The Happiness Project: May 2015
Be Serious About Play
Part 1: Find More Fun
"Happy people don't need to have fun," but in fact, studies show that the absence of feeling bad isn't enough to make you happy; you must strive to find sources of feeling good. One way to feel good is to make time for play!"
"Research shows that regularly having fun is a key factor in having a happy life; people who have fun are twenty times more likely to feel happy."
There are many things that we can do for fun, like working on crafts or a DIY project, reading a new book, or playing with our kids.
The first part of this month's challenge is to find more fun! That sounds easy, but in a world of busy days and filled calendars, you really have to make time to do fun things.
A few "fun things" for me are blogging (posting on my own blog and reading other blogs), cooking, working in the yard (planting flowers), going to the beach (especially walks on Sunday with Peter). Also, we are putting the boat over this weekend, so hopefully we can go for a few boat rides and maybe fish a little. I also want to learn more about my new camera and spend a little time taking pictures.
Find more fun.....that sounds perfect!!
