Today, we’re a taking a little break from all the serious things we’ve been talking about for the last few weeks. We all know that life can sometimes get too serious, predictable and boring. We need a little zest in our lives and so, we’ll be exploring our fun, passionate sides. When we enjoy the process of living, we will develop the strength and attitude to make a difference in the lives of others. No one can live a significant life without a good amount of fun every now and then. Fun helps passion. Passionate people live passionate lives.
Who’s ready to add a little zing to their regular routine? You can start today by picking one or more of these four easy activities to help you infuse more colour and passion into your life.
- Laugh really hard once a day. If you really think about it, most of us make do with just smiles or chuckles every now and then. Go out of your way to find something that makes you laugh and then laugh till your stomach hurts. Laughter releases happy hormones in the body and you’ll feel better immediately.
- Explore your creative side. You are more creative than you think you are. Do something that allows you to explore: design something, write something, create a delicious recipe, draw something, learn a new kind of dance, etc.
- Deliberately plan an outing with your friends. It’s a blessing to have good friends. Create the opportunity to spend quality time catching up and having fun.
- Meet new people. Expand your circle of association. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, let new people into your world and venture into theirs.
The effect of enjoying yourself will resonate in your personal life for a really long time and it will also spill into the lives of others. You’ll feel better, think better and even look better. And most importantly, you’ll be in a better frame of mind to help other people live better lives.
It’s your ONLY life. Make it significant.
