I was talking to a friend today who explained to me how he doesn’t have time to have fun. Yes……he doesn’t have time to have fun!
I was gob smacked because I’m one of those people who can have fun doing literally anything. I can make washing the dishes and hanging the washing out a fun task. I absolutely adore vacuuming the house. I know right!?…….I’m a fun freak. When it comes to having fun I’m a fucking master at it!
If you’re lacking enjoyment in your life you’re definitely following the right person! So please take my advise and…….
Stop taking life so seriously and chill the hell out!
Worrying about this and that, and what’s happening next or what’s happened in the past is a waste of energy. Focus on the moment at hand, and enjoy it. You’re probably thinking……Amy…….that sounds all very well but it’s not as easy as it sounds. And guess what?…….you’re right! It takes a bit of practice but once you get into the groove of thinking this way I promise you will start enjoying your life much much more.
Give yourself permission to have fun!
It sounds weird but you really do need to give yourself permission to have fun. Allow yourself to have fun. Make time to have fun.
Some people self sabotage themselves from having fun by filling up their day/s with things they “must” get done. Appointment with this person, a meeting with that person, I gotta do this and I have to get this done or else. Or else what!? The world is gonna end!
Seriously you need to make time to have fun. If you’re one of these people that loves to fill up your calendar with things to do just to be doing something. I suggest booking a time with yourself to have fun. That’s a great place to start. Actually jot it down in your diary, or put it on your calendar MY TIME TO HAVE FUN. Do something that makes your heart absolutely sing.
Make this booking with yourself at least once a week. And this time is for you to do something freaking fantastic for yourself. Go to a day spa, hang out with your girlfriends, go shopping, invite your BFF over for dinner, whatever fun is for you. It’s time to start thinking of yourself and getting a tiny wee bit selfish. Everything and everyone else can wait.
And Remember –
Life’s way too short to be unhappy or unfulfilled. So do what the fuck makes you happy!
