Got Fun? It’s Cheap and Healthy

One of the best ways to improve your life is to have more fun. Learning to take time to have fun is hard sometimes. In this busy world, there are always a million things you think you have to get done–NOW! What if fun was a priority in your life–so important that you put it on your calendar? That’s right, schedule some spontaneous fun.

Your Inner Child
Now’s the time to let your inner child become your outer child.
The health benefits of adding to your fun quotient are well-documented and with a little planning, surprisingly cheap. What is fun for you? Create your inner child fun list of things you already love to do and things you would llike to try.
In Case Your Funometer is on Empty…
There are lots of ways to add fun, so if you can’t think of fun stuff because you’re out of practice,  here’s 30 fun things to do and Simple Dollar has over 100 things to do during a money-free weekend. Not all of them are my idea of fun, but maybe I need to broaden my funometer criteria.
Buy a Good Joke Book and Share It
No kidding–telling jokes is fun and silly–be sure you get your silly on as often as possible. It’s easy to forget how much fun silly is! There are lots of joke books out there–grab one and just open a page and read a joke out loud–even if it makes you groan! Kids love jokes too and there are lots of kid joke books too.
So, got fun? Located your silly spot? Learned a new elephant or knock-knock joke? Got that kite out and ready? Great–I’m so proud of you!
