"At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities." — Jean Houston
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
During times like these, it is especially important that we open our heart to fun. Why? We are all more powerful than we can imagine! And we can only take advantage of that power when we feel good. When we feel good, when we are having fun, we create what we want. Fun is one of the critical elements required to create a calm mindset. That’s where our power resides.
Having some plain old fun feels good! And feeling good every day, especially now, is critical to our health. When I am working with clients on healing themselves, one thing we talk about is having more fun and feeling more light-hearted. We speak about the power of laughter, smiles, and joy.
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 light-hearted. 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.”
Having fun and playing have traditionally been connected with children and the early years of our development. Fun, play, happiness, laughter and a personal sense of freedom provide us with more fulfilling lives, and even more, it helps us stay young and healthy.
Research results are worth mentioning. Studies show that being more playful and having more fun deepens our relationships. It also keeps our employees more satisfied, and they stay with a company longer. In addition to improving our health dramatically, having more fun creates happier clients and increases productivity and sales. This "fun" that I am speaking of has brought any number of my clients incredible health, more customers, more sales, and more income, as they exude happiness and show up as their most magnetic, authentic self.
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.
When we have fun, we realize that we are living in the present moment, creating everything more easily and more quickly than ever before. So, it’s really quite simple. There’s no better way to take action today than to have fun with it! How can you make whatever you plan to do today fun?
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 and jump right in. When you feel good, you are moving forward, toward what you want. When you feel good, it means that you ARE having fun! And love is always at the heart of real fun, so you can’t go wrong!
Let your imagination expand and feel the freedom and joy of your day. Explore, be silly, smile a lot, laugh a lot, and make things "fun" all day long! Keep asking yourself throughout the day, "Am I having fun at this moment?" Yes?...great! No?...shift your thinking and create something that feels more fun!
Live just for the present moment, with fun as the priority! Love is always at the heart of true fun. So think fun, speak fun, and take fun action.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, FUN!
