The How-To Lounge: Having More Fun

Whether we like to admit it, the stress and burden of daily life often gets in the way of having a little fun, and without fun, things can get boring and depressing. I’m a firm believer that happiness is the key to good health and a long life, so why not incorporate more fun into your life? To see my ideas on how to do just that,


  • Give into temptation! Well, not every time, but it’s OK to break your own rules every once in a while. Stay out too late, eat too many brownies, and sleep until noon!
  • Plan a night with old friends. Reminiscing about old times guarantees some serious laughter. If you’re feeling really brave, pull out your old yearbooks or photo albums.
  • Do something that's out of your comfort zone. Just a small change can get your endorphins running high. If you’re a homebody, make a plan to get out. And if you’re already pretty adventurous, try something totally new like kayaking or skateboarding.
  • Splurge on good tickets to see your favorite musician or comedian. There’s nothing like seeing a live performance.
  • Host a barbecue for your best friends — it's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Most importantly, learn how to make even the smallest moments fun ones just by being open to a good laugh!

This is so true!!! I try to do something fun with my husband and/or friends at least once a's easy to get caught up in the stress and business of work and your daily life, but you HAVE to plan time for fun activities too!

I try to do at least one splurgy thing for myself a week, even if it's something small, like having prosciutto for dinner instead of a normal dinner :) It definitely helps me feel more balanced in life.
