Fun times don’t have to end with childhood. Making time for play is just as important for children as it is for adults. Here are 10 ways to be more playful each day!
1. Make It A Goal
Playing doesn’t necessarily mean to play with toys – be creative! Just as you would for a meeting or appointment, schedule time in your day to daydream, reflect and decompress, or to simply have fun.
2. Laugh Often
“Laughter is the best medicine.” Throughout your day, make a conscious decision to laugh more, and often. It will brighten your mood, as well as those around you.
3. Have Fun at Work
Humor and fun in the workplace have many benefits, including a positive impact on your work as well as your coworkers. As you are with each other for 40 hours a week, enjoy your time together and have fun!
4. Play Dates
On your next date night aim for more fun activities like attending a sports game, visit a theme park, the zoo, a day trip out of town, etc. Even more so, consider trying an experience that is new and unexpected for you and your significant other – you both might have fun!
5. Have Fun Friends
Surround yourself with people who love to have fun and make any situation entertaining. If your friends are spontaneous, like to laugh and have fun – follow their lead and be willing to try new experiences.
6. Spend Time with A Child
Spend time with the little ones in your life and observe them as they play. Little kids know how to have fun! Pay attention to how they talk with one another and try to put yourself in their frame of mind.
7. Have Play Things
When you feel stress mounting, take a moment to relax and play. Have some simple childhood toys to get your mind off everyday problems. Toys can include a jigsaw puzzle, coloring books for adults, Play-Doh, Legos, etc.
8. Sing & Dance
Have a dance party! Sing around the house and dance when you do the dishes.
9. Play Day
Aim to have more fun each day, whether its indoors or outside, alone or in a social setting.
10. Get Playful with Pets
Try to spend more time with your pets by visit a pet-friendly beach, play fetch in the park, or take a hike in the woods. It will make you and your pet happy all at once!
