When was the Last Time you had Fun?

The repetitiveness of daily life can take its toll if you are not mindful of where you are spending your time. Find out why having fun needs to become part of your daily routine.

A few days ago I picked up my son from school and he proceeded to tell me what he had done for the day. After listening for a bit he asked me how my day was. I told him I had a good day. He then asked me “Did you do anything fun today?” I paused, and much to my dismay could not think of one fun thing I had done that day. A rather sad moment. I realized the lack of fun was affecting the balance and creativity within my second chakra.

What is it Costing You?

When my son asked me point blank that question, I felt disappointed in myself. I started thinking about my daily routine and had one of those “hit you in the face” realizations that I seldom allow myself to do something I consider fun.

In fact, if you asked me what I like to do for fun these days you might hear a long pause. I do have hobbies and have many things I enjoy. I just have not done any of them for a LONG time. It has been longer than I would like to admit.

It amazes me how many hours housework can consume. I find myself begging off going to fun activities because of laundry or cleaning. Going to the local grocery store is necessary but I would not place it in the fun category.

Have you experienced something similar? With school, work, homework, and dinner the days just seem to fly.

Falling Back in Love with your Hobbies

I love to quilt and sew. I have a spare bedroom set up for that but have not done any quilting in ages. I used to love to sew and make quilts. The feel of the fabric in my hands is something I miss most.

The closest I have got to the sewing machine these days is to sew patches on my son’s uniform or a button on a shirt.

So, what is it costing me? Although other areas of my life have balance; I still feel lopsided. I feel like I have left a piece of me on the cutting room floor. So, I need to change up my routine and start adding fun back into my daily activities. I know I have chosen all this up to this point; and I look forward to making some new choices.

Benefits of Adding Fun back into your Day

  • Feel more energized
  • Allow yourself to laugh
  • Feel silly
  • Reconnect with friends
  • Increases circulation
  • Helps work through the winter blues

What can You do to have Fun Today?

So, what can you do to add a little fun back into your daily routine? Take a look at what you have placed on the back burner.

  • Take a fresh look at a hobby
  • Say yes to an invitation for lunch
  • Decide to do something just for yourself today
  • Sign up for a class
  • Pick a fun physical activity

I plan on getting back into my sewing room and reacquainting myself with my stash of wonderful fabric. What ideas do you have? What are you going to add back into your life?

I also only listen to music that makes me feel positive. Just last week I performed a hoop dance to the Happy song. Here is a link to it, I hope you enjoy watching it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILB5L9S_2No

I love this song! When I hear it in the car, I want to get out and dance, all I want to do is sing and smile 🙂 I just watched the video for it and I feel like I could cry, not because I am sad but because I feel overwhelmed with happiness and joy. How awesome would it be to dance the streets and be yourself and just be happy without feeling judgement? It would be priceless. One day I know our world will be forever “Happy”, until then, I will be happy just listening to it. I think the world really needed this song 🙂

I love this song! I saw a video where Oprah was interviewing Pharrell, and she played him a compilation of tribute videos that people had made all over the world to the tune of Happy – Pharrell got really emotional and started crying! They spoke about how the song came from a place of pure inspiration and joy, which is why so many people love the song. The interview is worth a watch, truly touching 🙂

Strangely enough in a way the video to that song does not make me happy…
the clothes in it look like factory fashions which to me represent the enslavement of others and the wearing of fashions created by the ruling powers. But i love this website, dont meant this to be negative, just sharing a human experience.

    Hi Jane,
    I appreciate you insights. You know, sometimes when a certain reaction comes up and we feel strongly about something it can be an indication of life purpose or an area where you are meant to make a difference. Not sure if that is the case for you, but I thought I would give you some food for thought.
