Having a little fun can mean better health
As we grow older we are inclined to stray further from our dreams because of responsibilities and what we perceive as obstacles or setbacks! Changing your perspective can change your world! It’s important to stay healthy. When we aren’t healthy: illness can debilitate and life can become an arduous journey. The reality is that it doesn’t matter how old you are we all need to have a little fun. I read the definition of fun is play, pleasure, merriment, amusement and sometimes teasing. Happiness is contentedness, delight, joy, and satisfaction. Total well-being is a key element to being content and happy and fun enhances life for those of us who are already happy. Happiness can fill our lives with joy and laughter. Knowledge is the key that makes the world a wonderful place to explore. Whether it’s learning about God, bridge, bird-watching, or learning a foreign language! Learning something new can clear your head, and help you find some much needed clarity while having a little fun. God did not mean for us to be sad or serious all the time. He tells us to get out and have a little fun. Ecclesiastes 8:15 says, “So, I recommend having fun because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun”. According to science, one way to improve our memory and concentration is to have some fun. Often, we forget how much fun life actually is! Finding joy and happiness can truly make us feel alive, connected and engaged. The world becomes more vibrant when we give ourselves permission to play. Having fun will reduce stress, while boosting our immune systems and can even prevent depression. Fun can keep us sane amidst the demands of daily life. In life and everything we do there must be a balance. I believe that everyone deserves to have a little fun, but we must be willing to work for it. I believe learning to laugh at yourself certainly makes you vulnerable and more authentic! So, get out with family and friends and try something new. Surround yourself with people who make you happy and laugh, so you can forget about the bad things, if only for today. Get in touch with your child-like qualities and start celebrating the life you deserve. We all have aches and pains as well as the wisdom and experience of growing older. It’s important to remember that spontaneous laughter has a stress buffering effect that helps you cope better. Everyone deserves a life of joy, comfort and fun: that includes you! My advice: laugh long, loud and hard, it’s simply good for you. And remember it’s never too late to have a little fun! After all laughter is the best medicine.
