Sometimes I take myself, and life, way too seriously.
Having fun is good for your health – mind, body, spirit – the whole package.
Kids are naturally playful, so if you have kids in your life, they teach you how to be present and play again. We all knew at one point, but we forget as we get older and busier.
Here is one quick way to shift into a more playful mindset and enjoy yourself:
Say YES when you want to say no. I’m very good at setting boundaries and protecting my alone time. But there’s also a time to accept the invitation, join the party, go and try something new. And you might surprise yourself and really enjoy it!
I had a great opportunity last week to go swimming with three friends and this unicorn. I said yes to the invitation, and I’m so glad I did.
Now it’s your turn. For the next few days, look for opportunities to say YES when you want to say no, to be more playful, and to have fun. Tell me about it in the Choose Joyful Health Facebook group, or share it at the bottom of the blog post here.
