Are YOU Getting Enough…FUN?

Launching this site, all my classes, and clients, I’m LOVING it ALL, I have no buts! I truly find joy all that I do, the places I go, the people I work with, I’m beyond grateful for it all. What I DO want to focus on in this new year is adding in more fun. I’m freakin’ FUN and I want to get back to that place a bit more.

I started to think about what it means to have fun…so what did I do? I Wiki’d it (lame I know). Here’s the definition:

This below is from Wikipidia searching ‘fun’:

Fun is the enjoyment of pleasure and, according to Johan Huizinga, “an absolutely primary category of life, familiar to everybody at a glance right down to the animal level.” Fun may be encountered in many human activities during work, social functions, recreation and play, and even seemingly mundane activities of daily living. Fun may often have little to no logical basis, and opinions on whether or not an activity is fun may differ…The perception of time is shortened when one is “having fun”.

I love to dance, I’m adding it. I love to go to the movies…done, spending time with friends I love that too! I’m taking time for me to make my life full and complete. I’m makin’ it FUN! The goal for me is to be happy and have fun in EVERYTHING I do in all areas of my life. One of them is taking time for me. What will YOU do to add a bit more FUN to your days?

Post here, I wanna know…maybe we can dance togetha!!!



I can see you GETTING FIERCE!

  1. There are so many fun things to do – cruising in the Mediterranean, biking along the Hudson, surfing out in Malibu, skiing out in Colorado, watching the Super Bowl with friends, visiting a nice club on a Friday night – but when I think about all the fun things we may want to do, one question comes into my mind. How do we make more time for fun? We are only given 24 hours in a day, and day after day, except for weekends, I feel that this time constraint makes it even harder to put more fun into our days. For instance 8 hours of work (in the case that we don’t have to work late) would mean 1/3 of our day is already gone. 6 hours of sleep would indicate that another 1/4 of the day is gone. Add in commuting time to work and basic chores like cooking and everyday activities and things end up eating up our day. It can be said that if we enjoy and consider our work to be fun, then we would be having a lot of fun throughout the day. But my question here is rather than finding more ways to have fun, how do you make / free up time in your day to have more fun (apart from weekends, which are always fun)? I guess, what I am asking is if you may have any tips to become at efficient at not so fun things, so that there is more time for fun.

  2. @Dyan, I can’t dance at all, but I do enjoy it. Maybe you can show me how to next time. =)

    @GoldenRetriever, you are right, most of our days are taken up by “not-so-fun” things but I think you already hinted in your response about what the solution is… we need to learn how to make the not-so-fun things fun! That could mean finding the small things that you do at work enjoyable, like chatting with friends at the water cooler or socializing w/ the colleagues next to you cubicle. It can even be learning a new skill or taking an assignment that challenges or excites you. Outside of that, the answer is win the lottery, marry rich, or become a monk. 😛 The last part I just made up. But seriously if all else fails, it worth rethinking what you are doing and whether or not you should make a change. Yes, we all have bills to pay but if you read this guy’s blog, he can tell you that we don’t really need much in life to be happy. We just need to know what makes us happy. Hint: it’s not materialistic things.
    Best of luck to you!
