THIS WEEK: CELEBRATE YOU

In the spirit of having fun, we want to start with you. You are awesome. You are amazing. You are truly one-of-a-kind. However, in the scramble of COVID-19, there is a good chance you have had to weather a few storms and step up like […]

THIS WEEK: TRY A TREAT

We often believe we have to do something to earn a “treat.” Or, there are only a few times a year that we get “treats,” which can mean the rest of the year becomes about depriving ourselves. But, we all deserve to treat ourselves. This […]

THIS WEEK: LAUGH LIKE YOU MEAN IT

We have all heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.” It is one of the truisms we have always embraced and believed, usually without taking it too literally. However, science has proven that laughter truly is a medicine. Laughter reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, […]

THIS WEEK: CONNECT LIVE

The average person gets 58 hours of “free time” each week—time that we aren’t working, going to school, doing chores, eating, or sleeping. Not too bad. However, of the 58 hours, the average person spends 50 of those precious hours looking at a screen for […]

THIS WEEK: PLAY GAMES

Here’s a question we used to ask on a regular basis. It’s not that “Why?” question we threw at our parents or guardians for just about everything. It’s the “Can you play today?” question. Sound familiar? Or, if you’re like a lot of us, that […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS FUN

When did everything get so serious? Seriously, it’s time for us to get more fun in our lives. Sure, we get it. We all have responsibilities—there’s homework to do, deadlines at work, errands to run, chores to finish, bills to pay, exercise to get in—but that doesn’t mean we’re not supposed to enjoy life. We’re allowed to have a little bit of fun. So, we have two options to consider, and frankly, we think they are both good ones. First, we can switch up our mindset and choose to find more fun in our responsibilities. Instead of thinking, “Ugh, I need to go to the gym,” how about looking for the good and saying, “I love going for a run because I get to be outside, see people and nature, and feel great when I’m finished”? See, exercise just got a whole lot more appealing and fun. Now, just apply the same shift to the rest of our responsibilities. The second option is about carving out space for adding new and fun experiences to your life. Yes, we are all really busy, but we still get to engage in fun. So this month, get ready to feel great, smile, laugh, dance, play games, connect with friends, and create fun in your own way. Are you already smiling just thinking about it? That’s how powerful and important having fun truly is. Fun matters.
