I don’t know if you are like me, but I spend most of my day busy doing something. It is always so much fun to watch my kids play together.
One day while watching my kids, I realized that I haven’t played in a long time.
Does your to do list seem to take over your life? Mine does. Do you need a little free time, but you don’t know where to start?
Let’s play again
As my children have grown, how they play has changed. It seems like when we become adults we forget some of the things we enjoyed as kids.
Think Back: Now you need to take some time remembering what you use to do as a kid that you enjoyed doing? I realized that I stopped even thinking about how to have fun anymore! Normally, I just do the same things to have fun: watch a movie or read a book. Then, I started to think back and remembered dance parties, dress up, and many other activities.
Take a break from the TO Do list: Give yourself permission to have sometime where you don’t have to be accomplishing something. I make sure that I don’t have any pressing items, and then I don’t let myself think about everything I should be doing.
Go Play: Now that you have some ideas of what you like to do for fun, schedule out some time to play. I have set timers or even set apart a full day. It is important to enjoy the time and not just use this time to check another item off your list.
It is important for our health that we don’t spend all our time anxiously trying to finish everything and cramming our days full. I hope this will help you connect back to your past and have fun and be happy.
I would love to here about your ideas on Facebook.
