3 Reasons to Let Go and Have More Fun

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, all work no play makes Jane a dull girl.

Chances are you know you need to let go, lighten up, and let some more fun in your life. And maybe you wonder why.

Reason number 1 is because in your competitive and fast-paced world, you have more than enough stress and exhaustion – both of which you see are detrimental to your health physically, emotionally, and mentally. As you let go and have more fun, you de-stress and you are also less cranky.

Second, you’re working so hard for that rainy day. The thing is, at the rate you’re going, when that time comes, your body won’t be in tip top shape, and will be working overtime trying to protect you from disease. If letting go and having fun translates into getting you to laugh more, stress less, enhance your memory, improve your physical appearance and mental health, and live longer, I’d say those are good reasons to have more fun, don’t you think?

Third, having fun can be excellent bonding time. If your family and friends think you’ve been missing in action (MIA), fun can help you maintain relationships and increase intimacy with the people you hold dearest and closest to your heart.

Although you want to stay on top of your game at work and keep up with the demands of life, loosening your grip on the steering wheel of your life to pause and take a break, to see and enjoy what else life has to offer is equally, if not especially, important.

Tennis player Serena Williams, while ranked among the world’s top-performing and highest-paid female athletes, went to school to train as a nail technician. Was it a marketing stunt? That’s beside the point. The fact is Serena shows us she knows it is important to let go and have fun, which she should.

Now I can’t resist taking an informal survey… so tell me, are you having loads of fun in your life, what makes you feel good, happy and alive, and despite what others say about how blondes have more fun, I don’t think the color of your hair has anything to do with how much you can enjoy yourself, so why not include what color is your hair?

Ciao!

    Hi Esther,

    Thanks for jumping in.

    Everyone has a different idea of what fun means. Make your own list of what sends surges of feel-good feelings through your body and gets you happy.

    And stick around.

    Ciao!
