Do you know how to have fun?  Is fun part of your daily life?  As a continuation of yesterday's blog on renewal, I thought it would be great to talk about having fun.  Then I saw this morning when I logged on that today is the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street, an even better reason to discuss fun.

In life we know how busy we can be, we know that our work life can be full of stress & sometimes our home life can also be stressful too.  One of the best things to do for stress is to have some fun & especially to laugh.  Laughter will lift your mood regardless of how you're feeling.  In this day & age people sometimes are afraid to laugh because they worry about others reactions to their laughter.  I say stop worrying about what other people think, have fun & enjoy your life.

We put so many pretenses into our life, if I do this it will mean that's going to happen.  Sometimes you'll be surprised at the reaction of others in your life & truthfully we shouldn't be concerned about others reactions in our lives.  If we come from a place of love people will be accepting & may have some fun too!

Now obviously in a corporate environment you have to be sure you're within the rules of the company you work for, but there's nothing better then having some fun & having a great laugh.  I did a blog on laughter a couple of months ago & was amazed at the therapeutic effect of laughter.  There have been some great studies done on how a persons mood can change with just a good laugh. Laughter is truly the best medicine.

One of the best ways to have fun is to allow yourself to see the world through the eyes of a child.  The wonderment you'll experience by opening your mind to the simple little joys in life that a child finds is amazing.  Be a child & have some fun everyday you'll discover how easy it is to lift your mood & how much joy this simple practice can bring to your life.

Congrads to Sesame Street,

Till tomorrow,


Quote of the day: "Put fun into your daily schedule & you'll discover how much joy you can add to your life!"
