“I’m going to go snuggle in my bed with my puppies,” says my 12-year-old. It’s a Saturday afternoon. A rainy one. My son has zero expectations for the day. He could care less what his friends are doing. He is not thinking about what school will bring in two days after the holiday break. His only concern is with the present moment. Which involves “vegging” in bed with his pups while playing video games. Meanwhile, I’m over here staying “on my grind,” stressing out over bills, car problems, the upcoming work week, and the complexity of managing life in general.

Do I, we, have to take things so seriously ? Can’t there be a little humor, a little joi de vivre, in each day? We prioritize our “to do” items, so why can’t we prioritize having a little fun each day? We schedule everything else in our lives to death. Why not schedule enjoying ourselves? Here are twenty-five things to try this month to prioritize having fun.

Most of all, stop taking everything so seriously. Life is fleeting. Enjoy every day to its fullest, and have some fun!

I like writing stuff. Mostly about personal development and gender equality. My opinions are my own.
