more fun deepens our relationships. It also keeps our employees more satisfied, and improves our health dramatically.
The wonder of fun increases our vitality, youthfulness, and our level of energy. It improves our memory and concentration. So the old saying, “Laughter is the best medicine,” is VERY real! When you begin to consciously focus on having fun and creating all the little things in your day-to-day experiences, everything changes. That new feeling of joyful, loving fun makes it so much easier for us to create bigger things.
So, allow the child version of you to come out and play. Think about your intentions for the day and make the decision to have more fun with them. Act as if it's your birthday and you're 7 again.
Shift your perspective into the realm of fun. Find a lighter way to finish that very important project that you’re working on. Let go of the need to be so serious about whatever matter you’re dealing with. When you feel good, your heart fills naturally with love and you are moving forward, toward what you want. When you feel good, it means that you ARE having fun! And love is the heart of real fun, so you can’t go wrong!
Explore, be silly, smile, laugh (a lot!), and make things "fun" all day long! Now you’re on the road to joy and fun where all the magic and miracles abound!
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
